CHIPS ARE UP FOR MACILDOWIE STARS
CHIPS ARE UP FOR MACILDOWIE STARSFour hard-working staff members at specialist recruitment agency Macildowie, found theyd hit the jackpot after they earned a trip to Las Vegas. Arran Jaiswal, the manager of the Derby office Claire Coombs, a senior consultant in the Nottingham office Jamie Draper, a senior finance consultant from the Northampton office and Matthew Gissing the manager of the Northampton office all won the trip after hitting their personal targets at the end of the last financial year. The quartet was accompanied by James Taylor and John Convey, directors at Macildowie. The company, which specialises in HR, finance, procurement and supply chain recruitment, hit the headlines last year when it came 19th in the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For, making it the highest placed Midlands recruitment consultancy. Director, James Taylor said: We know we have hard working staff, and when they reach personal milestones, we like to reward them. Not only does this show that we value what Arran, Claire, Jamie and Matthew have done over the last year, it also serves as a benchmark for what our staff can strive to even in a recession. During the trip to Vegas, the four checked into the prestigious Venezia Bella Suites, before enjoying a meal and dancing the night away as VIP guests at the exclusive Lavo restaurant and club. On the second day, they took in the spectacular Cirque du Soleil, and to top it all, they even managed to get a table next to rock star Tommy Lee at the Hard Rock Caf! Macildowie has been running these schemes, aimed at incentivising staff during traditionally quiet periods of the year, since 1998. As a result, members of the team have visited far-flung destinations such as Miami, Cape Town and Dubai all because theyve achieved their goals. James added: Weve also run a number of other incentives during the year, all aimed at getting the best from our excellent team. Each year they deliver and the effects of this are not only felt in the great work environment, but also in the service levels to clients.
