HLE Takes Company Rewards Trip to Las Vegas



Last weekend, HLE’s staff went on a company rewards trip to Las Vegas, NV for some fun, relaxation and bonding.  They got the chance to spend a weekend away with their wives without their children and were selected for the trip based on their performance and hard work.

The group stayed at the Westin Hotel, which is one block away from the Las Vegas strip and includes a casino and spa.  They received spending money to use during their stay and enjoyed a dinner at Pampas Brazilian Steakhouse.

One of the trip highlights was The Variety Show, which they saw at Planet Hollywood, one of the premier Las Vegas hotels.  The show involved the most astounding acts from around the world, with magic, special effects, death-defying stunts and comedy.  Below is a video from one of the shows:

High-Light Electric, Inc. is so thankful for the hard work and fantastic performance of all of their staff and looks forward to more fun trips like this one in the future!
