A Toast to the Year!

SA Oil held a Mellow Yellow themed year-end function to wrap up 2019. It was time to sit back and unwind with good food and even better company at 1904 Bistro Américain. Our mellow afternoon consisted of light chatter, American bistro-styled meals and to round things off – awards were in order! Here’s how it went…

Tropical Treats and Good Eats

Pineapple styled jam jars and cocktail pre-mixes greeted the team upon arrival. Seated and ready to unwind, a three-course meal was enjoyed between the light chatter amongst colleagues. After a slow-paced afternoon of chilled vibes, drinks and appetizing meals, it was time to hand out awards. Not only did we reveal the grand prize for our Most Valued Player of 2019 but awarded our Superbru winner and Most Improved Player in our SA Oil team. What a way to wrap up the year!

What is Our Most Valued Player Award?

Throughout the year, we’ve hosted team building events to encourage our members to get to know each other, and to encourage a little healthy competition! The winner of each of our team building games or activities earned ten points. The team member with the most MVP points at the end of the year was awarded the title of Most Valued Player 2019. The prize for this year’s competition is a weekend away for two at Nambithi Private Game Reserve. Not too shabby!

Why Have a Year-End Function?

End of the year office parties are a great way to improve employee relationships, showcase the company’s culture and celebrate the year gone by. There are many reasons why year-end functions are important to any company. Here are our top three:

Strengthen Work Relationships

A year-end function gives employees, from all levels of the company, an opportunity to engage with one another outside of the typical work environment setting.  The more people connect, the stronger the work relationship. Nurturing work relationships can build a more dynamic, bonded team for the year ahead.

Acknowledgement of Employees

End of year functions are a great way to give back to employees. It is the perfect opportunity to show appreciation for their hard work, loyalty and celebrate the company’s achievements.

Reward and recognition

Year-end functions give companies a chance to recognize individuals that have outperformed throughout the year. Awarding individuals for their year-round hard work and dedication keeps employees motivated and drives others to perform better the following year.

Happy Employees are More Productive!

Demonstrating appreciation in the form of a year-end function is a very powerful tool and a great motivator for employees. Here, at SA Oil, office events play a key role in our company culture. Are you looking to join the SA Oil team? Send us your CV!
