Paragon National Bank celebrated its annual Employee Appreciation Week last month with several activities and assorted refreshments for members of its team. Each year, Paragon plans and hosts this weeklong event to recognize employee contributions and celebrate the bank’s accomplishments.
“We want to ensure that our employees know that their hard work and dedication to Paragon is noticed and appreciated,” said Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer at Paragon National Bank. “Employee Appreciation Week is a time where we can all get together to recognize the bank’s accomplishments, none of which would have occurred without our devoted employees.”
At the beginning of the week, employees gathered for an ice cream social where management team members, including Mike Edwards, Lewis Perkins, Shaw, Marshall Talley and Andy Taylor, dished out ice cream sundaes. On Tuesday, staff members began the weeklong Blankets for Le Bonheur initiative, which provides employees with time and materials to make no-sew blankets for the children at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. In addition, Paragon treated its employees to a selection of cupcakes from Muddy’s Bake Shop and offered a yoga session later in the afternoon.
After providing breakfast on Wednesday, Paragon encouraged staff members to enjoy massages at the bank’s Fountain Place and Paragon Place locations. On Thursday, employees gathered at the Cordova Bowling Center to partake in a friendly bowling competition. Continuing its tradition of giving, Paragon wrapped up the week by organizing a blood drive that allowed for staff members to donate to LifeBlood throughout the day on Friday.
