While I am typically more excited about watching versus playing sports, a group of Chopper Trading employees enjoy a game of basketball every now and then, and together they participate in a basketball league organized by Chicago Sport and Social. With a team of about 15 players, these guys are veterans to the league. Their team name is “Chopper Bucket Fills,” which is a word play on a trading term. Our first game of the season kicks off this week. With seven games in the season, and potentially, three play-off games, these guys deserve kudos for making the effort to show up for games and keep the team going during this tough winter weather.
Employee participation in sports leagues is a way to raise awareness about the Chopper Trading brand in the Chicago area. When our employees go out, get involved in the community, and engage with other organizations while carrying the Chopper Trading name, it shows that Chopper Trading isn’t just a company that sits idly in Chicago; it’s a company that weaves itself into the fabric of our city and the community.
