Every year at Spark, we run an internal employee reward and recognition program, which sees our team receive points for going the extra mile in their roles at Spark. Points are awarded for innovative ideas which can improve the business, ideas which can reduce our environmental impact, or just for going above and beyond to help their teams, or Spark as a whole.
This year, we had 160 employees that had been awarded points. All those with a reward and recognition point are entered into a draw to win prizes of £500, and £750 respectively. All those with 3 or more points are then entered into an additional draw to win the grand prize of £1500.
This year, the grand prize was won by Lindsey loftus, Production Operative in our Unit 4 e-Fulfilment warehouse, who this year celebrated her twelfth year with Spark Response. Lindsey currently works on a variety of campaigns, including Micro Scooters, where she is also the expert gift wrap operative, a service Spark offers to all clients, and is especially popular at this time of year.
2nd prize went to Rob Moore, Production Operative in our multi client eCommerce fulfilment warehouse. Rob is in his 8th year with Spark Response, and is part of a key team which handles various client accounts, fulfilling products including gifts, gadgets, groceries, and more. Rob’s 2nd prize won him £750.
3rd prize, and £500 was won by Matthew Whelan, Sales Advisor within our telemarketing team, who received one of his points for earning the following praise from a customer he had just spoken to:
“I know that you probably get a lot of complaints but I would just like to tell you that I have just spoken with Matthew and he has to be the best person I have ever had to do business with over the phone, he has been funny and helpful it has been like taking to a new friend on the phone and i just wanted to let you know.”
It’s great to be able to reward the team at Spark, especially at this time of year. All three winners were blown away by their prizes, and are currently working out what they’ll spend their unexpected winnings on!
