The costumes are creative.

Halloween at BlueGrace Logistics has always been one of the most anticipated culture events, and this year was no exception. Our employees were beyond creative with their costumes this year. From Beer-Fit Barbie and Ryan Lochte to the cast of Scooby Doo and Mr. Robot, BlueGracers went all out.

The decorations are spooky.

The BOOGrace transformation begins the first week of October with a few spider webs and gradually grows into something that mirrors a haunted house. In previous years, BOOGrace has been decked out with fake bodies, graves, flying ghosts and asylyms throughout. This year we opened it up to kids and families and decided on a “scary movie” theme that allowed for all ages of trick-or-treaters. Certain departments were designated as ‘Kid Friendly’ with Wizard of Oz and the Nightmare Before Christmas decor and others were not so kid friendly with evil clowns and deadly sharks.

BlueGrace Transforms Into BOOGrace16

Culture is something we have written about before. This is a part of the company we spend a lot of time and resources on and keeping our employees happy is part of our appeal.

“BOOGrace is basically one big, employee appreciation day,” said Courtney Smith, Culture and Engagement Manager of BlueGrace Logistics.

It’s easy to see why BlueGrace is so successful. The employees love what they do because they work in a place they love. They work hard because they’re allowed to enjoy being at work, making every day simply unpredictable! BOOGrace 2016 was a huge success, as it has been in previous years and we are already looking forward to BOOGrace 2017.

“This year was crazy, simply because of the amount of new hires we have. Half of our Tampa office hasn’t ever participated in a “Corporate Halloween” quite like BOOGrace before,” said Whitney McKay, Marketing & Brand Manager of BlueGrace Logistics.

BOOGrace16 Video Contest
