Professional Placement Resources sources, screens, recruits, and selects professionals for a variety of positions. After the CEO is finished meeting with new hires, leading workouts on the beach and conducting the Monday "8:31 meetings" (often held sea-side), he designates certain Thursdays as "Thank you Thursdays," asking employees to send a specific number of thank you cards to co-workers and customers. Events during the annual employee appreciation month range from contests to potluck parties, and the company loves to line up employees for a good game of  "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?," awarding them with gift cards for identifying states by shape and constructing sand sculptures. "Bingo" rings out over the intercom after the company distributes bingo cards and sends numbers to employees via email throughout the day, awarding the winners with prizes.

Employees and their and children prepare for the Mud Run charity fundraiser.
