On May 27, Intouch Solutions hosted more than 75 advertising professionals at its first AdHops happy hour and it was a blast!
AdHops is a monthly networking event organized by Ad2, a division of the American Advertising Federation – Kansas City (AAF-KC). The event is hosted at a different agency each month, which means ad pros get to check out the many great agencies around the metro in a fun, low-pressure setting.
Intouch was thrilled to host the event, and also to showcase the new offices we moved into last October to accommodate our ever-expanding workforce – 685 Intouchers and counting! AdHops attendees got to check out our workspaces, conference rooms and our “front porches” – the casual-seating areas with whiteboard walls where we gather for impromptu powwows or brainstorming sessions. The main event was held in the Intouch Café, where Intouchers hang out during the workweek to meet, grab grub, or chat over a beer with coworkers.
We are very proud of our company’s history and culture, so we were excited to show it off to attendees. Greg Kirsch, Senior Vice President, Learning and Development, shared the history of Intouch and our transition into the large company we are today. Our philosophy is “work hard/play hard,” and in that spirit, we prepared an Intouch Tailgate, complete with hot dogs, nachos, soda and a variety of beers on tap. For attendees interested in a little friendly competition, there were beer pong and corn hole/beanbag toss games. Attendees who shared #IntouchTailgate on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram were entered to win one of nine raffle prizes, including sunglasses, gift cards,
t-shirts and a Royals gift card good for tickets or merchandise at Kauffman Stadium.
While the happy hour was meant to be a laid-back introduction to Intouch, we hope attendees also saw that the benefits of being an Intoucher go well beyond the beer and swag. We work hard for our clients, and we reward high performers. We love what we do, and we love the people we work with. If you’re ready to work hard and have fun doing it, there’s a place for you at Intouch — check out our open positions today!
