Salt Lake Corporate Games 2016

Our Dell EMC Utah team members recently finished another round of the Salt Lake County Corporate Games. As usual, it was amazing! Not only did we have fun, but we made a huge impact on the community. Here are some of the details . . .

76 other companies participated this summer. Dell EMC was in 20 events, with a total of 148 team members. Our events ranged from Trivia to Trap Shoot, and Softball to Scavenger Hunts.

The opening ceremonies had a 1980’s theme, so we used a team member's Golf hole from our recent Office Mini Golf Classic. The hole was based on Caddyshack, complete with a dancing gofer.

  • We won a total of 8 medals taking 5th Overall
  • We took 3rd overall in Most Volunteers
  • I'm most proud of receiving the Heart & Soul award for the 2nd year in a row, thanks to the generous contributions of our employees gave food, blood and money    
    • We raised a total of $6,160  
    • We donated 944 pounds of food to the Utah food bank, enough to provide 24,862 meals or feed 69 families of 4 for 1 month.
    • We also gave 127 units of blood, which is enough to save 381 lives

There are many benefits to participating in the Salt Lake Corporate Games:

  • Keeping our team members healthy & active 
  • Promoting team member morale & camaraderie
  • Providing a competitive, yet safe environment where we can encourage each other & work as a team
  • Brain or brawn, there is something for everyone . . . players, volunteers, spectators & cheerleaders are warmly welcomed
We're looking forward the Winter games and repeating it all again in 2017! Also, see my post about our 2015 participation
