Boston is commonly referred to as “Championship City” to reflect the accolades of our beloved sports teams. But it was music – not sports – that helped us close out the summer and celebrate our championship team of employees, clients, and users.
Each summer Kenny Chesney ends his tour at Gillette Stadium with his No Shoes Nation fans. This was the Motus team’s second year attending, but we had an exciting addition this summer to make the event even better: we welcomed three Motus users and their guests to join in on the fun.
Although our users interact with the Motus app everyday, this was a unique opportunity to get to know them better and for them to get to know us – who we are as a company, team, and family. Our family is made up of folks who strive to remain curious, brave, and exceptional while also ensuring we have a great time along the way…and that we did. The day was filled with laughter, singing, BBQ’ing, and even some dancing amongst friends, family, and our fellow No Shoes Nation members of New England.
For many in attendance, it was their first time seeing Kenny Chesney in concert. For another, it was the 14th. And he certainly did not disappoint. Nor did the fans. As the show was getting started, the crowd was so loud that Kenny himself stopped and let us know his emotions were high because in all his years of touring, it was the loudest he had ever heard one his crowds. It’s that kind of passion that exemplifies what we stand for and made this the perfect event to come together as a team.
Our new friend Len Newman from St. Jude also sent the following note after returning home to Alabama:
“Team Motus, I wanted to send you guys a quick message and thank you and your entire team for a wonderful weekend in Boston!
Christy and I were listening to No Shoes Radio and Kenny Chesney said that his best memory of the Spread the Love Tour came on the last day of the tour in Boston…pretty cool! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your team for the weekend. It was clear throughout the entire weekend that your team has a special bond and commitment to team. The culture that you have created was very noticeable, and I am sure that it will continue to pay dividends in terms of productivity and employee retention. Congratulations…culture is one of the most important aspects of an organization’s success, and it is one of the hardest things to create and maintain!”
Thank you for the memories, Kenny. We will see you next year!
