In the third week of January Pickwick’s senior managers from around the country came together for 3 days in Brisbane for their annual ‘Kick-off’ meeting. The meeting reviews and reflects on the achievements and areas for development of the year just gone along with we can improve and do better in the year ahead for our customers, our staff and the Company as a whole. One afternoon of the meeting was allocated to a corporate challenge in which the senior team was divided into 3 groups and participated in a range of brain teasers and physical tests around the Brisbane River. CEO Ken Holder noted that while great fun was had by all, the challenges reinforced the importance of teamwork in delivering excellence. He added “business today is just too complex for anyone person to do alone and I’m very fortunate to be surrounded by such a talented team.”
It’s not often in this industry we get to celebrate two milestones. Pam Corsar, one of our more senior cleaners recently celebrated 10 years’ service with Pickwick and not only that, Pam is quite happy to tell you she is 79 years old and still going strong! Pam has been at one of our many Bendigo Bank branches for over 8 years after reducing the hours that she was working in the earlier years with Pickwick. She is greatly admired and treasured by the bank staff. Whist she admits to the occasional minor health issue she is “back on the job” that she loves so much.
With the odd change in our portfolio management, Pam has worked with several Client Services Managers who had organised a special anniversary morning tea. Clarissa Wilton (now Business Development Manager) and Sandra Phillips (Client Services Manager) helped celebrate the occasion. We are so happy you still work with us Pam and we look forward to many more years.
