Grand Prize Premier – Harmons Associate “We’re Not Normal” Videos

August 9, 2013

There were more than a dozen interesting entries from associates who showed they have very creative minds and lots of talent in response to the first Harmons Associate Video Contest. When it came to expressing their interpretation of “We’re Not Normal, We’re Harmons” through videos and photo essays, these associates definitely each had their own styles and perspective on the topics they chose to highlight. Congratulations again, and thank you, to all of the associates who participated in the first (hopefully annual) associate video contest.

The past couple days we have been sharing with you the six first place videos. Today we premier the grand prize winning video . . . Holly M. from Harmons St. George takes us on a tour of the store and shares her thoughts on working at Harmons and what it means to say, “We’re not normal, we’re Harmons.”

You’re Awesome! Thanks for helping us fight MS!

August 8, 2013

Our customers are truly amazing! We’ve always known that is true, but you keep raising the bar each year. Your generous donations this year helped us give our largest one-time donation to the MS Society Utah-Southern Idaho chapter. You have bested yourselves by more than 10% over last year’s total. Way to go!

All of you, being our incredible associates, vendors, and customers, helped raise $272,467 through events and opportunities like the associate Kickball Kick-off, annual golf tournament, customer icon donations, brat meal deals, and Bike MS! It’s always a fun day when you get to make people smile and you helped put that smile on the faces of those with the MS Society Utah-Southern Idaho chapter, and the thousands of Utahns who benefit from their services!

“Stop the disease! Restore what’s been lost! End MS forever!”

Each and every time we ask our communities to step up and help us in a cause we are passionate about, you do it without hesitation and always exceed expectations. From Special Olympics Utah and the MS Society to the Utah Food Bank and local schools, you always provide tremendous support and show why we think we have the greatest communities around – from Ogden to St. George and all around the state. You’re awesome!

Round 3: Harmons Associate “We’re Not Normal” Videos – First Place Entries

Tuesday we presented David and Richard, yesterday showcased Adrienne and James, and today we bring you Shannon and Kole rounding out the six first place videos. We’ve seen a few different styles, approaches and topics – there’s certainly a lot of talent in our associates above and beyond what they do in the stores.

Harmons Associate “We’re Not Normal” Videos – First Place Entries

August 6, 2013

As part of our birthday celebration this year we put the call out to Harmons associates to explain, in their own creative way, what it means when we say “We’re not normal, we’re Harmons.” For this first year of the associate video contest we received more than a dozen fun, informative, original, and creative entries from associates at ten different locations.  The videos were judged based on originality and creativity, entertainment appeal, and the associate’s interpretation of Harmons culture and theme of “We’re not normal, we’re Harmons.” Seven winning videos were selected, six first place winners and one grand prize.

Over the next few days we will be sharing with you the great videos put together by the six first place winners, in no particular order. On Friday we will share the grand prize winning video. Thank you and congratulations to all the associates who took the time and put their talents and passion to work in sharing our story.
