Last year we started this competition and awarded employee of the week and van of the week to the employee with the best van and employee with the best testimonials, sales of oven liners, up-sells of jobs etc. Matt, although he started in August, out performed everyone to get his award getting regular great testimonials and doing a sterling job selling oven liners and get people to fill out our VIP forms. Both operatives were awarded a cash prize of £300.
This year we are doing the competition differently still with weekly awards but we are giving out the prize every 13 weeks. We thought this would allow everyone to compete for the prize as what happened last year was that guys lost interest if they got behind in the rankings.
What this for our business was to improve the state of our vans. They are now regularly cleaned – shame about the guys workwear you might say – I think'll of something…
The first photo is all of The Oven Gleam Team and you can see that we were perfectly sized by Catherine before she took the photo - her RAF background showing through. I have been sized myself since I was back in the RAF myself!
