With Christmas just around the corner the time has come again for Brits up and down the country to muddle through the social minefield of the Office Christmas Party, with awkward small talk, drunken mishaps and office politics promising a night you’d rather forget come January.
However, this year all that is changing thanks to one set of generous directors who are treating their team to the office Christmas do of a lifetime – an all-expenses paid, seven night blow out on Thailand’s party island of Phuket.
Directors at recruitment firm Logical Resources Sales & Technical Recruitment set their UK and Melbourne teams the most ambitious revenue target in the history of the company, with the promise that if the target was reached the whole office would be jetting off to Thailand’s party capital.
Both teams reached the aggressive target before the deadline, resulting in what promises to be the best office Christmas party in the world!
For seven nights, all employees from the UK and Australia offices will enjoy some well-earned downtime at the luxury Novotel at Kamala Beach, just north of Patong Beach famous for its lively nightlife.
Director, Rob Carlton, said: “We believe that recognition in the workplace has the power to transform lives, and this is an attitude we’ve taken at Logical Resources Sales & Technical Recruitment over the years. An engaged, committed workforce is absolutely critical to maintaining a positive internal culture, as well as generating business growth, so it makes sense to us to reward our employees when it’s due.
“We set some really aggressive targets for this incentive, so it’s testament to the team’s passion, commitment, and ability that they managed to succeed, helping our clients to achieve their goals while also reaching our own business objectives.”
Logical Resources Sales & Technical Recruitment’s commitment to staff training and wellbeing has been the catalyst for its sustained growth since 2001, and the business now boasts offices in Leeds, Melbourne and California.
Kurt Wagner, UK Director at Logical Resources, said: “I started at Logical as a graduate, and, under Rob’s guidance, have worked my way up to my current role where I head up the UK operation. Rob’s commitment to supporting and developing the individuals he sees have potential is astounding, and I couldn’t think of a better reward for such a hardworking team than such an amazing Christmas party.”
As well as the Thailand extravaganza, employees at Logical Resources have previously been incentivised with two trips to the party isle of Ibiza, and a stay in Barcelona. The team have also previously travelled to Belgium to join 400,000 others at Tomorrowland, one of the world’s most in-demand festivals whose 2018 tickets sold out in less than an hour.
