The enjoyment of working at KKB!

Central to the core of office culture at KKB, Denver Colorado's CPAs, is the Enjoyment Committee (EC).  The committee is comprised of staff volunteers and with it's excellent intellectual capital and modest budget invest in great ideas, camaraderie and shared memories.

The enjoyment committee has provided various activities to assist in making KKB a more enjoyable place to work.  The first outing was a company ski day in the middle of the week back in February.  Our group has various levels of skiers who were spread out all over the mountain which we pretty much had to ourselves.  We did meet up and enjoy a warm lunch together.  Everyone had a great day.

In March the event was an office NCAA Basketball bracket pool and in April our office enjoyed a Rockies game.  The weather was a bit chilly but we turned out in our warm coats, hats and blankets, and with our support, the Rockies won!

The EC has also made our office environment more enjoyable in several ways.  A list of neighboring restaurants complete with our own rankings is posted on our community bulletin board, and we added a dart board in the kitchen for a break or lunch time entertainment.  Guessing the number of pieces of candy in a large, glass jar was a game won by Bruce Kirkpatrick.  Fridays during the summer were days when staff could pay $2 for the privilege of wearing jeans and a bake sale is planned for the near future.  We will be planning a family picnic next spring.

Many of us were members of a coed Softball team, the KKB Sox, for the summer season of June through August.  Participation was great and we proved to ourselves that accountants are not only one dimensionally talented.  We ended the season in 3rd place with a 7-5 standing, which wasn't bad for just wanting to get out and have some fun.  Office spectators joined the team for a couple social hours during the softball season.

In September we enjoyed a Comedy Club night, and we also started a Fantasy Football league which some of us joined for fun, but really don't have a clue what we are doing.  I guess that is why I am ranked 10 out of 10!

We recently held a Cosmic Bowling day for the families.  The kids and maybe some big kids enjoyed having the bumpers up on a lane or two so they managed slamming a few pins and even some strikes.

Several of the above activities will be annual events and of course we continue working on new ideas to make working at KKB a more enjoyable experience.
