Forty may be the new thirty, but at Strong Automotive Merchandising, we wear our 40th birthday badge with pride.
Staying successful for four decades isn’t always easy, and to recognize that, Strong is unveiling a new round of employee challenges. We saw the first installment with the Chubby Bunny Challenge. Account Team Assistant Peyton Chandler took home the gold, proving he could fit more marshmallows in his mouth than anyone at the table. Add that line to your LinkedIn!
The challenges run the gamut from eating contests to fitness tests. And if testing your physical limits isn’t your cup of tea, not to worry, a chalking contest is in the mix for a milder flavor of competition.
July 13 at 2:30 p.m., we’re celebrating summer with the Strong 40 Volley Challenge. Teams of two will fight to the finish for the title of reigning volley champions. For this challenge, you’ll need to be skilled in teamwork and hand-eye coordination. Having long arms might help, too. The goal of the volley challenge is to hit the ball back and forth without letting it touch the ground. In our case, these will be blow-up beach balls. The first team to reach 40 successful volleys wins.
What do they win? You have to be wondering. With this challenge, we’re introducing the newest, coolest, most exclusive token of victory – the Strong 40 Stick. This scepter of superiority will be given to the winning person(s) after every new challenge and will remain with them until a new champion is named.
Practice your returns and sharpen your serves for your chance to be the first owner of the Strong 40 Stick, and put your bragging rights on the books. Stay tuned for all we’ve got planned this summer at SAM, and congrats on 40 fast years.
