â€œI feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes, Love is all around me, and so the feelings grows!â€
These two lines of the cheesy 90’s pop tune perfectly describe the feeling at Verve Search HQ last week. It was the return of LOVE WEEK, a chance for the whole office to express how they feel about one another through the medium of being SECRET ANGELS!
Every employee in the company (including the CEO) has their name put into a bowl and one at a time names are drawn. The name you draw is the person you will be a secret angel to for the week. The key to a successful love week is keeping your guise as secret angel – a secret.
You don’t have to spend lots of money on fancy-schmancy gifts, anonymous emails and little love notes are often the best love week gifts. This love week was even bigger and better than before, with object of affection ranging from flowers to beer to LP’s and Unicorn Poop!
Marcelle, our very lovely Project Co-Ordinator, gave this nice quote about love week: â€œLove week is great not just because you get presents or material gifts, but because people really go through such effort to learn more about you and what you LOVE! That looks different for everybody but it means that by the end of the week, you’ve got to know your co-worker a lot better”
A few years ago, Verve Search were inspired by the clever folks at Mindvalley to encourage love to be part of â€œeveryone’s job description for five daysâ€. Verve been doing love week every quarter since, and it has become a fond tradition here at Verve Search. â™¥
