MarineMax service team builds bikes for Florida families
The MarineMax service team while attending their National Service Managers meeting collaborated and worked as a team to build bikes for the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF). Seven deserving families in the community received the finished bikes.
“This years’ service meeting was a great experience for everyone involved, we got to help the community, meet new faces and collaborate with one another,” Andy Rishovd, National Service and Parts Manager said. “I look forward to this meeting every year and can’t wait to see the difference we can make next year as well.”
The National Service Managers meeting is an annual meeting for service managers to come together as a team to discuss company initiatives, collaborate, and work together for a good cause. This year there were about 70 managers in attendance. This year they worked together on coming up with goals for the upcoming year on their new initiative Labor Growth Plan tool that will be implemented at each store.
They choose to build bikes for DCF this year thanks to the Innisbrook Resort, which helped accommodate the event. The entire group was split into seven teams to see who could build their bike the fastest. Each team had to answer certain service questions correctly before they were given the proper tools to build their bikes.
Once finishing a speaker from DCF spoke to the group about the program and described the local families that will receive the bikes. DCF is a department in the local community that helps to protect the vulnerable, promote strong and economically self-sufficient families, and advance personal and family recovery.
