The days of the old (and sometimes dreadful) company picnics dominated by
tedious and embarrassing team builders can now be a thing of the past for
companies in Buffalo. At worK, a new business partnership offered by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery aims to provide its partners with low-cost training and networking
opportunities for their employees.
The program enables local business and their employees to engage with the
Knox in new ways, while the Gallery’s collections act as a background and
stimulus for networking and learning.
Skill-building sessions are presented by the Gallery’s Education
Department staff, and use art as the focus to help improve workplace skills
like communication, creative thinking, innovation and reducing stress.
opportunities will be available throughout the year during scheduled events
offered exclusively for At worK
Partners’ employees. Other benefits for
At worK Partners include recognition in a yearly Business First
supplement and in Gallery publications. Discounted rental rates for
entertaining at the Gallery are also a perk for partners.
Subscriptions are available for an annual rate, and are available based
on the organization’s size and number of employees, starting at $300.
