A spook-tacular celebration


This time of year, pumpkin spice fills the air (and coffee shops across the country), crisp leaves cover the ground, scary movies appear in theaters and on TV, and fall colors surround us as ghosts and goblins make their annual appearance. It’s Halloween – a night when trick-or-treaters roam neighborhoods looking for goodies to fill their bags before heading back home with their bounty.

In addition to trick-or-treating, children – and oftentimes, adults – across the country celebrate Halloween by bobbing for apples, carving pumpkins, attending fall festivals, sitting around bonfires and participating in other festive activities, which sometimes include playing pranks.   

At RSM, we have 11 employee-led employee network group (ENGs) that focus on connecting the people in our 87 offices nationwide to educate one another about issues and topics important to one another and to build understanding and acceptance of our unique differences.

Our Family First ENG is coordinating a number of family-friendly activities at our various offices across the country in recognition of Halloween. For example, we’re hosting a number of events where spouses and children of our people can enjoy trick-or-treating and other kid-friendly activities in our seasonally decorated offices.

Regardless of how – or even if – you’re celebrating Halloween, on behalf of our 11,000 people nationwide, I’d like to wish you and your little ghosts and goblins a spooky good time this Halloween!
