Business telecoms company, Chess has come over all continental in recent months as it continues to turn up the heat in its summer holiday incentive.
Chess is now three months into the incentive, which gives all customers, partners and Chess people the chance to win a trip of a lifetime. And to celebrate the exotic locations on offer as prizes in the competition, Chess is holding monthly themed days that have seen Chess people go crazy for a bit of culture.
On Paris day Chess people enjoyed croissants and café au lait and there was much “ooh la la”-ing at the variety of chic (and unique) French themed style around the office. An art competition provided further opportunity for Chess people to express their creativity, and this they did, with a standard of entry that impressed judge – Chess chief executive, David Pollock greatly.
Rome day was celebrated with a pizza lunch and Chess people again released their inner artist as teams were challenged to create pasta-pieces – works of art made of pasta. The standard of the entries was again high, demonstrating Chess people’s artistic flair is not affected by their focus on peak performance and exceptional customer service! After much deliberation, an independent judge from local Italian restaurant – Gusto – crowned the Marketing Team the winners with their unique Chess take on the Three Tenors.
As well as creating a buzz around Chess, the theme days have raised over £120 for The Prince’s Trust and Children with Leukaemia with donations for dressing down… or dressing up, as seems to have been the case!
Every Chess customer has been allocated tickets in the draw to win the holiday. The more products they have and the longer their contract with Chess, the more tickets they have in the draw to win.
Every time a customer registers to activate their tickets, the Chess person they speak to is entered into a separate draw to win their choice of holiday.
And to really get into the swing of Rome day, Chief Executive David Pollock went the extra mile or 1332 miles to be exact and actually travelled to the ancient city himself.
“There was a great atmosphere in the office in our theme days and Chess people put in a lot of effort. The quality of the art competitions has been outstanding. Paris day’s winning entry was the Accounts Team who made a picture of the whole team dressed as French Maids! Our aim is to reward Chess customers, people and partners for their loyalty with a well deserved holiday of a lifetime and our theme days are a fun way of creating a buzz around the business about the summer holiday incentive. ”
