On Saturday 12th August, Acorn held their annual general meeting at Ascot racecourse. This year was all about celebrating our employees and giving them something back for all the hard work they do for us. The meeting was held in the morning, followed by a fun afternoon of racing and a party in the park in the evening!

This year, as it was all about our employees, we launched our first ever Building Trust awards which celebrated our employees’ success throughout the past 12 months.

Each of our six values were measured against our peoples’ nominations and the seventh winner was for our overall Building Trust award.

Congratulations to our seven winners who were all very deserving for their awards and prizes:
  • Gemma Brady - Respecting Each Other
  • Harry Dowling-Lucas - Supporting our Business
  • Vicky Palmer - Growth Mindset
  • Jane Chun - A Happy Place
  • Colin Powell - Pride in our Work
  • Claire Mobey - Equality
  • Sergei Naumovs - Building Trust

The celebrations continued long into the evening and our teams were entertained by the Party in the Park which included Craig David, All Saints and Feeder.

Jon Coiley, Managing Director commented “It has been a really fantastic and successful day. I am so pleased with the turnout and everyone who attended looked like they had a great time celebrating working for a fantastic company. We shall definitely be doing this again next year.’
