May CCM Recap

May 31, 2011

Each month, the entire Guidance team gathers in our main conference room - named Locker Room in honor of long-time client Foot Locker – for our Corporate Communications Meeting, or CCM for its initials. Announcements, company performance updates, trivia, and other subjects are discussed at CCMs – all while enjoying catered lunch from a nearby restaurant. Here’s a recap of what was discussed at today’s CCM:

  • Employee of the Month: Congratulations, Burjiss! Burjiss was acknowledged for his consistent and solid leadership role in all of the projects he handles. And for the month of June, Burjiss will get to park his car on the most coveted space in our parking lot – right next to our front door!
  • Trivia: Catherine hosted today’s CCM trivia. Inspired by Flag Day, which is coming up on June 14th, Catherine chose “Flags of the World” as the theme for her trivia. Did you know vexilology
  • New People: Today’s CCM was Jeremy’s first. We also have a number of team members joining us next month, including Rieko Noland and Amy Henderson (Project Managers, and Robert Jung and Tremon White (Developers). Welcome to our team!
  • Accolades: Congratulations to Sam, Gordon & Roshan for getting the top “billable” spots in April. May is about to wrap up, and so far, it looks like Colin, Craig & Roshan (again!) are on track to get this month’s top “billable” spots. Way to go, guys!
  • 2011 Themes: Lisa unveiled this year’s themes for Guidance: Communication Is Key, Learning Leads to Success, and Showcase Our Innovation. Next time you visit the Guidance office, you’ll see these hanging from our ceiling.
  • Executive Update: June will be yet another exciting month at Guidance! Four Magento projects will launch in June, as well as a brand new Facebook Commerce solution that we’re dying to share details of. We’ll also be kicking off a new mobile project that will allow users to search for local establishments, and working on 3 new Magento and Mediachase projects. Last but not least, our team will be attending and exhibiting at Internet Retailer’s Conference & Exhibition (IRCE) in San Diego, from June 13-17. Check out our guys at booth 1016!

And that’s all for today’s CCM. Next one is scheduled for June 28. Check back for a recap!
