Hilldrup Stafford’s Mystery Box Challenge & Scavenger Hunt

To get into the Halloween spirit, Hilldrup Stafford employees were invited to participate in a Mystery Box Challenge and Scavenger Hunt. The spooky twist on these team-bonding activities put our communication skills to the test while having fun!

For the Mystery Box Challenge, participating employees were each assigned to a team and one person was chosen to put their hand into the “mystery box.” Based on what they felt from within the mystery box, the employee described the item to the rest of their team. Employees worked together in order to correctly guess the item inside. From “fingers” (sausages) to a “brain” (Jell-O), there were plenty of squirms and gasps as our team worked through the challenge. The team who guessed the most mystery items correctly in the least amount of time was the winner!

With a record time of only 2 minutes and 56 seconds, congratulations to our winning team comprised of Mary Kay Young, Sr. Bill & Revenue Analyst; Katie Murray, A/R Credit Analyst; Rebecca Grimes, NA Audit Bill & Revenue Analyst; Connie McGrath, Vice President, Finance; Chrissy King, Manager, Customer Service and Melissa Barker, Administrative Assistant!

Later this month, Stafford employees were encouraged to participate in a Scavenger Hunt taking place both within and outside of the office. From rummaging through the kitchen fridge to across the parking lot, the competition was taken very seriously! Employees worked together to solve clues as they made their way throughout the building and around the property. Congratulations to Team Green who completed the Scavenger Hunt in only 7 minutes and 55 seconds! The team included Erin Davis, Move Coordinator; Bridget Geiger, Corporate Communications Writer; Deanna Thomas, Bill & Revenue Analyst; Lisa Culver, Bill & Revenue Analyst; Robin Allison Jones, Billing Supervisor and Jessica Facciolo, Customer Care Representative!

We appreciate everyone who participated in the fun and special thanks to our Claims Department for putting so much creativity and planning into these fun activities for our team to enjoy!
