SBS celebrating success

Smith Brothers Stores recently held an event to celebrate its staff and the roll they play in businesses success. The event took place at the East Midlands Conference Centre on the June 29.

Tony and Steve Smith celebrating with staff.

The evening allowed staff to invite their partners to join the celebrations. About 70 per cent of Smith Brothers total staff was in attendance, with around 450 people present and just under 250 of those being members of staff.

Due to the successful launch of the service awards at CS4, SBS has continued it ever since, and it was no different at CS5. There were 12 people this year that qualified for their 10 year milestone, as well as one person reaching the incredible milestone of 25 years working at Smith Brothers. All of these staff members were awarded with a letter, certificate and gift, allowing the company to show its gratitude for their loyalty.

During the speeches, the SBS directors challenged everyone to a game of heads and tails, where the employees had to guess the outcome of a flipped coin. After the room was whittled down to just two people, it was a 50/50 chance of winning the prize. On this occasion it was £1,000 in £5 notes in honour of the event title - CS5. However, in the SBS spirit, the two finalists decided to split the prize between them.

Following the formalities of the event, the entertainment ensued. The staff were able to enjoy magicians, the tribute act Re-Take That, a silent disco, games and Caricaturist’s.

Re-Take That kicked off the entertainment, followed by the highly requested silent disco. Games available included: Pac-Man, table football, Batak reaction and 'crack the code.'

The winner of Batak was Danielle Fowell, who had the highest score of 50 on the game. Since no-one cracked the code, Danielle was given the secret code to win the £50 note. The runner up was Adam Walters with a score of 47, who won a bottle of Champagne.

Smith Brothers would like to thank its members of staff for their dedication and hard work they put into the business on a daily basis.
