Our annual New Year Kick Off (NYKO) remains one of the most thrilling and awaited events that ForeFront hosts each year. A festive filled week of strategy, alignment and Team-building activities allow us to celebrate our client successes, while focusing on our business growth goals.
We began the week with the arrival of Team members from across the globe, reuniting at our headquarters in Fair Haven, NJ. Gathered in our newly renovated 810 House, we filled our workspaces, conference rooms and common areas with inspired discussions, ending each day with good spirits, a great sense of community and a lot of laughs.
Marking our 2020 vision as “Discover Tomorrow,” meetings and collaboration commenced with highlights and lessons learned in 2019. With wise words delivered from our leadership team, the path to another year of profit and growth was set in motion. Experiencing true Esprit de Corps as we ended day one, we teed up at Top Golf to drive togetherness and aim for fun!
The following day brought workshops, interactive presentations and game planning. The focus of this being on how we can continue to accelerate our excellence across our Pillars (B2B Commerce, Quote to Cash, and Asset Lifecycle Management), while remaining focused on our vertical expertise (High Tech Software & Manufacturing and Healthcare & Life Science). Dividing up in multiple sessions, each group was able to brainstorm and strategize on communication, efficiency and best practices. These sessions allow us to align department goals with the overall business goal of remaining at the ForeFront of digital transformation.
Day two also brought something new to ForeFront, a Hypnotist Comedy Show. To start, our host worked with our brave volunteers to set a deep relaxation. What followed were some truly silly antics. There was air guitar, horse racing and speaking other languages, just to name a few. To end the day, we convened for a rewarding dinner to celebrate our Team for their continued hard-work and achievements.
We wrapped up this year’s Kick Off with our own version of Netflix’s hit series “Nailed It!” where the Team was tasked to recreate various art pieces from around our campus using craft materials. Being that our HQ is rich in art and culture, we had a blast revealing our own creative twist and wacky results to the rest of the Team and a distinguished panel of judges.
With our sights set on discovering what tomorrow will bring for ForeFront, we do not leave our efforts in the past. 2020 will be a year full of new challenges, but also a year full of growth and continuing to live our DRIVEN culture. With our proven record of industry insights and technologic capabilities, we look forward to navigating our clients through their digital transformation journey.
