Congratulations to Nashville, TN-based supplier The Imagery Group for winning this year’s second annual Office Halloween Contest! With a video that truly blew away the judges, “Your Brains” is a hilarious and creative take on the enormously popular zombie horror genre, complete with great special effects and performances all within an office setting! Check out the video here, or just click the video below. (See their extensive photo gallery too!)
Thanks for all the submissions this year! You guys really raised the bar and made our decisions difficult. For all this year’s submissions, check out the Best Places to Work Facebook page.
Have holiday parties planned in the coming weeks? Keep the fun, office-based submissions coming, and make our www.facebook.com/bestplacestowork page the place to go for an industry workplace community.

When my colleage Andy Cohen and I set out to find the best holiday office party pics and videos in the industry last month, we had no idea what we’d receive. Coming off a very successful Halloween party contest in which our Best Places to Work Facebook community stepped it up and sent in dozens of great photos and videos, we were totally expecting the goods, but didn’t really think anyone could raise the bar.
Boy, were we wrong.
Distributor Signet, Inc. (asi/326636) not only raised the bar with their holiday frozen turkey bowling tourney, they set a new standard in employee fun! And for their efforts, they win this year’s Counselor Best Places to Work holiday contest and a cool $100!
And for the record, here are some of my fave pics … enjoy! And congrats Signet!

Congratulations to distributor firm CustomInk, winner of the first-ever online competition honoring the best Halloween party in the industry.
In October, my good pal and Counselor Editor Andy Cohen encouraged industry companies to submit their stories, photos and videos to our Best Places to Work Facebook page describing why their office Halloween party was the wackiest, most entertaining and most creative this year. The spoils? A $100 gift card.
And, wow, did we ever get some great submissions!
Sifting through tons of great Halloween content, Andy and I finally decided that CustomInk simply rocked Halloween harder than any other company, with employees dressing up in costumes ranging from the cast of Glee and Jersey Shore, to pop culture icons like Michael Phelps, John Oates (from Hall & Oates), Uncle Eddie from Vacation, Rosie the Riveter and many more. Congrats, CustomInk!
And enjoy some of our favorite images, below.
