WORLD CUP World cup spirit and colour exploded across the contact centre during the World cup, bring the team and competitive spirit of world cup into Damart.
Damart launches charity fund for staff Damart currently donates to many good causes, including Breast Cancer and Heart Research UK. As part of our ongoing commitment to local good causes, we have decided to launch a Damart Sponsorship Fund, which will be used to support local charities or good causes close to your heart. Damart will set aside an amount of money each year to support the wide-variety of fund raising activities which we know you are involved in. You will be able to apply for money to be used towards local charitable events/ initiatives. Each request accepted will then be followed up by an article in Team Spirit, to help raise even more awareness for your chosen charity. Further details about this scheme will be on Damart-TV, DamartNet and notice boards around the business. For further information contact Jo Wood on ext 6372. Application forms will also be available on DamartNet.
maginations and creativity ran wild during the Contact Centre initiative, creating some real vibrancy in the department. The teams went to extraordinary lengths to decorate their workspaces after randomly selecting a competing world cup country from a draw. When the teams country was playing the team was then allowed to dress down (prior to the revised casual dress policy). The judges Jeanette Askin and Neil Hirst were so impressed they decided on three winners, each team winning a meal at Pizza Hut. Congratulations to Holland (Green team), Brazil (Pink Team) and Mexico (Credit Team). The decorations remained throughout the entire tournament and generated a real buzz. Also as part of the world cup initiative the Contact Centre also ran the ‘Special Offer Conversion Cup!’ Teams were assigned groups. They then played fixtures against each other based on their special offer sales that day. As the tournament progressed, the two surviving teams were the Lavender team and the Cream team. The Lavender team were the winners and were presented with a trophy and £150 in vouchers. Neil Hirst said “The world cup initiative has been a great success, everyone in the contact centre made an amazing effort to decorate their team areas!
Media Coverage With summer drawing to an end we can safely say that our SS10 Collection has proved extremely popular. The biggest fashion buy of the season was the colour block maxi dress, a real hit amongst our customers becoming a must have item. And there’s more to come as we launch the AW10 collection which is all about the key catwalk trends. We predict that the long-line cardigans and great range of winter coats will be just as popular.
