In January, some of the team went for an Indian after work and all enjoyed a variety of curries and sides. Shout out to Sam for thinking all 9 onion bhajis were for him and placing them all on his plate haha 😂
The Cosy Corner:
ebruary saw the launch of the cosy corner! This is a private space away from the office, where you can switch off and take advantage of the neck massager, blankets, mood lighting and more! It is a place to recoup, to lunch and to talk 🧘
Recognise Success Lunch:
Some of the team enjoyed the 'Recognise Success' lunch at the Blue Strawberry Bistrot in Hatfield Peverel, to celebrate Rutherford Briant Recruitment success in 2022. Congratulations to everyone who attended the lunch.
Ops Away Day:
Our Ops Team visited the Lifehouse Spa & Hotel for a team building day as a newly established team of 5. The day consisted of going back to basics with individual roles and responsibilities and how they come together to create a productive operations division. This was followed by yoga and lunch. The team then established their work and personal goals and finished the day in the spa. They left the day feeling relaxed but equally motivated for the year ahead.
In January, the Rutherford Briant team enjoyed a night out a ACanteen to celebrate a quarter of success ✨ We enjoyed a lovely meal followed by entertainment from AComedy Club, Chelmsford, with great performances from talented comedians such as headliner Tom Ward. Safe to say we all had a good laugh and a great evening 🤩
Employees of the Months:
Congratulations to our 3 employees of the month over this quarter. Ellie has had a great month, keeping a positive attitude throughout. Her hard work doesn't go unrecognised and we look forward to seeing what she can achieve in the coming months. Matt has had a great start to the year and has shown a great work ethic this month. He's been a great team player around the office and is always open to giving advice, even running his own training sessions this month. Louis has had a record month and is always pushing to better, not only himself, but the team as a whole. He has shown a great work ethic and is always willing to help across the team.
What we are looking forward to next quarter:
The team are looking forward to the final quarter of the year, which is going to include lots of exciting activities for Rutherford Briant. We will be hosting our annual charity football event for the Stroke Association in June, so keep your eyes peeled for all the football content that'll be posted soon. We are also looking forward to Easter in the office and celebrating one year since the Rutherford Briant rebrand. Some of the team will also be attending the quarterly Recognise Success Lunch which will be at The Barn in Great Tey.
