Your office has a candy dish for Halloween? Maybe someone sets a jack-o-lantern next to the door? That's nice. But Gymboree's San Francisco headquarters owns the holiday. Employees at the kids clothing company transform all seven floors of their office into different worlds each October. It's all part of the company's Halloween party, when staffers bring their families in for an afternoon of office trick-or-treating and games. In addition to dressing up according to the theme of each floor, Gymboree took it a step further this year by supporting a different charity for each floor, including St. Judes Children's Hospital, Boys & Girls Clubs, A Home Within, ASPCA, and more. So yes, an office can win Halloween. And this is just one way to do it.
