AUGUST 12, 2016 Patio Lane, known for its open office, work space concept and recently a finalist in Tampa Bay Business Journal’s coolest office space competition, announces a full week of employee appreciation, beginning Monday, August 14th, with daily food trucks feeding their employees and a grand finale to be held at 3 Daughters Brewing in St. Petersburg.
As companies try to compete for the best workforce talent, studies have shown that events such as these help to foster a positive work environment therefore increasing productivity. VP of Marketing at Patio Lane, Wendy Schechner, says “we try to continually raise the bar for innovative ways to thank our team for their dedication. We’ve done everything from canoe trips, shuffleboard parties, and even paintball, and we use these events to build comradery across different departments where some team members may not otherwise have the chance to interact”. The list of participating food trucks includes: Hott Mess Food Truck, Kona Ice, Disco Donuts, A Taste of Chicago and Café Getaway. The week will come to an end Friday night with a private celebration at 3 Daughters Brewing in Downtown St. Petersburg.
