Football season is almost here! Here at Quickscrews, we are big football fans. Our weekly office Pick ‘Em Pool has become an annual tradition. It is free to play for our employees and each week the winner receives $25, and of course the grand winner receives even more. Last year, our Purchasing Manager Mitch beat out Warehouse Manager Chris by 1 point for the season total. Many Quickscrews members also play fantasy football. Our CEO Greg Wiener recently discovered fantasy football and won his league last year-- while his son, VP Marketing Jared, came in last place in the same league. Clearly, he still has much to learn from his father.
Each week at our Daily 8:45am morning meeting called the SCRUM, we announce the winner, along with answering the weekly SCRUM question. Sometimes the question is fun, sometimes more serious; team members are encouraged to participate no matter their opinion. It is a great way to bond and get to know each other on a personal level.
This week our question was more socially focused, regarding former 49er Quarterback Colin Kaepernick remaining unsigned in the NFL. It raised a lively discussion amongst our staff and allowed us to garner respect for each other’s differences in opinions and thought we should extend the question to YOU!
“Do you believe Kaepernick hasn’t been signed because of his activism on and off the field? Will you boycott the NFL because of the Kaepernick’s situation?”
