Hello, BVA! October Issue
Part of the culture at BVA is the allocation of budgets allowed for teams across offices to be able to get together annually and share in both company and team-building activities. After a managerial change and numerous new hires, the BVA design team scheduled an offsite retreat in order to further develop its already strong team chemistry with its new staff as well as create better cohesion with the designers in San Diego and Columbus. With a great suggestion by the Creative Services Director, Jacob Gilmore, the team decided to rent a Duffy boat for a cruise around San Diego's Mission Bay. On the boat the team would have open conversation, treats, and discuss their Big 5 results. The three Columbus designers (Jacob, Mark Oxier, and Sean Sewell) flew into San Diego for an entire business week to work with the San Diego designers. On Wednesday of that week, the retreat began.
