Celebrating the Workforce – Cymbal Maker #1in100MM

In the finale episode of “1 in One Hundred Million,” see how Paul found his rhythm as a cymbal maker to the stars:

Like many musicians, Paul was waiting for his big break. When it didn’t come quick enough, his parents urged him to get a day job – so he headed to Zildjian Cymbals to put his passion to work. His first day on the job wasn’t exactly a dream come true, though – “the first day,” he recalls, “I literally swept the factory floor.”

Fast forward 28 years to today, and Paul knows cymbal-making inside out. He creates cymbals that bring the world’s top drummers’ distinctive sounds to life – in fact, he’s something of a cymbal-maker to the stars: Journey’s Steve Smith, Aerosmith’s Joey Kramer, Santana’s Dennis Chambers, and hundreds more top artists swear by his cymbals.

Kronos’ Annual Employee Appreciation Picnic

Today, Kronos held our annual Employee Appreciation Picnic at our headquarters in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. Every summer, this event is a fun and much anticipated way for Kronites to come together, eat delicious food, play games, and simply hang out outside of the office. The location also couldn’t be more convenient: the picnic is held right in our building’s back parking lot!

This year’s event featured food trucks (Taco Party and Captain Marden’s), Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, lawn games, a mechanical bull, and some incredible raffle prizes – including gift cards to the spa, Lowe’s, and Starbucks, as well as Oakley and Tiffany sunglasses, an Amazon Echo, a Nutri Ninja Blender, a Callaway Golf Bag, a FitBit, and a yoga set.

This yearly event helps to not only bring Kronites together to have a good time, but also serves as an important reminder about how much their hard work is appreciated. The event is also during work hours, allowing Kronites to not miss time at home with their families.

Kronos offers their employees a breadth of healthy living benefits, and the activities at our annual picnic only echo our commitment to health and wellness. A basketball tournament, corn hole, and football were just a few of the games that helped to encourage employees to get out of their seats and be active. The raffle prizes we gave away also inspire a healthy, fun lifestyle.

Kronos 5K – Fueled by Inspiration

Last Thursday, Kronos held its second annual 5K walk/run in Chelmsford, Massachusetts (home to our headquarters). Participation was complimentary and open to all Kronos employees and their families.

Our now-annual 5K is a great way to get Kronites outside and active together – whether you’re an experienced runner or you’d just prefer to walk the 3.1-mile loop.

Leading up to the event, we held a Desk to 5K program for anyone who wanted to get fully prepared for the race. (It’s Kronos’ version of the popular Couch to 5K program). In addition to engaging employees, this program also successfully increased participants’ endurance for race day.

Although the 5K is a great incentive to get Kronites active and engaged, we’re lucky that it’s only one element to Kronos’ breadth of healthy living benefits. From our on-site, fully-equipped gyms to the Quit for Life program to Weight Watchers discounts (to name a few), Kronites throughout the world are constantly encouraged to live healthy, happy lives – inside and outside of work. (To see all the photos from this year’s 5K, visit Kronos’ Facebook page).

What are your tips for staying healthy – and active – inside and outside of work?
