Chemicals are everywhere, and it can be challenging to be the cool kid.
Here are six tips to be as cool as possible in your next work meeting.
article Chemists at Sigma Chemical Industries (Sigma), one of the nation’s largest chemical companies, were recently asked to participate in a new social media campaign by their boss, Dr. James Pritchard.
Pritchard is the head of the company’s Chemical Safety Research and Development Department and is also CEO of Sigma Chemical.
During a recent presentation at the US Chemical Safety Board’s annual conference in Washington, DC, Pritchart said that he wanted to make the meeting atmosphere more social, in hopes that social media would help him achieve that goal.
In response, attendees at the meeting shared a variety of ways to get involved in the event.
Among them:Organize a group of friends to sit together to drink wine together, play a game of ping-pong and play a video game together.
The group will share stories and ask questions.
The winners will be invited to attend a dinner party where they can enjoy a cocktail together and socialize with other attendees.
In the spirit of the “Cool Kids Rule,” the group will then go to the office to pick out an award for the best presentation.
Then the team will make presentations to attendees, share information about the awards, and then the team has the chance to win.
Pritchchard explained that while social media is important for corporate employees, it is especially important for professionals.
He explained that the company has experienced a decrease in the number of employees taking the company social media initiative.
He noted that he has noticed that he and his team are now the ones having the most social interactions during the day.
While this isn’t the first time Sigma Chemical has organized social media events, Pritchchard said the event was different because it was specifically designed to promote the company.
He said that this campaign will continue to be held at meetings, and he plans to have a website up by the end of the year that will feature information about what the company is up to and how to join the fun.
