About Bonaventure          Leadership          Mission          Core Values

Message from Dwight  

Work hard. Play hard. These core values make Bonaventure's list of what's truly important to us as a company. There is a balance between the two. While continuous hard work can yield great achievements, it can also lead to exhaustion. Play proves integral to far more than simply finding both accomplishment and restoration.

A conference room table in the middle of our north headquarters office has recently become the platform for a mini cornhole game. As our team takes breaks, we regularly engage in a 5 or 10 point game. In these moments of diversion, healthy competition is fostered, folks reveal their sense of humor, and social interaction bonds us. We do better work together when we play together. Now if I could only figure out how my Executive Assistant keeps beating me......

How can you make play work for your team?


Bonaventure Design & Construction

Bonaventure Construction's team continues to grow as their list of renovation and new construction projects expands. This month, they welcome four team members including Ron Lebaron (Project Manager), Gordon Frost (Superintendent), Jose Ortiz (Project Coordinator), and Rob Guilmette (Superintendent).

Carriage Hill Independent Living is officially vertical. Keep up with the progress here. In Richmond, Carriage Club will see a brand new clubhouse break ground this month with an estimated completion date of March 2019. Finally, amenity additions projects at The Encore in Alexandria have begun! Phase 1 will add a new central compactor to the property; Phase 2 will begin around Labor Day.

Stay tuned for more updates.

The Power of Play at Work 

Imagine a workplace where people are allowed to play and even better encouraged to play. Believe it or not, that is what is happening in some organizations. Look at Google, all employees have access to and can play during their workday. They have all sorts of activities like bowling, meditation, wall climbing, volleyball and more. Facebook, LinkedIn and Ideo also provide opportunities for play time at work, anything from ping-pong to arcade games and a few take it one step further by instilling a culture of play. These fun activities are not just for lunch, employees can get up and go play when they get tired of working on a project or answering emails.

Most think of play at work as a distraction, — inappropriate or simply a waste of time. The paradigm of play is that it’s seen as taking time away from “real work.” Just think, what if what we thought work could benefit from play? What if, the opposite of play isn’t work, but rather boredom? We have made assumptions over the years that play doesn’t belong during work hours. As a communication and culture consultant, the typical conversation with clients is often about employee engagement and how to create a more positive and energized workforce. I believe play is the vital missing solution at work. Play in my definition is simply having fun, being joyful and energized. Wouldn’t it be great if all employees were having fun while at work?
