It’s time to review the 2022 employee picnic and all company meeting we hosted June 23rd and 24th here in Fargo!
2022 Roers Employee Picnic Takes on Thunder Road!
Each summer, we host an employee picnic to get together our employees and their families from all over the state to enjoy an evening of food, fun and togetherness. This year was no different, but we did take a different approach than years past. Not only did our employees receive fun hats instead of our usual picnic tees, we decided to host this years’ employee picnic at Thunder Road in Fargo!
Although the day was definitely a hot one, Thunder Road helped provide the entertainment. Our attendees were able to have fun on the go-karts and bumper cars, take a swing at the batting cages and mini golf course, and of course had access to the arcade games inside where it was nice and cool.
For food this year, Roers reached out and secured Twisted Spork. The local food truck vendor provided the option for a build your own burger, brats, and 3 different kinds of pizza for our employees and families to enjoy! They were able to set up right on site and stayed open to accommodate anyone who may have shown up a bit later in the evening.
Getting families together to experience an evening of fun and an opportunity for coworkers to socialize outside of the workplace is always so fun.
June All Company Meeting
Roers hosts an All Company Meeting once or twice a year. The meeting is a great way to get team members from all locations together in one place for an in-person update on all that’s going on within the company. This year, we hosted our summer meeting at the Clubhouse Hotel and Suites in Fargo with breakfast brought in by Porter Creek, located right next door.
After enjoying some breakfast, we started the morning with our leadership team giving updates regarding each division of the company. We heard from our President and CEO, construction executives, CFO/COO regarding our property management, as well as a quick safety update and some HR reminders.
The company update brought to light some new projects and development items that have been in progress behind the scenes that are going to be great for our community. Our construction team provided updates about projects that have recently been completed (ie. Medora Elevator, Pulver Hall, Touchmark at Harwood Grove), some projects that we are currently working on (ie. St Paul Newman Center), and the opportunity for projects in our near future located all over the state. The segment regarding property management highlighted the standings for our commercial and residential teams and recognized the great work happening within our property maintenance team as well. Our safety manager gave an update on where we are standing with incidents this year so far and HR talked about new hires that have joined our team as well as reminded everyone about a couple employee resources and incentives to take advantage of.
We finished the morning by having motivational speaker, Dawn Chisholm, come and speak to our team about the importance of safety in the workplace. It was a great presentation reminding us how a split second decision to not take the proper precautions can change our lives in the blink of an eye.
Overall, we had a successful turnout and were able to hear about so many great things coming our way for the remainder of 2022!
Roers is continuing to build success and stronger communities in everything we do!
