Paragon National Bank celebrated their annual Employee Appreciation Week recently with various activities and treats for staff members. Paragon management holds this series of events each year to show their thanks to employees and to applaud the efforts of Team Paragon.
“Our employees are at the center of everything we do,” said Robert Shaw, President of Paragon National Bank. “They are so crucial to our success and it’s important to us to show our sincere appreciation for their hard work and dedication.”
The week started with a trivia contest about Paragon and its employees, the winner of which earned half a day of paid time off. Monday also started the week-long Blankets for Babies initiative: Paragon provided fleece, supplies, and time during the workday for employees to make no-sew fleece blankets for the children of LeBonheur. On Tuesday, employees enjoyed the Ice Cream Social, in which executive management served staff members ice cream sundaes. Later in the day, they worked off the ice cream with a special Zumba class taught by instructor Kimberly Hawkins. The trivia contest winner, Paragon Place Financial Services Associate Carole Hughes, was announced at the monthly All-Employee Breakfast on Wednesday. Staff members were treated to massages on Thursday and on Friday, staff members continued the tradition of donating blood to LifeBlood as part of the Employee Appreciation Week festivities.
