Answers came flying in from all over the company.
The task? Figure out the number pattern and find the solution to the puzzle in the recent edition of Advance, the WDSrx company magazine.
According to Advance editor Alvaro Sanchez, including a puzzle for the contest reinforced the “Risk and Reward” theme of the issue. “Figuring out a number pattern comes with risks. One wrong calculation can throw off the whole pattern and can mislead you. The puzzle was structured to be challenging so I was incredibly surprised when correct answers quickly started coming in immediately after the magazine was distributed.”
With a company culture that emphasizes individual accomplishment and working towards common goals, a large number of responses was expected.
WDSrx team members submitted responses soon after the magazine was distributed to the throughout the company’s seven locations in Florida, Ohio, New Jersey and Texas. The lucky four recipients of a Dunkin’ Gift Card are:
