It’s that time of year again when nostalgia is king, chrome rules and hot cars are rumbling in the streets. Hot August Nights is THE classic car event hosting tens of thousands of visitors in northern Nevada. With all the excitement and interest generated and so many of our residents volunteering during the event, what a great opportunity to host a HAN Employee Day.
Pick a day during the week – Friday’s are always good – and welcome your staff to dress like its 1972 or older (the HAN car registration criteria). 1950’s attire is always popular. If anyone in the company has a classic car not registered in HAN, invite them to park in the company’s parking area in front of your building for a mini show and shine. Bring in burgers, fries and Coca-Cola for lunch, turn on some rock and roll and let your employees know how much you appreciate how they “show and shine” for the business.
If you need a tip on where to find men and women’s vintage fashions, try the locally owned Junkee Clothing Exchange. Owners Jessica and Troy Schneider have been in business five years as of May 2013. The recycled clothing and affordable antiques cover all types of costumes and centuries with a large focus on the 1920’s – 1990’s. Plan on spending lots of time going through the treasures located at 960 S. Virginia Street, Reno, Nevada, (775) 322-5865.
A Hot August Nights Employee Day is just one more way to make your establishment a great place to work by providing an opportunity for employees to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
