Lake Starnberg, Bavaria, Germany 2015 – Annual Employee Awards Ceremony and Christmas Party
Christmas 2015 saw our Annual Employee Awards Ceremony and Christmas party take place in the serene setting of Lake Starnberg, in Bavaria, Germany. Our colleagues from across Europe were in full attendance, ready to celebrate successes throughout the year, and for teams to back each other in a spot of friendly inter-office competition!
The evening got off to a kick-start with a champagne reception at the Undosa, Hugos Beach Club overlooking the lake – the perfect place for both new and long serving colleagues to introduce themselves or catch up since last year.
The reception was followed by a delicious, appetizing five course meal before the awards ceremony commenced.
Dressed in traditional Bavarian lederhosen, CEO Mike Garlick and Director of Talent Acquisition, James Furlong, took to the stage to deliver the awards presentation. It began with a retrospective review of the biggest accomplishments that the business has achieved in 2015.
With jokes in cue to keep the crowd entertained, Mike and James presented a range of awards in recognition of outstanding performance and effort over the past 12 months. Awards included: best new Resourcer, most improved sales team and back office star.
After the Awards, the dance floor was cleared, the DJ got into position and the dancing began!
What Our Employees Said:
One new colleague confessed, “I was nervous before the ceremony as I’ve only recently joined MBA and didn’t really know anyone at all, but when I arrived everyone one was so welcoming and friendly. I felt like part of the wider MBA family straight away!”
One of our more senior colleagues’s stated, “I am very proud of my team for picking up a couple of awards on the night. It emphasizes the importance of team work and shows that it really doesn’t go unnoticed.”
