Monthly Grammar Tips: January 2016

Building a brand depends on every point of contact that each employee has with customers, prospects, and partners. And despite being experts within respective disciplines, everyone is still occasionally bedeviled by a common high school nemesis: GRAMMAR! To help with the challenge, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes,” addressing misspellings, misuses, and misnomers in everyday communication. This quickly became the source of much dialogue around the proverbial water cooler, so we decided to make it a recurring feature on our blog. We hope you find it as useful as we do!

This month we explore describing a collection of items as ranges or lists, continuing trouble with using than or then, the newly acceptable use of the singular theyand tricky phrasing surrounding possessives.

Congratulations to our December 2015 SUPO!

At Opus, we call our employee of the month award the “SUPO.” It’s kind of a long story, but essentially: It’s “OPUS” spelled backwards, and it sounds a little like “super.” This month’s SUPO is…

Congratulations to our 2015 TeamCS Award Winners!

Here at Opus, we take teamwork very seriously. Our overarching philosophy when it comes to our team can be summed up simply: We hire amazing people, guide them with strong values, and empower them to do great work with industry-best methodology. This formula drives success for our customers, and we call it TeamCSTM.

At each year’s end, during a special all-day agency offsite (this year’s theme: Heroes and Villains), we recognize select employees who’ve gone above and beyond to exemplify TeamCS values, as well two rock-star rookies. To get a better feel for this event, check out our post about Team Connect and our annual holiday party. Without further ado, here are this year’s winners:

Monthly Grammar Tips: December 2015

Opus is a full-service marketing agency. As such, we consider each and every member of the Opus team to have a direct hand in marketing. Every point of contact with customers, prospects, and partners presents an opportunity to further our brand. We take pride in the quantity and quality of our communication—no matter the medium—which makes it even more important for our writing to be strong and free of errors. To that end, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes” with the aim of raising the bar of the written word across the entire agency. Our notes should provide utility to everyone, whether you’re a fledgling scribbler or a confirmed word nerd.

2015 Team Connect / Holiday Party Event

At the end of every year, Opus Agency has its annual Team Connect event, a high-energy, all-staff offsite where we review the prior year’s results, celebrate our successes, acknowledge everyone’s contributions — epic swag! — and look ahead to the coming year. We break at the end of the day for some prepping and primping, then reconvene in the evening for our annual holiday party. (This year’s theme: Heroes & Villains.)
