Expedite Day

Six Feet Up is looking forward to its 7th quarterly "Expedite Day", an event when employees work in complete autonomy on a project of their choice and have 24 hours to present a complete deliverable to the rest of the team.

"Expedite Day" is Six Feet Up's new name for our quarterly events formally known as "FedEx Days". This is in response to FedEx's request to stop leveraging their name to refer to this popular morale, creativity, and productivity boosting event. The name "Expedite Day" was chosen because the focus and autonomy, promoted by the format of this event, allow projects to get accomplished more quickly, and ultimately propel the company forward faster.

During "Expedite Day", the entire team is encouraged (but not required) to participate. Oftentimes team members who normally work remotely fly in for the event.

At our latest event, Six Feet Up teamed up with Roche Diagnostics' North American headquarters in Indianapolis and held an "Innovation Day" together. Roche saw the collaboration as an opportunity to learn about fostering a culture of innovation from a smaller, more nimble organization.

Altogether, the Six Feet Up team has successfully completed more than 60 projects.

For more information on "Expedite Day", or to request an invitation to participate in our event, please contact Carol Ganz.
