Following a successful 2018 event it was time again to bring together members of #TeamHemlow at our annual company away day!

As Hemlow continues to grow we now have over 115 staff members working across the UK, therefore we believe it is very important to hold these events to help bring the team together.

In order to decide how the day was spent we put the power in their hands! Employees were given a number of activity options and a vote was opened, which saw Go-Karting come out on top!

So on October 5th Team Hemlow descended upon Revolution Karting based in London, ready to take to the tracks!

Following some practice laps (where things already started to get a little bit competitive, as it was identified that there may have been a professional racer or two among us!) everyone was split into teams ready to start their relay races!

And they were off! Despite a few minor crashes, a couple of spin outs, and one racer entering the track with their charging cable still attached to the back of their car! The races were a great success and the teams worked together to try and gain the fastest times!

Having worked up an appetite the team were then treated to a BBQ and beers before the winning teams took to the podium, all hoping to secure the top spot and take home the Lewis Hemlowton Trophy!

“It was great to see new and long term employees networking together, also it was good for the engineers to meet fellow colleagues from other areas of the company. Events like these are important to keep all Hemlow employees feeling part of this brilliant team which myself and the other Directors are very proud of. It was also fun to see who was the quickest!”
Tom, Associate Director

“It was a brilliant day, when a company grows and expands, its easy to lose connection with its employees, its a great idea to hold these events as it gives time for employees to build and grow relationships with each other”
Jack, Lead Engineer

 

It was a fantastic day enjoyed by all and we are already looking forward to the next one!

Thank you to our MD and the team at Revolution Karting for a great event and to our Marketing Administrator for organising the day.
