(Large group: 16+) Table Introductions –
Using the playing card they received upon arrival, new hires are to organize into small groups of 4-5, based on the color of the card (example: groups of 4-5 red).
Each person at the table is to introduce him/herself and briefly describe their connection with that card. (The employee will need to draw a connection between himself and the card) Example: Good morning. My name is Iman E. Wemploy. My connection to this 5 of Diamonds is that my wife and I just celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary.
