Retail Assist’s 15th Birthday Party
Retail Assist’s 15th Birthday is today, 16th June. To celebrate we have been taking part in numerous fun activities, including recording our very own song with members of our Help Desk team.
We mixed up the Beatles classic, ‘Help’, re-wrote the lyrics and recorded the results at Rofl Studios in Nottingham. If you would like something to make you laugh, you can view our efforts here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UGtT0Yc3x0.
We hope you are not asking for ‘Help’ after listening to it!
We have also been writing a series of blog posts, entitled ’15 years of RA’ where we have been interviewing all of our team members who have been with Retail Assist since the very beginning. They are definitely worth a read and are sure to make you laugh out loud, you can read them all here: http://www.retail-assist.co.uk/15-years-of-retail-assist.
Planning our 15th Birthday party has also been keeping us busy, and we’ve been having several parties for our different office locations (with more still to come). The Nottingham office party was held at the Pitcher and Piano in Nottingham. The night went really well with lots of lovely food, drinks and great conversation, reminiscing about the last 15 years.
So much has changed in retail throughout the last 15 years and this change is definitely reflected in Retail Assist as a company. There has been a great increase in the number of employees going from a handful of people to now over 200 employees. Based at just one site 15 years ago, Retail Assist is now spread across 6 sites across Northampton, Oxford and London.
So far 13 employees have been with Retail Assist since the very beginning and by the end of 2014 20 Retail Assist employees will have been with us for 10 years.
Today one of our team members based at the Northampton office was our official cake baker, following an earlier ‘bake off’ in the year to bake our official Birthday cake. We are really impressed with her baking efforts and wanted to share this with you:
We have also had a crafting session in place with our customer, Hobbycraft, to make a Birthday card and party hats, so this is one Birthday we won’t forget. Have a look at our crafting efforts below:
Saturday 21st June, will also see many members of the team taking part in X-Runner in Nottingham. So we’ll share the results / mud with you here.
