‘Tis the Season: HI’s Consultant Holiday Party

Holiday wreaths hanging on wall with name tags below them

‘Tis the season for holiday cheer and last week we decked out our halls in celebration of a wonderful year. Last Thursday, Horizontal integration hosted our much anticipated, 2nd annual Consultant Holiday Open House. This was a night dedicated to celebrating our remarkable consultants, to thank them for their hard work in 2018, and to kick off the holiday season in style.

More than 100 HI consultants from the Twin Cities attended the soiree and enjoyed an entertaining evening of cocktails, nibbles, mingling and networking. Our consultants had the opportunity to get complementary professional head-shots taken, win amazing raffle prizes, feast on delicious hours d’oeuvres and meet and mingle with fellow consultants and HI staff. This was an evening not to be missed and one that we had been looking forward to all year.

Here is what some had to say about the event:

“It’s so great to get a chance to meet and network with other HI Consultants. I had no idea just how many HI Consultants there were, and the best part is being able to meet other consultants who are working at my same client, who I haven’t had a chance to meet yet. Now, I have a few new HI friends to look forward to seeing when I go to work!”  – HI Consultant

The consultant holiday party was a great opportunity to meet a lot of people and celebrate their efforts and loyalty in 2018. It gave people a chance to get to know one another away from work. This is a night where we can bring the life blood of HI together to have a little fun and express thanks and appreciation for their collective efforts. It’s a can’t miss event! – HI Account Manager

Thank you for taking the time to chat with me at your event [last week]. It’s not easy when you have so many people you need to talk to! I also wanted to say that it’s really an honor and a pleasure to work for HI. I’ve worked with many consulting firms over the years, but none have come close to showing the kind of genuine interest in the well-being of their consultants. No wonder you’re so successful! (And thanks again for finding me such great clients to work with.) – HI Consultant

It was such a great event to show our gratitude to our consultants. They are the reason we do what we do each day and to be able to hear how much they love their jobs is a great reminder on the tough days. – HI Recruiter

The night was a success!  It was an opportunity to show our consultants that we care about them by taking the time to connect with them on a personal level. Building the personal relationships with our consultants is what our jobs should be about, and the holiday party provides us with that opportunity, along with reflecting back on a great year due to their efforts. – HI Account Manager

To quote one of our HI team members, “we want our consultants to see us as more than just a place that sends them a paycheck.  We want HI to be something that our consultants are proud to be a part of.”

So, cheers to a fantastic 2018 and a massive thank you to all of our wonderful consultants!

Happy Holidays!


Everyone, Talent
