CK Preppy Day

Well, I figured I would start it out with a bang this week! Part of the office celebrated CK Preppy Day this week. Trust me when I say these guys took this seriously and it was an all out competition.  One guy, Kyle (one of our Sales Account Managers), decide he was not dressed good enough so he went home and had a “costume change” and brought back his golf clubs to kick it up a notch, and then to trump everyone else he went and did a prep photo shoot at the lake.  Kyle did win best overall…Congrats Kyle! Around CK it is either go big or go home, even when it comes to CK Preppy Day.

Warehouse

We have this new fad in our warehouse that started up this week.  It seems most of the guys back there have acquired scooters and are using them to get around – not just in

First off, I apologize for the “Awesome Week in Review” being MIA for the past week.  I took a vacation day to enjoy the beautiful weather.  It was amazing! But, enough about that…on to the current Awesome Week in Review!

CK Roadtrip

This past weekend we had a few of our purchasing/sales guys take a little “roadtrip” down to Florida for an industry event in the CK mobile.  They left at 5-dark-thirty (before any of us were up!) and drove all day. It was cool though we had a cool little 10% OFF coupon code on the back of the car – gotta take advantage of any billboard we have!  The drive down seemed to inspire Carlos to wear his driving hat, but drive Jonathan to hide and sleep the whole way. (Thanks Geoff for the incriminating pictures!) There was a casualty on the trip though.  Carlos’ iPhone 5 was having a great time on the trip until it took a dive off the table. Poor Carlos…what’s this, your 4th one?

 

Geoff BDay

We also celebrated Geoff’s (from our Purchasing Department) birthday! As with most birthday’s around here, his desk space was appropriately decorated.  This would not be complete without a

You remember us talking about LEGO being so kind and giving a few LEGO construction guys to us to use with our yearly business theme (go HERE to see info about the theme), well we passed the little guys out this week to the staff, along with our new Core Value cards.  It seems that, unbeknownst to us, the little LEGO guys have made themselves right at home around office and settled into a daily routine of doing typical office things around here like fishing in the fish tank, bench pressing cars, taking naps, and umm…other “normal tasks”…sigh. I think they fit in very well around here.

 

Speaking of Core Values, we rolled out another cool thing around the office this week. We now have a Core Values – Wall of Fame.  The basis for this is that anyone in the company can submit the name of a co-worker, along with the reason why, to be recognized for

What word comes to mind when you think of CablesAndKits? For me, it is the word “random”. I think it applies very well! You might look at the picture above and think to yourself, “What in the world?” I look at the picture above and think, “Just a typical day at the CK office.” What better way to express our randomness and fun than our version of the social phenom Harlem Shake! We will affectionately call it the CK Jig!  To view our version of the Harlem Shake click HERE.

Another case of randomness – which seems to be a theme around here this week.  Here we have two members of our

It was that special day of the year where there was an abundance of chocolate, love, and flowers everywhere…Valentine’s Day! (Or for all of those singles out there… Singles Awareness Day.) We decided to help “set the mood” in server rooms all across the world with a few of our own CK Valentine’s Day cards, which seemed to be a hit on our Facebook & Twitter pages.

 

Four of us went to a conference this week in sunny Orlando. We got to hear from some amazing speakers and meet some awesome people, but of course the a trip to Orlando would be crazy without a Disney experience. With that in mind, we decided to hit up four Disney parks in one

This week (actually today) we celebrated the 32nd birthday of Chris, our E-Commerce Director. He tried to let it fly under the radar and not draw much attention to it, but we couldn’t let that happen! I will say this is probably the most random office decorating that I have seen here at CK. It has a little bit of everything, but I have to confess I have no clue what is up with the Little Mermaid head with Micky Mouse ears on it.  That is just kind of creepy. Happy birthday, Chris!

 

This week we started renovating our current breakroom into a conference room (pictures to come in a future blog) and we began building a new breakroom in our warehouse area. We got some nifty new cabinets and we

Today we celebrated the upcoming Super Bowl weekend by having a “Healthy Food” Super Bowl party sponsored by the CK Wellness Team.  There was an AMAZING spread of food including guacamole, salsa, veggies and dip, even a chocolate cupcake with only 105 calories!  On a side note, for those of us who wanted to splurge a bit, there was an awesome buffalo cheese dip as well! Big thanks to the Wellness Team for inspiring the healthy food day!

 

Brian, from our Purchasing department, has mentioned to everyone how bad he needs a laptop here at the office. It seems his fellow co-workers helped him out with a

It’s Fun Hat Friday (FHF) here at the CK office! We have some very creative (and weird – yes, we can say that because we have embraced it) people here at the office.  Always a fun time around here! Which hat is your favorite? Have any recommendations for hats for the next FHF?

It was a very eventful week here at the CK office! Lots of hype, lots of work and lots of weather…

 

On Wednesday, we had our first Quarterly meeting of 2013! It was an absolute blast!  As you can see from the picture, our theme for this year is a “building/construction” theme – we are looking to build CablesAndKits into the best it can be and truly become ‘Experts in Awesome” in every way possible to better support and take care of our customers! This quarter we are starting it off right by laying the foundation and “Doing the Right Things”. It is going to be an exciting year here at CK.

 

Our “rock star” Sales Director celebrated his 40th birthday this week!  He is getting a little slow in his old age, so we had to put up a

Hey you there… yeah you! The one reading this blog!

We have started a weekly blog in pictures to recap all (well, at least a taste of) the awesome stuff that’s happened here at CK during the week. Every Friday we will post new photos to recap the awesomeness, so stay tuned and enjoy the ride!
