The Jones and Palmer team shook off the snow and banished the winter blues this weekend at the first ever January Jolly, a company-wide celebration of the last year’s achievements.
Taking place at Birmingham’s Hilton Metropole, the evening featured a five-course meal and entertainment from mind-boggling magician and sleight of hand specialist Christian Fletcher, and music from party band Cloud Nine.
Taking centre stage though was the first ever Jones and Palmer award ceremony. The ‘Jonesies’ gave the team a chance to recognise each other’s individual achievements in the past year and beyond, with awards for innovation, personal development and embodying brand values, as well as top veteran and best newcomer.
Among the winners was Senior Designer Kelle Cox, who was also instrumental in the organisation of the evening. She said, “An event like this was a fantastic excuse to get the team together and celebrate a great year at Jones and Palmer.
“The evening and the awards in particular were a real success and will hopefully be the first of many. My own awards were a real morale boost, it’s great to know that colleagues appreciate my effort and commitment.”
Congratulations also to Delroy, Fiona, Suzanne and Ollie and to everyone who fought through the snow to join the celebrations. We’ll see you again next year!
