    How we came to BEE

    The Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation (CCPR) Culture Committee was formed in 2022 to engage staff and build/maintain a positive work environment. 

    The Culture Committee has representation from all five CCPR divisions within its members. These individuals volunteer their time and effort to help facilitate events, initiatives, and new ideas that benefit all staff – full-time, part-time, and seasonal.

    Our Values (H.I.V.E.)


    2022 Initiatives

    We've been busy bees this year! Here's a look at some of the fun memories we've made in 2022.

    Meet Polly

    In 2022, we introduced a new friend: Polly! Polly the bee is CCPR’s mascot. Her name was decided on by a company-wide vote where all staff could enter name ideas and vote for their favorites. Polly was the winning name!

    You may ask, why the bee? The bee symbolizes community, brightness and personal power.Just like parks, bees contribute to complex, interconnected ecosystems that allow a diverse number of different species to co-exist.There is a huge parallel between how we work in the office and the way bees work.
