Who: Stax employees from our Boston, Chicago, New York, and Colombo, Sri Lanka offices
What: Stax 2020 Offsite – Miami Beach
When: February 23-25, 2020
Where: Eden Roc Hotel, Miami Beach
Why: Over 80 of our colleagues gathered at the Eden Roc Hotel in Miami Beach this past week for the Stax 2020 Offsite, Miami Beach Edition. With such a large number of new hires across all our offices in 2019, the offsite began with a brief history of Stax Inc. and how we got to where we are today. After articulating both our unique client and people value propositions, we focused on our 2022 firm goals and strategy. Breakout sessions allowed for teams to brainstorm ideas around seven key themes and then present their recommendations to the overall group. Under the umbrella of #StaxGives, we showcased how each of us contribute to social impact at both the firm and local levels, highlighting both employee-driven activities in each office (Dress for Success, The Ronald McDonald House, Greater Somerville Homeless Coalition, United Way, The Opportunity Network, Sri Lanka Unites, Fusion, and many more) and some of our unique client work that provides direct-social impact. In the evening, we let it “roll” at Nobu Miami and enjoyed the most amazing tasting menu. We concluded the offsite with some Beach Olympics, where each team had to come up with a fun name, song, and dance and competed in a myriad of challenging team activities. Everyone was a winner having the opportunity to escape the winter chills, maybe the humidity in Colombo, and making some fun, long-lasting memories together in Miami.
