Flashbulb memories. Ever heard of it? It’s when you remember a distinct moment in time of something that had great meaning for you – and it can only happen if you feel an incredible sense of personal or cultural connection to the event that results in a strong emotional reaction. The first date with your spouse. Graduating high school. Finishing a marathon.
Or – finding out Pizza Hut won the GOLD Brandon Hall Award for its Life Unboxed culture campaign.
Yes, that’s right – Pizza Hut is both humbled and incredibly proud to have won this distinguished award from a renowned organization that recognizes excellence in talent and culture. Because this award celebrates you. It celebrates a culture created by team members who are second to none. And it celebrates how the culture is lived out every day – by becoming your best. Making friends. And having fun. And by delivering food you’re proud to serve – with a smile and FAST – to millions of customers across the nation. The team here at the Pizza Hut headquarters may have created the Life Unboxed campaign – but the reason it is so powerful is because it is authentic to the way team members, like yourself, approach life at Pizza Hut every day.
