At bloomfield knoble, we sometimes find ourselves a little in over our heads when it comes to extracurricular activities. There’s the local bowling league we joined, half-expecting the “season” to be a quick six weeks or so—it was nine…months…long. Then there’s the friendly little afternoon barbecue cook-off we decided to compete in, which turned out to be a 48-hour, 75 lb. meat-smoking clash of epic proportions.
Nonetheless, our intentions are always pure at heart: strengthen the office camaraderie and foster an environment of teamwork and trust.
I suppose that’s just one of the many reasons bk has been honored by the Dallas Business Journal as one of the best places to work in North Texas in 2015! So I guess I was a little premature with the “Mission: Accomplished” banner of a headline, as we are in contention with many other stellar companies to be awarded the overall designation on June 25.
For 13 years, the Dallas Business Journal has recognized “the best companies to work for in North Texas.” This is the first year we have submitted ourselves for consideration.
You could say that the company ping pong tournaments, sporting clays competitions, golf outings, “Fish City” Fridays, etc. contributed to the recognition, but to me, it is because the people who make up this company genuinely care about each other and want to make this place truly great.
We take such an immense amount of pride in the work that we do. It’s that passion for creating outright awesomeness that makes working here feel a lot less like work. While I may have been quick to break out the anointing oils, it’s hard for me to imagine a better team to be on. So to that, I say, “Mission: Accomplished.”
