Lifestyle at L.A. Fuess Partners
Katy Trail Social Runs
Located just down the street from the L.A. Fuess Partners Dallas office, the Katy Trail is a 3.5 mile long paved walking, skating, running, and biking trail that runs through Uptown from the SMU campus to the American Airlines Center. Throughout the year, many of our employees take to the trail to stretch their legs after a day in the office. Located on the trail, the Katy Trail Ice House provides the perfect spot for L.A. Fuess employees to replenish carbohydrates after a run. Whether it’s a small group meeting up after work, one of the large sponsored social runs for the Form Follows Fitness 5k, or a run/walk on your own, the Katy Trail is an ideal location.
Taking place at The Sand Bar Cantina, many of our young engineers enjoy teaming up to play sand volleyball throughout the year. One of the many sports available through Dallas Sport and Social Club, the sand volleyball league provides a great opportunity to socialize with your fellow coworkers and to meet other young adults in the area.
Near the end of the summer, L.A. Fuess Partners sponsors a company bowling night in north Dallas as a way to welcome our new employees, and to send a warm “thank you” to our summer interns. This event provides a great opportunity to meet new coworkers outside of the office while enjoying a fun night of bowling, food, and drinks.
Team Golf Challenge
Taking advantage of the many affordable municipal golf courses available in the Dallas area, L.A. Fuess Partners began holding a Team Golf Challenge in 2014. Employees from across the office are drafted onto teams by some of our top golfers for a weekday afternoon to see who has the skill, determination, and luck to take home bragging rights.
To foster and encourage continued growth in our employees’ communication and leadership skills, L.A. Fuess Partners participates in a local chapter club of Toastmasters International. Multiple times a month, the club gathers for organized meetings during lunchtime in which members have the opportunity to lead and conduct meetings, give speeches, provide verbal evaluations, and improve their impromptu speaking abilities in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. The club also arranges speech contests each year to showcase their talents and recognize their top speakers. At L.A. Fuess, we highly value the personal and professional advancement this worldwide organization produces in our employees.
