Several times throughout the year, our Merchandising and Marketing departments clean out their closets and drawers and let the rest of us act like school girls by filling our break room with promotional goodies and putting them up for grabs. Being out of the office on such a day is rather stressful, as you know exactly what you are missing and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it... or is there?
Since I used to be present for Swagday, I know exactly how it all goes down: An e-mail is sent out from merchandising that the promo items are for the taking, slowly the email pops up in our inboxes, and not-so-slowly we all pour into the break room. Well atleast that is how it used to be for me (tear, tear) and so far, no one has gotten hurt.
Now, it goes like this: The email goes out that the swag is up for grabs, and those of us working from outside offices imagine the explosion of giggles and tug of war over the hottest new items while we reminisce about our own experiences with Swagday.
Okay, maybe it's not that emotional, but you know what I mean. Lucky for me, I have a team that has my back and makes sure I don't miss out. Upon my return to NY, I was greeted with a bag o' swag from my diamond team members, Adam and Sam (Thank you!!) They put aside an amazing selection and I will be forever grateful. What would you hope to see in your "Bag O' Swag"?
