What's the Big Idea about a Holiday Party?

‘Tis the season for giving. At Jovian Concepts, the holiday party is a chance for the company to present employees with a celebration of the year we’ve shared. Inspired by the spirit of Mr. Fezziwig’s yearly parties in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, employees and their guests are treated to a hotel room, transportation, and an evening full of good friends and good food. “This party is for the employees,” says CEO Rich Scheper, our own Mr. Fezziwig. “I want them to have a good time and be happy.”

The original Jovian Concepts holiday parties took place in the home of Rich and Stacey Scheper, an extension of the family atmosphere that is a key part of the company culture. As Jovian Concepts grew, the parties moved to various iconic locations in the Schepers' hometown of Baltimore, such as the B&O Railroad Museum-- not quite the Schepers’ home, but their hometown nonetheless.

One of two yearly gatherings that include the entire company and their significant others, the holiday party is a chance to socialize just for the sake of socializing. Is there room in our busy lives for that? We think so. Charles Dickens seemed to think so, too. Eating and dancing and catching up with people we know is what makes life sweet--which is exactly the kind of Big Idea we cherish at Jovian Concepts.
