Sizzling Summer Snapshots: Swindon, Walsall & Nuremberg
This summer at FLEETCOR, we've been holding summer events across all of our sites to celebrate our employee's hard work and the (mostly) lovely weather! With a host of different, exciting venues, delicious food and flowing drinks, it's safe to say our employees have had a great time. Make sure to stay tuned for more posts in our Sizzling Summer Snapshots series on our Employee Blogs and social media. But for now, read on to find out what our Swindon, Walsall and Nuremberg sites got up to!
At the end of July, the Swindon office celebrated the glorious hot weather with their annual summer party. An impressive 118 FLEETCOR employees headed to the Royal Oak in Swindon to taste the collection of gin - and tonics - they had on offer. The night started 7.30pm and by 8.30 the bar was packed; the atmosphere was fantastic, people were socialising and had the opportunity to speak to other employees they may not interact with on a day to day level. By 11pm, when the Royal Oak closed its doors, many people were upset that the night was drawing to a close and a few people headed into Old Town together to continue the night. Our Social Committee superbly thought out the venue, from drink vouchers to the mouth watering buffet and the venue itself, which offered enough choice to brave a new drink or stick to classic favourites.
Last month, we held a summer barbeque for our employees to celebrate almost a year in our new office! The BBQ took place outside. Despite the weather being lovely leading up to the event, at midday it decided to rain (typical) which meant the decorations we put up got soaked! Luckily, later in the day the sun came out and we were still able to hold it. The BBQ started at 3pm and around 20 employees attended. To keep things exciting, we organised a raffle where three lucky employees had the opportunity to win Amazon vouchers; our winners were Anastasia Sandu, Fabian Spitz and Reka Wolf.
Here at Walsall, we organised a British seaside themed BBQ at the end of July which did not disappoint; employees enjoyed seaside grub such as fish and chips and ice cream, got competitive in a host of fun games and even had the chance to test out the rodeo and slide down the helter-skelter. Despite having wall to wall sunshine for the past three months, in typical Brit style it rained. However, if you look on the bright side, the weather did fit perfectly with the British seaside theme!
