At ExecuTeam Staffing, our team members are really good at their jobs, and they really enjoy being a team! Staffing is our business so having excellent team dynamics internally is incredibly important to us. One way our management fosters that team spirit is to make sure the whole team feels invited and included in our office celebrations of our successes and achievements.
As a result, our team enjoys our office celebrations and the food that comes with it! In order to include the whole team (and to fend off the boredom of the same old treats), our team often looks to the non-traditional treats rather than having cake for every celebration. Our team would like to share with you our favorite Non-Traditional Celebratory Office Treats and where to get them in Houston.

We enjoyed talking about our favorite treats in the office this week, and it even made us realize how unique we are as a team. We hope that our favorite treats have sparked some ideas among your team. Particularly with the holidays coming up, it is important for managers and team members alike to begin to think about making those office celebrations a little more inclusive for everyone. Next week’s blog will offer more ideas on building that great team dynamic.
