Every year Ovation Incentives takes a day to meet as one team to reflect on the current year, communicate business objectives for the coming year and have a bit of fun while doing it. Life is about balance, and we strive to do our best in both departments!
Last month, we were all gathered at the spectacular Swan restaurant attached to Shakespeare’s Globe theatre on the banks of the River Thames. Jonathan Grey, our CEO kicked off the day of presentations and knowledge sharing. Employees were able to learn from all the different departments in our company including from the Business Development, Fulfilment, the Client Account Management teams and the Software Development team to get a better understanding of personal and department specific challenges and successes in more detail.
Later in the afternoon, the team took part in an interactive 2-hour treasure hunt challenge in the London Bridge area. We were divided into four groups and given a tablet to find the hidden GPS-based riddles and take part in photo and video challenges. The more correct questions answered and creative challenges submitted, the more points were rewarded to each team. After a tight competition, “The Pioneering Pineapples” team took home the trophy with a 50 point lead, but it was a great team-building exercise for the whole company.
We then were treated to fine dining and entertainment in the city centre to the early hours of the morning, a perfect end to a thoroughly enjoyable day. We hope to share some of the exciting updates and new developments with you over the coming months.
