Parties: Kitware throws annual, family-friendly summer and holiday parties. Our summer picnic typically involves a bounce house, obstacle course, rock wall, and (of course) great food. For our winter holiday party, it's a chance for Kitware employees and their families to dress up (the one time each year we put on our Sunday best) and celebrate another successful year.
Other company events: It's great that there are things you can put on your calendar far in advance, but it's also nice to have surprise event invitations pop into your inbox. We hold several family-friendly events throughout the year, such as bowling, attending minor-league hockey and baseball games, hayrides, roller skating, and visiting the local zoo. Our admin team has a knack for planning these, and they are also open to suggestions.
