We rolled out the red carpet for employees at our Chelsea store in New York City last month! Each year, The Container Store celebrates employees who reach the milestone of five years of employment with the company. This year we thought, why not show employees how much we appreciate their years of service by treating them like Hollywood celebs!
The entire store was invited to our Friday night in-store event. The night began with mingling over fabulous food and drinks and then a sparkling cider toast to kick off the award presentations. Each honoree was presented with our traditional keepsake 5-year box and pin, and our store managers shared a few heartfelt words about each person. As a special surprise, each recipient’s 5-year box was filled with notes of praise and congratulations from all of our store’s employees. The honorees also submitted fun photos of themselves that we had displayed on gold stars around the party room in true “Hollywood Walk of Fame” style!
And no Hollywood event would be complete without the paparazzi! Our red carpet backdrops were the perfect setting for playful poses and pictures of the party-goers. There was music, laughs and memorable moments shared among everyone at the party.
Joanna Long, Store Manager of Sales and 5-year award recipient said to me that, “The Tenure awards are a special and exciting time every year, but this year the Red Carpet celebration was extraordinary! As an honoree, I felt truly special and celebrated for my time at The Container Store. It’s great to be treated like a celebrity on your anniversary!”
