Looking Back at May 2017

June 1, 2017

May was a busy month at Pinnacle! Anticipating lower hiring trends during May before the big June uptick, Pinnacle was able to get out and about in Pittsburgh this past month and early June. If you missed our updates on Social Media, here’s a recap of all the awesome events Pinnacle attended.

Events at a Glance

Pinnacle Volunteers at St. Jude’s Pittsburgh Gala

May 13 | Omni William Penn Hotel, Pittsburgh

As a locally-owned, Pittsburgh-based company, the employees of Pinnacle are constantly looking for ways to not only promote our city as a great place to live and work, but to also give back to our community. Last Saturday, Pinnacle received the opportunity to volunteer at the St. Jude’s Pittsburgh Gala. It was an honor to receive a chance to give back to an organization which does so much for those children who are faced with a battle no child should have to go through. Thank you to all those who came out and donated at the event and make sure to mark your calendars for the 2018 Pittsburgh St. Jude’s Gala on April 21, 2018!

Pinnacle’s Spring Client Appreciation Event at PNC Park

May 18 | PNC Park, Pittsburgh

On May 18, Pinnacle held it’s 5th Client Appreciation Event at PNC Park to thank all those who have helped us to achieve so much over the past few years. It was a great afternoon watching the Pirates crush the Washington Nationals 10-4. Thank you, again, for all those who came out. We are privileged to help you with your day to day accounting and finance talent needs.

Links to a Cure – Cystic Fibrosis Golf Outing

Pinnacle’s very-own Ryan Giblock spent a day on the green raising money for a good cause this past month. Jessica Kosty, one of Pittsburgh’s 50 Finest 2017 class, hosted Links to a Cure to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis research, medical, and educational programs. All proceeds were donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Classy Thursdays Return!

Every Other Thursday | Pinnacle Consulting & Recruiting HQ

Classy Thursdays have returned to Pinnacle! You may be asking yourself, “What in the heck are classy Thursdays?” At Pinnacle, we firmly believe that happy employees result in happy clients and candidates. We couldn’t do it without our team. To thank them for their continued efforts, every other Thursday throughout the summer we will be bouncing out of the office slightly early to celebrate our employees’ hard work and dedication. To kick-start the Classy Thursday, Pinnacle celebrated with a Luau. What’s better than pineapple-flavored beverages, Mai Tai’s (non-alcoholic of course), and some bocce fun. These are Pinnacle values.
