The night out was attended by Kingdom’s Operations Manager for the Midlands, Satia Rai, and security team along with the IKEA Risk Manager and Business Navigator. We have included some photos from the night out with this article.
Following the night out, Julie Wilson, Safety & Security Manager at IKEA Birmingham, wrote to Satia saying:
“Just a quick thank you for Sunday night, I feel it was a great morale booster especially for the members of the old team that have been supporting and picking up extra hours whilst we get the new guys trained up.
“As you know the turnout was good and the team really enjoyed it as well as myself and Emma. This is the first time they have experienced a Kingdom team night out (this didn’t happen with VSG) and a great chance for the newer and older team to get to know each other properly.
“This has done a lot for the morale of the team. Thank you.”
