Last Wednesday was just Wednesday to most, but to Simply Hired employees, it was Diwali - the Indian Festival of lights.
Simply Hired, which holds a presence is 24 countries, was all a buzz with excitement over the festivities. As you walked down the hallways of our office, one could see traditional rangoli flowers adorning the floors as well as cubicle walls outlined with strings of light to capture the true spirit of the holiday. In the kitchen, beautiful saris and kurtas were seen billowing about making coffee and toasting bagels.
After an amazing Indian food lunch, employees took to the runway to get their bhangra on and strut their stuff at a Diwali fashion show. Many laughs (and of course beautiful attire) were had. The event ended with an in-office Bollywood dancing lesson. If you've ever had the opportunity to see a dozen of your coworkers learn to dance in the middle of the hallway, you know its quite a site to see!
After a full day of festivities and celebration, Simply Hired closed the lid on Diwali and is getting ready for our next event - the elusive Simply Hired Halloween party TODAY!
