Following a record first quarter, Nine Telecom staff celebrated in style in Royal Tunbridge Wells with a Wild West Themed evening organised by the billing team.
Every quarter Nine Telecom staff are treated to a night out courtesy of the company to thank them for their hard work and dedication. This event was made even more memorable due to a brilliant start to the year and the company hitting and exceeding all its targets in Q1.
Each department has a turn to choose the night’s theme and Q1’s saw Kerry Morris (Billing Manager), take up the reigns and kick off the year with a Wild West extravaganza. Kerry commented “Nights like this are a great chance for the whole team to get together and really enjoy each others company. Nine still has a real family feel even though we now have three offices with over 100 staff and a run rate of £40m. Billing took advantage of the good weather and the strong performance, opting for a Wild West theme that kicked off in the Smith and Western restaurant and ended in the early morning, in the aptly named Picher & Piano.”
Matthew Lambert, MD of Nine Telecom commented “We have a really dedicated and motivated team of professionals at Nine Telecom and they have adapted brilliantly to the needs of the business since I joined at the end of 2009. The day and night gives me an opportunity to brief the company on our financial results at the end of each quarter, set the strategy for the coming quarter and ensure we are aligned with the Nine Telecom Group objectives. It also allows us to welcome on board any new starters that join in the quarter, reward our employee of the month as nominated by the rest of the staff and provide an open forum for staff to ask questions and provide really useful feedback on what is working and what we can do better moving forward.”
Lambert continued, “The overarching objective for Nine Telecom in 2011 is ‘Maximising the opportunity’ which we have encompassed into five key projects each being run by a divisional director and focuses on working exclusively via our channel of partners and their customers. Our excellent retention levels across staff, customers and partners is testament to the work we do behind the scenes and we continuously train every member of staff be able to drive the Nine Telecom Group message with every communication both internally and externally.”
