  • Top performing Morson employees earn weekend trip in #MorMiles incentive

  • Over 30 people from across the Morson Group were taken on an expenses paid trip to New York

In early October, over 30 Morson Group employees from across all departments of the business were treated to an amazing trip to New York as a reward for winning the #MorMiles incentive.

Launched at the 2018 annual conference, the #MorMiles incentive recognised achievement throughout the year in both recruitment and support capacities, with employees earning Air Miles towards a ticket on the plane. The lucky winners, nominated by line managers each month, enjoyed a weekend of seeing the best of the Big Apple.

After arriving at JFK Airport, employees travelled to the hotel for drinks and food. Paul Stroud, Lead Consultant within the construction team, recounts the trip.

“The first night it was just a case of people seeing how long they could stay awake given the time difference!"

The next morning saw the group heading to the 9/11 memorial at the site of the former World Trade Centre in Lower Manhattan. Just a short walk from the memorial was Wall Street and several other notable landmarks that the group visited.

“From there we went to the Empire State Building and up to the viewing platform at the top. The view was magnificent. Then it was time to head to Chelsea pier to be picked up by private boat.”

The boat ride took the group around the bay, under the famous bridges and past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Onboard were drinks, a sit-down meal and a DJ. 

“For the evening, Ged had rented the penthouse at the top of the hotel for a party. Everyone was encouraged to ‘bring a bottle’ but there were plenty of people well-oiled from the boat trip!”

Saturday daytime was free time for the group to see the sights themselves across the city. In the evening, the group ate at a restaurant local to their hotel, Bagatelle. “The restaurant gradually turns into a bar. Everyone really went for it on the Saturday night and had a great time!”

Congratulations to all Morson employees who won a place on the trip this year.
