We’re going to make you a star!

By admin on 20th February 2017

Aston Martins, Ferraris, Porsches. I could get used to this…

Every month at our company meeting, Octopus Group takes the time to recognise employees who have gone the extra mile. Everyone has the opportunity to give a ‘shout out’ to a colleague who has worked well or achieved excellent results, leading to ripples of applause around the room for the individual mentioned.

Then there’s Campaign of the Month, where we showcase our best work. And, for a lucky few, a Superstar Award for going beyond the call of duty or delivering extra value to the company. Something I was lucky enough to receive recently.

I was told I had scooped the Superstar Award because, over the previous few months  I had really focused my efforts on delivering consistent, high value results for clients, as well as teaming up with some of my brilliant colleagues to play an active role in a new business win.

And the prize? Well, my boss Laura arranged for an awesome Supercar Experience at Rockingham Motor Speedway. The vehicle selection was legendary and I opted for the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, Ferrari 355 and Porsche 911 Turbo.

So, what had been a busy time for me at work resulted in my having the time of my life! Putting the pedal to the metal while my girlfriend and her brother cheered me on, trackside. The Ferrari was the best car to drive and it was a fantastic day all round.

With Superstar Awards up for grabs throughout the year, they’re an ongoing inspiration for everyone at the company to do their best work, as well as a great way for Octopus Group to show employees that they acknowledge and appreciate the extra effort, enthusiasm and drive they’ve put in. Something our clients are quick to recognise too!
