Rushton & Company Gets Special Visitor for Tax Season
Tax season means long hours for the Rushton Team, so it is important to have a little fun during this demanding time of year. During tax season the firm provides weekly “treats” for the staff to make the long hours bearable. We have ice cream and pizza parties, team Pictionary, restaurant gift card giveaways, along with daily snack and fruit trays. Our team got a big surprise when one of the famous Chick-fil-A® cows went office-to-office inviting staff to our conference room for hand-spun Chick-fil-A® milkshakes.
