As a PCH employee, I thought I would share with you the magnitude of generosity bestowed upon our grateful and most dedicated team of colleagues. Not only does PCH grant enormous wealth and enchantment to thousands of lucky winners of our famous contests and giveaways, but PCH employees also get to feel like “winners” when we are treated to a fun holiday party at year end. It’s the company’s way of expressing thanks for our hard work and celebrating our achievements. This company is by no means cavalier about their appreciation and nothing says thank you more than icing off the year with a festive, All-PCH’er holiday extravaganza.
This December was my third PCH holiday party, and I would have to say each year tops the last. Held at the Royalton Country Club in Roslyn, NY for the second time, it was truly an impressive event that was enjoyed by all who attended.
Aside from the sweeping spread of buffet entrees palatable enough to please a king, the array of sweets could have put 5 pounds on me even before the first bite. It was a personal love affair with chocolate covered fruits, delicate pastries, creamy cheesecakes and ice cream sundaes, but the chocolate fountain was special enough to make Willy Wonka green with envy.
Once I recovered from my “coma de dolce” my colleagues and I sashayed over to the dance floor to “party hardy” with the rest of the PCH clan. How joyful it was to smile, mingle and relax with the same people who join us around conference room tables in product planning sessions and whose names we see on important memos. The whole PCH team celebrated together.
At last, but never the least, the much-anticipated PCH “Employee Raffle” commences. Everyone loves this part of the party because we get to experience firsthand the thrill of winning! I marveled all evening whether a plasma TV, Ipod, GPS navigation system or even a Broadway show could be in my near future. Unfortunately, much to my dismay, I was not one of the lucky ones this time, but I knew it was a close race when my name appeared on a big screen as a runner up. I can assure you that the PCH’ers who did win employee prizes were in high spirits!
My experience speaks volumes about PCH being a great employer. I know that by doing my best job in Product Analysis I’m part of a successful team and I’m proud to work here. In addition to spreading good will and fortune to thousands of winners through the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, the company goes to great lengths behind the scenes to cultivate an environment that encourages innovation, growth and excellent performance and celebrates the accomplishments of our entire team.
