Koffee with Karvakko -
This time of year is extremely important to all of us here at Karvakko. Our office always has a great atmosphere; but during the holidays, it somehow seems a bit more fun. Of course the culture of our office comes directly from the Karvakko’s. This time of year is special because of them. Their kindness, generosity and spirit reach those in the community and everyone at KE and RRA.
Before our annual Christmas party today, I wanted to sit down with Sarah and talk about why this time of year is so important to us.
“Why is the holiday season so special to Karvakko?”
The Christmas season is very important to Karvakko because we, the Karvakko’s are Christians and we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at Christmas. The holiday is more than gifts and decorations (although we love those too!) and we want to keep Christ at the center of our celebrations.
“What does KE do to give back to the community around the holidays?”
As a company we love to give back at this time of the year. We participate in the Radioathon to end child abuse in December, there are the cute elves on the building that we share with our community, we share our gifts by filling a Tub of Love for a local family in need. There are so many things that we can do around the holidays to help others and we encourage our employees to help find ways to give back.
“What is your favorite thing about the annual Christmas party?”
Well, the food at our favorite Tutto Bene and visiting with everyone. The annual Christmas party is our big Thank You to our hard working, dedicated, awesome staff! We let our hair down and our belts out for a wonderful treat while we all celebrate a great year. It’s a time to reflect on the past year and dream about what is coming next. But mostly we say THANK YOU to our staff and their families! We are blessed with great people to help us on this journey.
“How do you think the spirit of Christmas relates to the culture at KE?”
We love Christmas! Just before Thanksgiving we host our annual Christmas Palooza where we gather as a company of friends and decorate our office. The evening is filled with food, laughter, tacky decorations…I mean beautiful ornaments and more laughter. There is also the annual Ugly Sweater contest! This event brings all of us together in a way most offices never do. We are blessed with a boss who loves Christmas and hanging out with our great staff! It’s a fun time that we look forward to all year!
“Has the office always been adorned in Christmas decorations?”
Yes, the office has always been tastefully decorated! But Mike said that this year we might have brushed up against tacky. LOL!!!! That says a lot coming from him!
If you haven't stopped into the KE office this season... here is what you're missing!!
(Yes, we hung a Christmas tree from the ceiling... again.)
