The Roscoe Company Hosts Another Successful Picnic

Jim Buik - Thursday, July 03, 2014

Every year, Roscoe the "Chicago Uniform Company" hosts a picnic for all our Team Members and their families at National Grove South. On Saturday, June 28th we had our 17th annual picnic filled with food, a clown, games, and a raffle where about 200 of our Team Members along with their family and friends came to celebrate another great year.

As the mat rental company is entering its 93rd year we want to do our utmost to recognize what makes Roscoe great; and that is our dedicated Team Members. The picnic is one way in which we reward and appreciate the effort and hard work our team puts forth throughout the year.

For the festivity, the uniform rental company had two men manning the grill, churning out mouth-watering burgers, hot dogs, sausages and bratwursts. Our lovely Team Members also brought side dishes and desserts to make the feast complete. The children played Simon Says, Red Light/Green Light and a very wet Water-Balloon Toss. A clown painted the kids’ faces as pirates and kitty cats and made wacky renditions of animals out of balloons. The adults brought out their competitive sides for a couple of intense rounds of Bingo. With the help from our friends at CMI they engaged in a game of Trolleys where they had to walk six players, all on the same planks of wood, across a field. Thankfully, everyone made it with their limbs intact.

Finally, the pièce de résistance: the raffle. A huge thanks in part to our vendors for donating gift cards, prizes and other donations. The kids were able to choose from a wide array of toys and electronics, as well as the adults. Everyone was able to walk away with something.

Through our partnerships with our vendors that provide the mat rental company outstanding products and services, we are able to stay focused on our goal of excellent customer satisfaction. With the support of our team and our vendors, we have experienced continued growth, have added new products and received a Net Promoter Score of 50% during our annual Customer Satisfaction Survey. That score defines a company as “World Class” on a number of different criteria.

So, thank you to our Team Members for your loyalty and dedication and another great year, our vendors for helping us show our appreciation and to everyone that came and helped out. The picnic is a wonderful way to show commitment, build camaraderie and connections, inspire gratitude, reward our team and their families, and see hundreds of smiling faces take pride in something they helped build.

The Chicago uniform company is already looking forward to next year!
