December 13, 2016
We’re not even two weeks into December, and the Levvel team has demonstrated it has holiday spirit to spare.
The company participated in two community drives this month—Code for Charlotte‘s laptop drive, which helps bridge the digital divide by putting laptops in the hands of underserved residents, and the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, which helps kids and senior citizens celebrate the holidays with gifts from their wish lists.
Once the last “Santa bag” was collected for the Salvation Army, Levvelers enjoyed a holiday potluck so big that it required a separate room just for the desserts (and the eggnog).
After enjoying everything from manicotti and chicken biryani to Korean dumplings and barbecue, they gave their undivided attention to the pumpkin crunch and chocolate chess pie—and to the results of our first ever Ugly Holiday Sweater contest. Below are some of the entries. We’ll let you guess who took first place.
No matter how ugly things got on Friday, everyone showed up in style for the holiday party on Saturday. As CEO John Espey noted in his toast, the Levvel team had much to look back on and celebrate. 2016 has been an exciting year for us, one marked by the opening of four additional offices—including our first international one in Melbourne, Australia. Our ranks have also more than doubled in size. This growth in exceptional talent positions us for opportunities to serve even more clients across a wide range of industries and geographies.
As we plan for the arrival of another new year, several members of our team are also actively researching how we can increase our support for organizations and professional groups who are making a difference in our communities. We look forward to sharing more about our work efforts—both in and out of the office—with you in 2017.
Cheers, and happy holidays from all of us at Levvel!
