Retail property management and development organisation Intu has rewarded its employees for their achievements through its national employee recognition scheme.
The organisation, which employs 2,500 members of staff, held the first award ceremony for its Win Your Dream scheme on 3 March, when the national winner received the gift of their choice up to a value of £10,000. The first national winner of the new employee recognition scheme, Aaron Brett, chose a Rolex as his dream prize.
The scheme rewards staff that have lived the brand’s values and gone above and beyond to demonstrate these values to customers, colleagues, tenants or members of the public.
Intu employees can nominate their colleagues for a monthly award, which consists of a golden envelope containing an Intu gift card. One monthly winner from each of the organisation’s sites is put forward for a quarterly prize worth £1,000, and an independent panel then reviews the quarterly winners and two wildcards to select a national winner.
David Fischel, chief executive at Intu, said: “The first year of Win Your Dream has exceeded all our expectations; every month we’ve seen some truly inspirational nominations coming through.
“We know that our staff are pretty special but even we have been amazed by both the attitudes and actions of our employees. Just three years on from the launch of Intu, our employees really are living and breathing our brand promise and our values.”
