With each day dedicated to different themes, employees had the opportunity to dress up, and have the best time honoring McGill’s successful past and bright future.
MONDAY SPIRIT WEEK THEME: 80’S DAY
The week kicked off with 80’s Day on Monday, where employees were encouraged to revisit the fashion and style of the 1980s. From neon accessories to voluminous hairstyles, the office was a colorful display of nostalgia as staff donned their best 80’s attire. This theme not only paid homage to the year McGill was founded in 1984 but also served as a reminder of the company’s journey and growth over the past four decades.
