Celebrating 2023 in Ōtautahi14 December 2023
2023 is coming to an end and our Ōtautahi kaimahi got together to celebrate all that they've achieved this year with a festive Christmas party at New Brighton Surf Club.
Reflecting back on the year and celebrating our successes with our people is important to us and it was great to kick back and enjoy a social event together. This year we also acknowledged the 40 year milestone of Switched On Group, which was founded by Geoff Hughes the same year our CE, his son, Chris Hughes was born. Our wonderful People & Culture Administrator created a 3-tiered cake to mark the occasion which was a special gesture appreciated by all.
Our Ōtautahi team shared kai, cake and christmas crackers as well as acknowledging our values champions with an award ceremony overlooking the panoramic view of the beach.
Each year our people nominate recipients awards that reflect our values to be presented in front of their peers and we're proud to announce our Christchurch winners for 2023!
