Boat Day

Written By:  Lilly Liang

Performance Point, a full-service energy efficiency contractor in the Carolinas, has been an industry leader for 10 years now. In the past couple of years, we’ve had tremendous growth with clients and employees.

Today, we have over 30 employees including field and office staff. We will likely hire more field raters early next year as we continue to grow.  We know it’s important to provide a sense of community within our team – both in the field and the office. For a team bonding event, Susie Redfearn planned our 3rd annual Boat Day . As the Single-Family Account Rep, I was able to join a boat day and get insight on what our team members thought.

Team events are important especially since our field inspectors do not see each other every day. “That’s why getting all of our team members together is so vitally important to the strength of our company. The administration team at Performance Point prides itself on its efforts to provide team building activities for its staff,” says Jeremy Price, Charlotte Regional Manager.

Jeremy has been on the team for over 5 years and offered his boat for our team outing. Thanks to our scheduling team, aka Marcus Byrd, we were able to get the raters’ schedule to fit a Boat Day and still serve our clients. During my Boat Day, I had the chance to ask Jeremey his thoughts on the Boat Day. “The time together, and the conversations among the group were remarkable! I know that I speak for everyone in saying, I cannot wait for our next team building excursion,” he said with a grin on his face.

“Socializing and making friends at work is one of the best ways to increase productivity, communication, and transparency” states Susie, Manager of Strategic Initiatives. She did a great job coordinating the event.  She strategically grouped everyone by location, picked dates that worked well for everyone, and took lead on keeping the team on the same page with details regarding the event.

When I asked the field team their opinions about working at Performance Point; it was a consensus that the flexible hours are their favorite part! “I love the flexible scheduling” said Rodrigo who was recently promoted to Raleigh Regional Manager. Matt Jackson recently joined the team two months ago. He’s already in the field on his own and says he’s always doing something different. In the video below, you can also see a live testimony from Rodrigo and Matt.

For a glimpse into our Boat Day adventures, check out the video below. It’s only one minute long. Thank you to everyone for their hard work and hope you all had a great time cruising on Boat Day 2018.
