What better way to welcome new employees than to get them dizzy, cover their eyes, and let them beat up a SpongeBob replica? That’s exactly what the latest additions to Kontera’s San Francisco office did this past Friday.
No one in the office seems to remember where the idea of “Piñata Fridays” originated, but the widely celebrated event has been going on for at least three years, with a shark, an over-sized San Francisco Giants baseball, the classic donkey piñata, and even Batman among the victims!
Keeping tradition alive, the latest Kontera employees to practice their hand to not eye coordination was a blindfolded Austin Allen, Campaign Manager on the Ad Operations team; Rinchen Lama, Production Manager for the Creative Team; Stephanie Ma, Campaign Manager on the Ad Ops team; and Jessie Nguy, Sales Planner on the Sales Support team. While all took their swings, ultimately it was Jessie, drawing upon her childhood softball skills who made it rain.
Everyone celebrated Jessie’s victory by of course eating a lot of candy. We may not know who began the tradition of Piñata Fridays, but we can certainly do our best to maintain it. Welcome to the Kontera family Austin, Rinchen, Stephanie, and Jessie!Categories: Inside Kontera
