“I had the opportunity to play on Golden Key’s first flag football team in the fall of 2011 when I first started with the society. This was an amazing bonding experience as a team and I got to know my co-workers so much better! Now having been on the championship team this spring 2015, I can say how proud I am to call these individuals co-workers and friends,” said Lenora. “I’m so thankful for this opportunity provided by Golden Key and feel so lucky to work for such a fun and talented group of individuals!”
Golden Key encourages employees to participate in fun team building activities outside the office, which not only allow colleagues to bond in a social setting, but it also improves company morale. Congrats to our winning team!
