McGill’s Annual Holiday Party Brings Together Staff from Across the Southeast
On December 10th — after two years of having a virtual holiday party — McGill employees from across the Southeast came together in Asheville to celebrate the holidays in person with fun games, great food, and good company.
Our staff always looks forward to this time of year — when we can get together with our work family to reflect on and celebrate how we have shaped communities in the past year.
ESCAPE ROOM EVENT
The day started out with McGill’s young professionals group hosting an escape room event at Breakout Games in Downtown Asheville. Over 30 McGill employees and their guests were given 60 minutes put their critical thinking and teamwork skills to the test in order to break out of their assigned escape room in time. The team with the fastest escape, managed to crack the code and get out in 47 minutes and 11 seconds!
Following the excitement of the escape room, we headed down the street to S&W Market where our employees enjoyed a delicious lunch, beverages from Highland Brewing, and socialization.
MCGILL ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY EVENT
Later in the evening, McGill’s annual holiday party got started at The Venue. Following a social hour, staff enjoyed dinner and a new hire trivia game. Then, tenure awards were given out for 10, 20, and 30 years of service to the firm, and pictures of four new McGill babies who were born in 2022 were shared.
Asheville Office Manager Mark Cathey then took to the stage to make the much-anticipated announcement of which office won the annual Christmas photo contest. While all of the entries were unique and fun, the Hickory office was this year’s big winner!
McGill Recruiting and Engagement Coordinator Kailey Bevins said, “The Christmas Party was super fun! It was great to get everyone together and to see people from all across the firm. We had a great turnout — over 130 people from all of our offices. Our presentation went really well too — shoutout to Matt Jones for making us all laugh with the new hire game. Hopefully, next year’s party will be just as good, if not better!”
LOOKING FORWARD TO 2023
Despite the fact that this time of year is conducive to reflection, McGill is always looking forward and formulating plans for how we can continue to provide the highest level of service to our clients and communities.
