Tomorrow, millions of Mexicans and Americans on both sides of the border will gather in neighborhood bars, local restaurants and at friends’ houses to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. These celebrations honor the anniversary of an 1862 battle when the Mexican army- considered the underdog- defeated Napoleon III’s powerful French army. From the small yet popular block party in Atlanta’s Virginia Highlands neighborhood to the largest Cinco de Mayo street fair in the world that occurs annually in Los Angeles, celebrations in the United States seem to grow in size and spirit every year.
Companies can join the festivities with informal lunchtime barbecues designed to increase camaraderie amongst employees and managers. In fact, studies show that providing informal opportunities for employees to gather often results in increased motivation, innovative ideas and even more sales. So fire up the grill and start cooking! Just don’t forget to bring custom SmashWipes for an easy cleanup. Employees can wash their hands with these convenient washcloths in order to return to work mess-free, while also taking note of the imprinted logo.
