An Audience with the Directors and Annual Awards Ceremony

Reflex hosts its first Audience with the Directors and Annual Awards ceremony

Over 20 awards at the esteemed event celebrated staff success and commitment across 2022

Reflex Vehicle Hire held its first Audience with the Directors event and Annual Awards ceremony on Friday 2 December 2022.

During the day, staff were welcomed at the Radisson Blu, East Midlands Airport for the final Reflexion meeting of 2022.

The meeting concluded the monthly Reflexion meetings which are held at Reflex’s Head Office in Loughborough with the aim of informing all employees on the position of the business and the plans moving forward.  Reflex co-owners, Oliver Waring and Lisa Spong alongside Directors, Martin Tyers and Daman Sandhu, deliver the meetings monthly to ensure seamless communication while allowing opportunities for collaborative working and contribution.

During the daytime event, staff were presented with the opportunity to personally ask the business owners and Directors questions and putting them in the hot seat to deliver a response. Discussions involved the cost-of-living crisis as well as an insight into the business’s 5-year plan.

Following on from this, the business’s Employee Support Package was delivered which informed staff of the plan to help alleviate the pressures of the rising cost-of-living. The Directors established a three step plan for all Reflex employees to benefit from.

Staff took the opportunity to network amongst their peers and took part in a teambuilding activity, which saw the room get extremely competitive.

Once the meeting concluded, our Reflex Awards commenced later in the evening. Guests joined for the glamorous ceremony to celebrate staff success by highlighting teams and individuals for their hard work throughout the year and their dedication and commitment towards Reflex’s core values.

Winners and Highly Commended were announced by the Directors, Senior Leaders and Management on the evening. Our leaders were joined on stage by sponsors such as the AA, Kwik Fit, Complete Vehicle Accessories, Reflec Signs and Anthony James Insurance Brokers.

The judging was extremely tough due to the fantastic efforts all employees have shown this year. Through challenging times, staff have pushed forward and worked round obstacles to maintain a first-class service for customers and deliver exceptional results.

We want to thank AA, Kwik Fit, Complete Vehicle Accessories, Reflec Signs and Anthony James Insurance Brokers for sponsoring our first event. Their support means a great deal to Reflex.

We look forward to future events, where we hope to welcome new faces to the Reflex team and celebrate more deserving winners.
