Over 2012 the UK has enjoyed a series of inspirational and motivational events – including the London 2012 Festival, London Olympics and Paralympics, The Open and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Team Morson got into the national spirit, and devised a Games of its own – with three fantastic prizes.

Inspired by the London 2012 Olympics, Morson introduced its ‘Team Morson’ initiative throughout the company, encouraging its many divisions to get into the sporting spirit by picking an Olympic country – at random – to represent throughout the summer.

Spurring the teams on was the opportunity to achieve Golden Tickets based on targets set within the company, and a subsequent place in the grand prize draw in October.

Embracing the international ethos of the Olympic Games, Team Morson hopefuls could expect to win one of three fantastic holidays in locations across the world.

Bronze medallists would collect a luxury UK break in a location of their choice, whilst the winner in second place would scoop an exciting break in one of several European destinations. The Gold prize, however, was an incredible trip to Las Vegas, USA, or Dubai, UAE.

Team Morson is an excellent motivator – I was delighted to win!

Ged Mason, CEO of Morson, led the prize draw on Friday 19th October. Teams across the UK were linked up via conference call to hear the winners announced, who were as follows:

Bronze – Jayne Cavan, Branch Administrator, Barrow-in-Furness

Silver – Rhona Manson, Branch Manager, Thurso

Gold – Kate Derrick, Recruitment Consultant, Filton

Winner of the Gold prize, Kate Derrick, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to win this prize; I returned from conducting a site visit to receive a call from a colleague telling me I had won – I couldn’t believe it, and can’t wait for my trip!”

In Thurso, Scotland, Rhona Manson won Silver, and comments: “Team Morson is an excellent motivator. I was delighted to win Silver and I will be sharing my prize with my colleague, Donna, in an effort to maintain the ‘team spirit’ ethos that the initiative inspired.”

Jayne Cavan, winner of a luxury UK break and Team Morson’s Bronze prize, said: “I was completely shocked and couldn’t believe my name had been read out – I never win anything! I’m taking a trip to London and can’t wait.”
