At Distributor Wire & Cable (DWC), we pride ourselves on our unique company culture. Part of that culture stems from the fun things we provide to the DWC Family within our Denver HQ office. From the moment you enter the building, there is a surprise around every corner.
When you walk through the front doors, you will be greeted by our account managers in the sales pit. In the middle of the sales pit is our beloved ping pong table. Expect to hear some smack talk during a match when there’s some down time.
“It’s a great way to blow off a little steam. It gets all departments involved and everyone has a good time,” says Account Manager, Joe Von Kennel.
Back in October, we had a ping pong tournament where all of the departments played against each other. The reigning champion is our CFO, Mark McAninch. We’ll see how he does this year.
Just around the corner from the sales pit, you will walk through our copy room into the area known as The Den. Every Thursday, everyone is welcome to meet up in The Den for a yoga or workout session. You can usually find our People Development Manager, Laura Kitto, and our Marketing & Brand Director, Tina Thorpe, getting everything setup before the workout begins. We have yoga mats, weights and workout videos, which feature the lovely Jillian Michaels. She scares us sometimes.
Next to The Den is our kitchen that is stocked with fresh food. Twice a month, we make a trip to the grocery store to get all the necessities. One of DWC’s values is to Live Healthy. We fulfill that value by providing healthy food for our family members. The hardest things to keep on the shelves are the breakfast bars, bananas and all the fixings for a tasty sandwich. Another important component to our kitchen is our coffee maker. We go through K-Cups like they’re going out of style. Don’t worry, we recycle.
Our last stop is the conference room, located on the other side of our building. We hold a lot of our meetings, as well as some team building activities there. It’s a large room with a long, rectangular table in the center with plenty of seating. There is also a projector and screen. We utilize these in our meetings to develop strategies and video chat with remote family members in our Cable Distribution Centers across the country. For occasional Friday fun, we use this room for movies and even video games!
Our doors are always open and we love to show off our office. Be sure to challenge us to a game of ping pong next time you’re in our neck of the woods!
