Used to be, the holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Year’s was a mellow time at Absolutely Natural. Of course, during the earliest days I worked alone so the parties were easy to get together! When we started growing slowly, there was still a lot of down time and the few employees I had were able to take a deep breath and have a few weeks where things weren’t so frantic.
That was then and this is now!
The last few years there has been no winter lull in our production, sales or distribution. In fact, with the annual special we run on our web site, it has turned into one of the busiest times of year. Now, with nearly 30 employees it takes a little planning to get together an event.
We try to do a little something every month like a pizza day and birthday cakes, but during the holidays we up the game a bit. This Thanksgiving we had a giant taco bar set up for a “family” lunch that was catered by a local Mexican restaurant. For Christmas, we are having a fish fry.
I love the esprit de corps our employees show every day and especially their generosity during the holidays. In year’s past, we have sent crates of food, gifts and Absolutely Natural products to the troops and in addition, this year we are having a toy drive for our local children.
In addition to producing the world’s best products, our family at Absolutely Natural gives back and I couldn’t be prouder of them.
Here’s hoping you have a Happy Holiday.
