A Fishing-Themed Catch Me Launch “Catches” Everyone’s Attention.

Hillary Johnson,
Embassy Suites Detroit – Livonia/Novi, MI

This year, we rolled out Catch Me with a fishing party. The GM and HR director dressed up in fisherman outfits, and we had a “Finding Nemo” cake and lots of fish decorations. We even brought in plastic fishing poles and fish to try to hook. We announced fish-themed contests: “Big Fish” awards for the monthly Catch Me leader. “Catch Of The Day” is the Manager’s nomination for someone who makes a big difference. “Lucky Fish” is our random prize drawing from all Catch Me cards. And “Finding Nemo” is a random drawing for associates who were caught by a co-worker — both the associate and the co-worker won. In all, we introduced enough twists so that we awarded six team members each month instead of just a couple. The entire team is excited that there are so many ways to win!
