What makes a company really cool?
It’s become an annual ritual, The Niyaa People Conference. It’s 2 weeks prior and the team still have no idea where they’re going. Some suspect Bristol, others say Liverpool and there’s a running joke it’s Cannock.
Sat in the board room, with one week left, the reveal video plays. It’s a 9 bedroom converted Victoria Oast set in the Kent countryside. Take one look around the room; smiles and whispers heighten the excitement.
Fast forward to April 27th, the convoy sets off for the 3 hour drive from Birmingham. We arrive at the local Town Hall, for the ‘conference’ portion of the weekend. We reflect on where we’ve come from, the success of the year just gone and looking forward to the new chapter. Dal Shoker (MD) headed up the conference, with guest talks from Kate Rose (Marketing), Tyree Clarke (Recruitment Consultant), Matthew Guest (Section Manager) and we were delighted to have James Osborne from The Recruitment Network for a motivational session.
Then it was time to commence the weekend. It was all a whirlwind from then on. Dive bombing in the pool, ping pong, murder mystery, sports day, black tie awards dinner, birthday celebrations, dancing, laughter. Sometimes it’s just fun to tell a story filled with fun and excitement, and that’s exactly what this was.
This is one of the things that makes us cool.
Don’t take our word for it, please take a look at the video and pictures for yourself. But tell us, what’s your coolest work memory?
