MHM treats team members to daylong "skip day"

MHM treats team members to daylong “skip day”

I’ve got spirit, yes, I do… I’ve got spirit, how about you? Methodist Healthcare Ministries was full of spirit at the 2014 MHM Retreat also known as #MHMSkipDay.

Last Friday, team members were granted a “skip day” from work gathering together at the Main Event entertainment center for the annual MHM Retreat. The retreat provides an opportunity for the executive management team to share information about the current state of the business and offer insight into upcoming events. Tenured team members celebrating 5, 10 or 15 years with the organization were also honored for their service during an award ceremony. The main purpose of the retreat is to show gratitude for the dedication of each MHM team member and provide a time for fellowship.

There were a wide variety of activities to choose from, including laser tag, ropes course, arcade games, bingo, photo booth, bowling and billiards tournaments. “We wanted to show our appreciation for the staff and all they do in support of our mission throughout the year. The MHM Retreat is one way we recognize their contributions while also having a lot fun,” explained Oanh Maroney-Omitade, vice president of community health programs and organizational learning. The retreat was organized by MHM’s Ambassador Academy, a select group of team members participating in a one-year program that focuses on skill development and leadership opportunities.

A highlight of the day was the announcement of the executive management team awards. With titles such as “Miss Congeniality” and “Too Cool for School” these endearing awards had everyone guessing until the recipients’ names were read.

“I really enjoyed visiting with team members I don’t see on a daily basis. I’m thankful to work for an organization that cares deeply about our clients and also takes time to recognize its team members.” shared Susan Garcia, administrative assistant.
