Our annual company conference is one of the main highlights for the staff here at FMB. This year's conference was held on Friday (6th February). Our office closed for the day, and our 35 strong team boarded the train and headed to Zurich’s impressive offices in Glasgow.
Employee of the Year
Our staff vote for a peer they believe has shown outstanding commitment to the FMB team during the year. Always a closely guarded secret until the day of the conference, we are pleased to announce this year's winner is Sarah Allen.
Along with the title; Sarah will receive 2 days additional holiday, a designated car parking space and a day out and overnight stay tailored to her equestrian interests. Sarah was very surprised, but we are not. Well done from us all and we hope you enjoy your prize.
Each year we always astounded by the loyalty of our staff and it's a great time to celebrate it. This year Chris Hill received his 10 year long service award while Chris Binks joined the elite ranks of our long serving staff with 25 years under her belt.
The day started with presentations from Liz Beavis, Gill Forrester, Ruth Power and Karen Dickinson about what we have achieved during the last year and what direction the company will be taking in the next twelve months to five years. They also touched upon 2014's staff success including recognition awards, examination success and where our current fundraising total stands for our local charity, Sandgate Hydrotherapy Pool.
We went on to enjoy the sights of Glasgow in our very own open top tour bus and finish with a few drinks and nibbles at Carluccios restaurant before the majority of the team caught the train back home.
We always find the conference a perfect opportunity to thank all the FMB team for their hard work over the past year and their continued support to build on our success!
