ACS Go To South Africa!

You may have read my articles on how to motivate staff, how to engage staff and inspire them to overachieve their objectives and goals. Well here's how ACS put theory into practice...

You may not know, but Q4 is a pretty big deal here at ACS. Every year there's a theme, and from October to December the company is split into teams across the business. The theme for Q4 2015 was "I'm a Celebrity Get Me out of Here" to which we (cleverly) renamed to "I'm an ACS'er Get Me out of Here." Each week points were based on a combination of objectives for both the sales and operations members of the team, the top three each week could then qualify for an extra weekly task in which they were given the chance to earn even more points. The tasks were true jungle style and were certainly not for the faint hearted - who said getting to South Africa would be easy!?

Three months of hard work paid off for the winning team, Snake Rock, who were victorious! The team members are now nearly 9,000 miles away in South Africa on an all expenses paid, once in a lifetime Safari Trip with lots of other activities planned in-between! To say we are a little jealous would be an understatement!

Here are just a few pictures from their trip so far below:
