Screaming for Ice Cream

We like to surprise our employees, and a cold treat on a hot day seemed like the perfect way! In Dublin, as we're experiencing the hottest summer in 40 years, we treated the office to a mid-day ice cream sundae bar. And in our Bala headquarters, we ended the day with Mister Softee trucks for popsicles and soft serve ice cream.

Tiki Time!

We never shy away from a theme party in our Sydney office. Our Mid-Year Party, complete with a tiki theme, was held in King Street Wharf and featured canapes, mocktails + drinks, and tiki touches around every corner. Our employees impressed with their ensembles, as usual!

SIG Knocks it Out of the Ballpark

Our annual Night at the Ballpark is a SIG summer staple! 700+ SIG employees had a great night out at Citizens Bank Park cheering on the Philadelphia Phillies. We were treated to a buffet of our favorite ballpark foods and drinks, plus loaded tickets to pick up any favorites around the stadium. We even got to see our Head of Operations throw out the first pitch!

Riding in Style

SIG cyclists participated in Bike to Work Day

Since the official Bike to Work Day was a wash out in our area this year, we welcomed our SIG cyclists to work the following Monday with Bai Waters and Naked juices. We loved seeing SIG’s bike rack packed with lots of happy cyclists!

The Dublin Office Takes Home the Crown

Our annual No Limit Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament kicked off at our offices around the globe this past February. After months of fierce competition, our 18 finalists converged at our Bala HQ. To give our players a chance to get to know each other before the big day, we hosted a welcome dinner at The Logan, filled with delicious food, drinks, and great city views. The next day, players battled it out at the Final Table to see who would take home the $15k grand prize. Congratulations to Kevin, who is bringing home the 1st place title to Dublin for the first time since 2011!

Holidays at SIG

Our holiday gatherings are a great way for us to celebrate the season and thank our employees for another successful year! In Sydney, we spent the night at the Steel Bar & Grill in the CBD and enjoyed delicious canapes (including gold dusted macarons!), a DJ and dancing, and a fun photo booth. In Chicago, our office holiday outing took place at SPiN Chicago, an 18,000 sq. foot "ping pong social club" in River North. In New York, we returned to Pier A, a designated New York City landmark with great views. Our Bala Holiday Party took place at the Crystal Tea Room, where we enjoyed arcade games, dancing, and special treats like a Krispy Kreme donut wall and late-night cheesesteaks. And in Dublin, as our final celebration of SIG's 30th anniversary, our party threw it back to 1987. We treated our employees to a night of glitzy 80s fun, complete with everyone's favourite retro arcade games.

Giving Back Around the World

Around the holiday season, our employees make an impact in their local communities through charitable organizations. Our Dublin office supported the SVP - Society of St. Vincent de Paul Ireland Giving Tree to help families in need. In Sydney, our employees provided personalized gifts for local children, ages 2-18, through The Salvation Army's Christmas Appeal. Our Chicago office spread holiday cheer with their participation in The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program, sponsoring 100 Angel Tree gift tags to surprise local Chicago children on Christmas morning. Our New York office dished out love to their fellow New Yorkers with contributions to City Harvest, the city's largest food drive. And in Bala Cynwyd, our office participated in Bryn Mawr Hospital's Adopt A Family Program, "adopting" 17 local families in need, fulfilling some of their basic needs (like laundry supplies and grocery gift cards) and gifting some holiday wishes (like sneakers, toys, bikes, and even a desk!).
