Halloween is our CEO, Stu's, favorite holiday. With that said, our Halloween celebrations seem to get more and more extravagant every year! From our Clearwater, Florida, U.S. headquarters to our offices around the globe, let’s check out how Knowsters celebrated Halloween in 2022.

Celebrations At Our Global Headquarters

Our headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, is home to our largest Halloween celebration! This year, our Fun & Shenanigans team brought back KnowBe4’s annual coffee walk and costume contest. The annual coffee walk has been a tradition since KnowBe4’s beginnings, and due to the global pandemic, we haven’t been able to host this event for the past two years. Our Knowsters were ecstatic to get back to their roots! All Knowsters walked through downtown Clearwater where KnowBe4 bought every Knowster a drink of choice from various local shops. Restoration Cafe, Kara Lynn’s Kitchen, Escape Root Juicery, and Starbucks were all pit stops on this year’s walk.

The Fun & Shenanigans team did an excellent job spearheading this annual event, and we are so grateful for their hard work and creative vision!


Celebrations In Our Utrecht, Netherlands Office

While Halloween isn't as popular of a holiday in the Netherlands, our Knowsters still love to participate in all the fun! This year the office was decorated, and employees enjoyed some sweet treats. The Utrecht People Operations team also invited a make-up artist to do festive make-up for any Knowsters dressed up for the occasion. Whether in the office or working virtually, many employees dressed up. Check out the fantastic costumes!

Celebrations In Our York, United Kingdom Office

The Knowsters in the UK were clowning around when it came to Halloween this year! They decorated the office to look like an evil circus and enjoyed some spooky delectables. These clown costumes were absolutely amazing. Sharon says, "There were plenty of treats (not too many tricks) and the team enjoyed lunch together. Everyone participated in competitions for the best costume and best pumpkin." Check out the award-winning costume and pumpkin!

Celebrations In Our Sao Paulo, Brazil Office

Knowsters in Brazil celebrated Halloween with tombstone brownies and dressed up for their virtual calls! Marina, a Knowster in our Brazil office, says, "Claudio won the local costume contest as Bob the Builder, an inside joke among the Knowsters in Brazil based on a codename for an R&D project. We love that our Brazil team still celebrated in a remote work environment!"
