With the ongoing pandemic and like many other companies at the moment, we have had to put our annual Christmas celebrations on hold. Usually, we are able to socialise with all of our colleagues within different teams throughout the company. Everybody looks forward to this time of year – renewing acquaintances, having fun and seeing what presents Secret Santa brings!
In order to alleviate disappointment and bring some Christmas cheer to the team, every member of staff has received a hamper of specialist Derbyshire farmers produce as a token of our appreciation for their efforts supporting our candidates and clients this year.
The hampers were produced and sent by an excellent Derbyshire based company, Sauced Here, run by Luke Osbourne who has previously worked in the pharmaceutical industry.
One of CK’s Directors, Liam O’Connell, said “our staff have been brilliant during this troubled year. I have always appreciated their efforts but 2020 has made me very proud, seeing how they have gone above and beyond in supporting clients and candidates. It has been a pleasure working with Luke and the team at Sauced Here to help the hampers reach our colleagues throughout the UK, Switzerland and as far as Malta. We are all looking forward to 2021 as life starts to return to normal.”
Some of our staff have already been putting the hamper to use and getting stuck in creating some delicious treats. Rebecca Skelton, one of CK’s Senior Compliance Officers, made a pie with her strawberry and vanilla conserve.
However you are spending the festive period this year, we are wishing you a safe Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We look forward to working with all of our clients and candidates again in 2021, as well as welcoming back our employees to our offices when it is safe to do so.
