Working at PlattForm is … SWEET!
About a year ago – around the time Charlie and the Chocolate Factory came out in theaters – Michael Platt had what many PlattFormers consider to be his BEST IDEA EVER. Buy a bunch of candy. Put it in a wagon. Wheel the candy around to the masses. And then watch the fun unfold.
It has since come to be known as SWEET TOOTH TUESDAY. And it was a brilliant stroke of genius! Get your employees hopped up on sugar and they are apt to work harder … or something like that. Sweet Tooth Tuesday has been both a blessing and a curse. On any given Tuesday afternoon after the Candy Wagon has moseyed through -- hyperactivity begins to run amok in the building. People begin talking faster … typing faster … breathing faster. Small riots have practically broken out over who gets the last Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
The best part is watching the newbies at PlattForm try and fend off the older, stronger candymongers. It’s really survival of the fittest on Sweet Tooth Tuesday. Wait – check that – after a year of gorging myself on Twix bars – it’s really survival of the fattest. It’s funny … I can’t remember life before Sweet Tooth Tuesday – but, I’ll tell you this much, if Michael Platt ever takes it away from us … there will be anarchy.
