Say YES to YES Week – A Week-Long Celebration Dedicated to Our Associates’ “Years of Exceptional Service”!

WGI’s uniquely coined “YES Week” returns for a second year of festivities and accolades to collectively celebrate and honor their employees’ dedication and accomplishments!
YES Week

YES Week was officially back for year two following an extremely successful inaugural year in 2021. YES Week was created to celebrate our hardworking associates with a week packed with giveaways, awards, and interactive events to commemorate their passion, efforts, and devotion to WGI’s continued success.

Essentially, YES Week is a collective anniversary party lasting an entire week!

YES Week 5 year anniversaries

Aside from the usual YES Week celebrations, this year’s affair was even more significant as WGI also marked its 50-year legacy as one of the leading professional services firms in the industry!

A new milestone anniversary year (5, 10, 15, 20 & 25 years) was recognized on each day of the week.

A total of 63 associates received milestone awards this year and were gifted with custom-made awards imprinted with their names to commemorate their years of dedication and service to WGI.

This year’s YES Week schedule was jam-packed with fun activities that featured creative games such as Zoom bingo, opportunities to laugh and have fun with others at Zoom dance parties, and daily competitions such as the industry-specific “Wordle of the day” competition.

For about five minutes each afternoon, team members came together virtually to stretch their legs and let loose at various Zoom dance party sessions!

All of the events were a blast and capitalized on some of the latest trends in the world of web-based games & activities.

From socks to pint glasses to pajama pants, each day brought a new surprise for our associates during YES Week!

To help get the crew over the proverbial mid-week hump, offices hosted an ice cream social for their staff halfway through the week, providing associates a chance to “chill out” and catch up with each other over a cold treat.

Throughout the week, associates took to WGI’s internal social channels to share photos, recognize other associates, and share personal experiences from an awesome week of celebration!
