Violet's Newcross Nautical Adventure!

Violet Cruise

Each year at Newcross the top 20% of staff are entered into a prize draw to win the holiday of a lifetime! The 100 club winner is able to choose from three different options, last year's options were a luxury cruise, an action packed skiing trip for two in Switzerland, or an all inclusive family holiday for four in Spain.

Last year's winner was our Hamilton branch's Staff Allocation Officer, Violet Coulter. Violet selected the luxury cruise and as well as getting the opportunity to cruise the Mediterranean she received £500 spending money and an extra week of annual leave to take the trip.

Violet took her partner Steve on the luxury cruise and they have recently returned having had a fabulous time. Violet commented:

"We had a wonderful time. Watching the sunset from our balcony on the cruise ship was one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen"

The cruise ship departed from Barcelona and over the course of the week docked at Zete, Portofino, Livorno (which was her favourite stop), Tunisia, Sorrento, and finally Rome. Violet said that the highlights of the trip were shopping in Livorno and drinking wine on her balcony.

About working for Newcross Violet said:

"Having an incentive makes you work harder to meet your objectives so you can make it in to the 100 club. Being the winner of the 100 club, and being on the cruise, will make me work even harder so that I have another chance to win a fabulous holiday. As an employer Newcross reward you well for your achievements."

Area manager Rose Lee was delighted that an employee from her area won the trip and said:

 "Violet thoroughly deserves her place in the club and is in it again this year. She represents the company in a professional and consistent manner. Violet provides a great service to the Hamilton clients and is always available to assist/ support the team. Violet always strives to find a 'better way' and asks questions to continuously improve her performance."

At Newcross we reward those staff that demonstrate excellent behaviours in their roles and are seen as great ambassadors for our organisation.

Well done Voilet!
