In keeping with our Island roots, employees around the country enjoy catching up in one of our many signature Tiki Lounges. And then there are the events. Holiday parties, employee celebrations, company meetings and recognition occasions, not to mention our “endless summer” family barbeques. So for us, the old saw is true. We do work hard.
