BGL Group launches luxury prize draw for employees

Ten prizes per month, from iPad to a star prize worth £3000

PETERBOROUGH-based BGL Group has launched a brand new monthly prize draw open to each of its 2150 employees across the UK.

The company’s first ten winners were announced last month, and were thrilled to take home prizes ranging from luxury weekend breaks to shopping and holiday vouchers. Each month also sees one lucky winner secure a ‘star prize’, with 40 options to choose from. Star prizes include a weekend’s shopping trip to New York, a family holiday to Lapland, centre court Wimbledon tickets, a Bang and Olufsen stereo or even your cleaning and ironing done for a whole year!

The new draw was introduced to give a new level of spontaneity and fun to working at the BGL Group.

Cheryl Clifford, board director, said: “BGL Group can be a demanding, dynamic and fast-paced place to work, and it’s important that our people feel that this is balanced with a sense of how much they are valued by the organisation. We wanted to introduce something new that would reach as many people as possible, thank them for their hard work and introduce a sense of fun, surprise and spontaneity. The initiative has generated great excitement and appeals to employees at every level and office location across the group.”

The prize draw is open to all employees across the group and winners are selected at random by an automated selection tool. People that have been with the group for five years or more receive two entries per month into the draw, while those with ten years’ service or more gain a total of four entries.
