Beat the Winter Blahs

It’s so easy to get sucked into the winter blahs this time of year. The holidays are officially over and it’s nothing but dark and cold outside. We can help you to shake off those blues with these tips:

clean and messy deskDeclutter! Starting your day with a clean space can help you to be more productive and creative. Take advantage of the time spent indoors and clean your desk, office, purge old files, etc. Why stop there? Go ahead and make the rest of your life just as productive and clean your fridge, organize your closets and more. This is a great way to keep yourself organized and ready to start the year off right.

Add color to your office

Give your office or room at home a bright new look! 

Adding pops of color can really lighten the mood on those cold, dark days! You can easily do this with small office decor or add some flowers in a vase!

 

play outside in the winterGet outside and play!

Bundle up and get outside for some exercise, especially on sunny days! Sunlight is a natural mood-enhancer and exercise stimulates and warms the body.

2014 AJ & IHC Summer Meetings

Our AJ IHC team had our summer meetings June 16th-June 19th at our St. Louis Headquarters. This is an opportunity for the entire company to get together from across the country for educational training and growth development planning. As departments we showcase our growth and explain how we plan to grow even more in the remaining part of the year.

It’s this time of year our IHC team also gets the chance to shine and really show off how much work they’ve put into the year so far. After reviewing our brand and team growth for the first half of the year each IHC team member gets to share their successes.

IHC team gets to showcase their individual service growth and role development.

 

 But it’s not all work. At AJ we believe: work hard, play harder! So after our meetings we get together for some good food and fun. The annual washers and bags game is always a fierce competition for all!

IHC Does Random Acts of Kindness!

At AJ we believe our company culture is very important. This frigid winter weather here in St. Louis had our headquarters feeling the winter blues. So our IHC team decided we needed to do something about it! We decided to spread some IHC cheer and give out Random Act of Kindness notes throughout the office to brighten everyone’s day!

The response we got was great. Everyone was wondering where these positive, uplifting notes came from. It became a guessing game and really helped to lift those winter blues.

We believe to spread our IHC culture to our customers we too have to feel it, so we try hard to keep our internal customers, our employees, just as Insanely Happy
