Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, the Ants start the day with a brief meeting that we call “huddle.” Our employees are split into groups of three or four and a different group leads huddle each week. Each huddle begins with announcements and ends with an activity. The theme of the activity varies depending on the day of the week. Wednesdays, in particular, are always of the wacky variety.
Wacky Wednesday activities can range everywhere from a few rounds of hangman or Pictionary to an afternoon ice cream social to beat the heat in mid-July. And when big events are approaching, Wednesdays get even wackier—evidenced by our Superbowl “tailgate,” complete with a mini-cornhole tournament and our March Madness mini-basketball shootout.
From group coffee runs to the café next door to participating in chair yoga sessions or watching a compilation of funny YouTube videos, the possibilities for Wacky Wednesday are endless. All wackiness aside, huddle is a great way to get our employees engaged and excited for the day ahead.
