ETA hand2mind - 2014 National Sales Meeting

Our ETA hand2mind national sales force gathered earlier this month in San Antonio to further strengthen their ability to be even better partners with our valued customers. Interactive and guided by our very own subject matter experts, our consultants got hands on with our products, shared best practices, and learned even more about how ETA hand2mind helps teachers and students succeed. We provide solutions to educators that our sales team understands!  Below are some pictures taken over the course of several days. Everyone worked hard and gained much. One of our team members said it was the best sales meeting yet!

Our employees enjoy a great workout without even leaving the office.

One of the many perks of working for the Fairway Talent family of companies is access to a nicely equipped workout facility and basketball court right on site. Employees can easily fit in a full workout before or after work or even during a break from the busy work day.  Locker rooms allow employees to get back to work-ready shape.  In the pictures below, a couple members of our IT team take a break from supporting our five companies to lift something other than computers.

The Gift of Learning Kept Giving!

Our family of companies was very excited to organize a toy drive for a local elementary school as part of our Gift of Learning event.  As a company, we were able to provide over 200 gifts to a school of deserving kids.  The teachers were very excited as well, and could not wait to sort the gifts by grade level in order to best fill the holiday wishes for the students.  The generosity of our team members brightened the holidays for all!
