Charlotte

The Davidson office got into the swing of things on St. Patrick’s Day.  Who doesn’t love Green Beer, a great smorgasbord of delicious food (bangers and mash, Reuben casserole, shrimp, fennel and kale salad, Baileys cupcakes, salted caramel brownies, brownie cheesecakes to name a few things on our menu) and some March Madness Basketball?? You don’t need to be Irish to participate!

Five employees were able to help out planting trees on March 18. iQmetrix sponsorship committee made a donation of $1,500 to Trees Davidson, a local grassroots organization modeled after TreesCharlotte.org. The organization is dedicated to planning trees primarily through volunteer efforts. The organization also educates residents on the importance of planting trees to clean our air, ease storm water run-off, reduce our energy usage, cool our streets, parks and homes, increase property values and provide natural beauty. 10 trees were planted in two hours celebrating National Arbor Day! Thanks Guys!

Winnipeg

iQWinnipeg celebrated St. Patty’s day in true Irish style. We had a 60 person potluck, which featured, homemade beer, wine, perogies, meatballs, curry, a countless number of desserts and dips and even some KFC and Taco Bell. Needless to say, we did not go hungry last Thursday! Wes Petrowski won “most festive” for rocking all the green! His outfit featured everything from a green shirt and glasses to green converse sneakers and even a miniature Irish cap. The only thing that was missing were green pants!

Vancouver

In Vancouver, the iQcumbers moved up a division from C to B/C, with competition higher than ever!

Also welcoming a new member and spouse of an iQ employee, the team is growing in preparation for playoffs just around the corner in April.

Regina

Well, it’s here!!! Our second last day in the Regina office and we decided we would hold one last potluck to commemorate the occasion!

The turnout for this potluck was our best one yet with close to 50 in attendance and probably the best tasting and largest selection as well! There was brisket, pulled pork and jerk chicken to name a few!

Tomorrow we do our final packing and the movers come to collect the rest of the items that will be going with us to the new office.
