A few weeks back the SmartPayroll team heard a little rumour that something called the Rugby World Cup was coming to town. Outside our office, cars were starting to set our city abuzz with flags of varying nations bustling through the wind.
Well, not ones to be behind the eight ball we decided that we too will show our support and decorate our individual offices with the colours of the competing teams. With the Canadian maple leaf draped down the glass of one office, a collage of pictures of the Statue of Liberty hanging across a desk, it quickly started to look like a mishmash of the United Nations.
We haven’t just gone for all the big teams though, as just like with our business, we proudly help and support the smaller businesses in New Zealand to enable them to try and take on the big guns. In fact, the average SmartPayroll customer has less than 10 employees.
So even with the competition now in the knockout phases, and some of our team mementos now redundant, we’ve enjoyed getting into the spirit of things. And just quietly, of course we want the All Blacks to win.
By the way, if your company has got involved as well, post a comment below and tell us what your office looks like.
