Our Advantage is Our People

Heart Walk, barbecue and WVU!

On Saturday Sept 29th, Advantage Technology participated in the American Heart Association's Charleston Heart walk! Following the walk, we enjoyed a barbecue and watched the WVU game.

The Heart Walk began at the Capitol Complex. From there, participants walked down Kanawha Boulevard to the turnaround right in front of our office building at 950 Kanawha Blvd. We had a live band, The Harper Project, balloons, selfie frames and a small gift for all participants!

The 4th Annual Picnic on Cinco de Mayo

Last year we had our company picnic in July, and our first picnic was in August. The problem with that time of year is that it’s hot. Very hot! So this year, we thought we’d have our 4th Annual Picnic in May, and Cinco de Mayo gave us the perfect theme.

The 2018 Weight Loss Competition

Starting in January, the entire Advantage Technology team began our Weight Loss Competition. And this is not just for mere bragging rights; cash prizes were offered to everyone who lost a certain amount of weight. We started off by dividing into teams of four with a total of twelve teams. After the initial weigh-in, we struggled to lose every ounce until finally, twelve weeks later, we had the official weigh-in. The team to lose the most percentage of weight got to walk home with a cool $500 each!

Bowling Night 2017

Friday night was bowling night for Advantage Technology! The Advantage Technology crew met up at Venture Lanes in St. Albans  and bowled until they kicked us out.

One thing we’re constantly grateful for is the fact we all get along so well and enjoy each other’s company. When we say that Our Advantage Is Our People, we're talking about more than just our expertise. We’re talking about the fact that we all get along great and really enjoy working together.

The 3rd Annual Advantage Technology Picnic

Even though last year’s big day was in the office, I’m still counting it as a company picnic. And that makes July 22nd our third company picnic. This one was held at Coonskin Park with a big playground and lots of room for the kids to play. We’ve got some new faces since our first picnic, and lots of familiar ones.

Women and Technology Conference
Women and Technology

Advantage Technology was pleased to have almost all of our incredible women attend the Charleston Area Alliance Elevations Professional Women’s Luncheon on June 26th at Embassy Suites, as part of the greater Women & Technology conference hosted by TechConnectWV. As the room was filling, I reflected upon the solid representation of women at our company and the contrast with industry standards. We all have a unique history and serve vastly different, but crucial roles at Advantage Technology.

Advantage Technology’s First Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

On Friday, May 5th, Advantage Technology held its very first Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, complete with about 100 tacos! The fiesta began around noon when the catering company, Tastefully Dun, arrived to begin setting up the amazing Mexican cuisine. There were so many tacos that the caterers had to set up the spread in the hallway of the third floor!
