Community management leader answers employees’ call to host festival again in 2021
As progress continues with the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still a lot of individuals and organizations trying to figure how to host gatherings safely. This year, CAMCO (Complete Association Management Company) wanted to make sure its annual employee appreciation event was a safe one. So, leaders asked employees for input, and they were surprised to learn that the adjustments made for the pandemic last year actually helped to create a great employee appreciation gathering.
In 2020, CAMCO employees and friends enjoyed a “Socially Distant Fall Festival” in November. It was hosted outdoors in the company’s office parking lot at 4775 West Teco Avenue, in Las Vegas, to allow for social distancing and other safety measures. But the event was such a success, CAMCO employees decided to do it again in 2021, even as the pandemic loosens its grip on Southern Nevada. In the past, employee appreciation gatherings were hosted in the summer, with staff and families attending a sporting event together.
“We’re not completely sure yet, but we may have this become our annual employee appreciation event going forward,” said Mary Rendina, CAMCO’s marketing director. “We found the vendors enjoy it, too. Everybody gets to interact with each other really well, and we can still distance and stay safe if we need to.”
At this year’s Oct. 22nd festival, renamed the “Halloween Spook-Tacular,” CAMCO vendors sponsored food trucks who served tacos, hot dogs and other treats, and hosted a trunk-or-treat for children, along with other games and attractions for employees, their families. Even some of the employees’ neighbors attended. The festival was again held in the parking lot of CAMCO’s main office in Las Vegas.
