Office design and décor can speak volumes about the people who work there. And let me tell you, the folks who work at Right Choice Camps & Catering in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, are one festive bunch!
This lucky group of employees had a major hand in the complete remodel of their office which began in 2013 and was completed last summer with the purchase of an adjacent building. The staff not only went green with LED lighting, but they threw in Royal Blue, Buttery Yellow, Barn Red, Blush Pink, and Magenta for good measure!
