WRECO Goes Bowling – June 2016

WRECO staff put their bowling skills to the test and cheered each other on at our staff’s bowling night on June 30 at Danville Bowl. While our lanes had some technical difficulties, like the conveyor belt not bringing the bowling balls back, everyone enjoyed having a chance to unwind, chat, give bowling pointers, and get competitive. The winning team actually had the most evenly matched scores in each game, with each member scoring around 80 in the first game and around 120 in the second game. Our president, Han-Bin Liang, also gave out prizes for the second worst male and female bowlers (so that no one would strive to do the worst!).

Thanksgiving Potluck 2014

Thanksgiving has come and gone but this potluck was one to remember!  The amount of food everyone brought filled up three separate tables.  We have the savories: fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, spring rolls, stews, and breads.

For dessert we had two different pies, egg custard, dozens of cookies, and cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory.

Healthy? No.  Delicious? YES.  Everyone was excited to take a lunch break for this potluck.

One of our employees even brought KFC; how can you say no to that?  Does anyone have any favorite dishes to bring to potlucks?

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble…
By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Open, locks,
Whoever knocks.
~ Macbeth, Act 4, Scene 1

Halloween has come and gone again here at WRECO. There were some spooky costumes and some decidedly wacky ones as well.  Who do you think had the best costume or most creative?

WRECO’s Annual Staff Planning Day was held on Friday, December 20th at WRECO’s Walnut Creek office. Staff from WRECO’s Oakland and Walnut Creek office gathered to share their lessons learned from the year, set goals, and learn about quality control and team building. Staff members were split into several teams to participate in a business proposal competition. Teams were given one hour to come up with a business plan and proposal to present to the rest of the company. During the final presentation, teams presented brilliant business plans for a pie truck, an engineering app, a city development agency, and more !

Much of staff would agree that this was definitely an exciting way to utilize creativity and strengths in teams and to get to know fellow staff members.

The WRECO Team carpooled to the Courtyard Marriott in Milpitas and started the day early with staff presentations. We made sure we had plenty of coffee on hand (of course). Each group presented an overview of their 2009 projects and goals for the next year. 

After our presentations, we enjoyed a buffet lunch prior to an afternoon of team-building activities.  See below for highlights of our activities.
