We're introducing the Silly Billy Award where you, as Ennead employees, nominate your co-workers for silly things you caught them doing. So during the month, when you come across some “silliness”, I want you to email me at LiesleD@ennead.co.za with the full scoop. I'll keep the nominations and by the end of the month I'll announce the winner of the Silly Billy Award in the newsletter! And naturally I'll include the details as to what they did to deserve the award. Keep a sharp eye out and let's have some fun!
When? 24 September Where? At the Hockey Farm Time: 10:00 – 16:00 Who? You and your partner and your kidz. What? A day of games and fun and laughter and bonding! Why? Do we need a reason to get together with our colleagues and have a blast? Food and transport will be arranged - just bring your own drinks or buy them from the club. More information to follow…SOON! Please let your supervisor know if you will come so that we can prepare a budget.
Claudine represented Mpumalanga at the Inter-Provincial Hockey Tournament in held in Randburg in August! Well played!!
Jaco Botha got his CMII certiﬁcation this month! Nicely done!!
On 17 August all the supervisors (minus one absentee) got together at head ofﬁce for a pow-wow with Claudine, Nomkhosi and Liesle. The focus was on empowering your supervisors to be the best leaders they can be for you. There was a minimum of head-butting and a lot of laughs and the outcome of the meeting was a positive one. This is what some of the supervisors had to say: - Great meeting for bouncing ideas and directing trafﬁc! - Loyalty and professionalism to our company is key! Anything that makes anyone unhappy just needs to be discussed with management if it involves management. – - If we know what makes one unhappy, we can try to ﬁx it. If we know what makes one happy, we can try to keep it that way. – - Too little time for all the issues, but affective. Must do it more often…. -
Just a quick note to answer a question that seems to be on many lips – the increases that Ennead awarded were not performance-based - contrary to what the increase letters said. We apologize for the error.
