Purple Shirt Thursday!

Purple Shirt Thursdays began back in the office when the Sales Team and Executives would wear purple on Thursdays, hence creating Purple Shirt Thursday! Now, working remotely, a few of our employees still wear purple to this day, and we always get a good laugh about it. Moving forward, we would love for both companies to participate in Purple Shirt Thursdays! This is a fun and motivating day to look forward to each week, as well as helping us to feel more connected while working from home! If you want to be featured on your respective company’s social media repping #PurpleShirtThursday, send your best snapshot to!
