Did you know that every summer Rosco employees from around the world gather in Stamford, CT to discuss strategy, sales successes and look at new products or product developments? The theme for this year’s annual meeting was ‘Did You Know?’ So, I thought I’d take a moment and share with you some of my favorite Did You Know? statements that came out of the meeting:
Did You Know:
- That Rosco employs over 250 people globally, with offices in five continents?
- There are over 70 employees at Rosco with over 10 years of experience?
- How competitive Rosco people are?
At this year’s meeting we competed in Rosco-lympics – a series of games played one afternoon during the meeting. Events included Twister, Bananagrams, 3-Legged Race, Hula Hoops and more. Needless to say silliness ensued and here some pictures from the event:
This year’s meeting was special as we took a moment to celebrate our 100th anniversary together as a global company. The celebratory banquet included ‘casino-style’ games (did I mention we were competitive?) coupled with other boisterous events of the night to make the memories of Rosco turning 100 fond for all of us involved.
Perhaps the most moving moment of the night came at the end, when Hyacinth Callender read aloud a poem she wrote about what it means to work for Rosco. Hyacinth works in our operations department pulling gel sheets for outgoing orders and also serves as our poet laureate.
As the night drew to a close, you couldn’t help but think about how much has changed since Rosco first opened its doors back in 1910. As I shared the week with my Rosco colleagues, what became strikingly apparent to me was the one constant that has held true at Rosco since day one – Teamwork. It was Sidney Rosenstein & Mac Weiner back in 1910 – now it’s Sales, Marketing, Customer-Service and Operations professionals from around the world working together as Team Rosco.
