NEWS & EVENTS ANNUAL KICK-OFF EVENT Annually, we hold a company-wide kick-off event meant to inspire staff as we chart a course to tackling another year as Hawaii’s largest insurance agency. This year’s focus was strengthening the power of One Atlas and learning how to achieve more together. We surprised the entire staff with an art project where each staff member took part in painting a single section of our 120-piece Koi fish painting. WHAT’S GOING ON AT ATLAS ATLAS SERVICE AWARDS KAPIOLANI HOSPITAL PARTY In our 2018 first-quarter staff meeting, we were very proud to recognize twelve individuals for their years of service to Atlas and our clients. Two individuals in particular have given thirty-five and forty years to the company! We appreciate their years of service, and it is these types of individuals whose commitment to Atlas makes us one of Hawaii’s Best Places to Work for ten years running! Every year, we collaborate with our sister companies—Island Insurance, PACXA, Tradewind Capital Group, and IC International —to plan an amazing Halloween Party for the children of Kapiolani Hospital. We host the games section, which included Halloween Hoops, Boo- bowling, and Halloween Toss. EGG-CITING EASTER! This year, the Office Activities Committee coordinated an Easter egg decorating contest! Quite a few people showed some “eggfort,” and they also enjoyed chips and a variety of dips to go with it! While the Easter egg decorating competition allowed our creative sides to shine, it was the Easter Bunnies (Myles Murakami and Keane Muranaka) that added such joy to our day! ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY HAWAII BUSINESS MAGAZINE BEST PLACES TO WORK EVENT This year’s event was extra special for Atlas as it marks our tenth consecutive year of making Hawaii’s Best Places to Work list, which allowed us to achieve gold status and to be inducted into Hawaii’s Best Places to Work Hall of Fame. We bought two tables for the event, with staff from different parts of the company coming together to celebrate this wonderful achievement. Our annual holiday party is a fun way to blow off some steam and end the year on a high note! The Office Activities Committee decided on an “Around the World” theme that was highlighted by dressing up as your favorite tourist or in your best cultural attire. From start to finish, it was a joyous time, complete with a delicious lunch buffet, costume contest, and live entertainment by Da Braddahs! SWEET CREAMS We invited Sweet Creams down to our office to help us celebrate the completion of the third phase in our transition to a new agency management system. The sweet treats are meant to thank our staff for their hard work and determination in learning the new system … and it was sure delicious! What a sweet treat and break in the middle of the afternoon! 3
