What a year this has been for Impact Recruitment. The start of September marked the beginning of a new fiscal year for us, which (of course) meant that a party was in order to celebrate everything we’ve worked together to accomplish over the past 12 months. We’ve met wonderful candidates, partnered with new clients and continued to grow our relationships with those we’ve been working with for years. Our team has almost doubled in size and we’ve added a new IT Division. To top it off – we were thrilled to find out that we made the PROFIT 500 list of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies for 2017! So, as previously mentioned, it was a year worth celebrating.
If there are two things that everyone at Impact has in common, it’s this: we like a little “friendly” competition, and we love a good theme party. Keeping these facts in mind, we divided everyone (the CEO and President included!) into teams of four and instructed them to dress up in their fanciest, Kentucky Derby-esque ensembles. The evening began with drinks on the patio, enjoying our “signature cocktail” (a delicious homemade frosé) before the teams set off for a round of pub golf.
The goal of pub golf is to complete a “course” where each hole is a different pub or restaurant. At each location, a member from the team has to complete a drinking-related task. We pub-hopped our way around the city (cheering on our own teams and heckling the others) and ended the game at Rogue where all forty-something of us toasted to a wonderful year at Impact Recruitment. Following the game, we made our way back to the office for a delicious spread of meats and cheeses, salads, desserts and more drinks (plus some dancing!) on the rooftop patio.
It was a fantastic night and a great way to celebrate everyone and their successes over the past year – both individually and as a company. From our co-workers to our candidates and clients, we are truly lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing people. Thank you to everyone who made this fiscal year so memorable, and cheers to whatever the next one has in store!
