Guess we'll never get to meet though uniformdating.com after all.
it was the only possible way too
about music/internet use or similar for your dissertation, that's fine too.
had a some nice little trophys but more importantly they came with a cash award as well.
I am a valued employee.
but at an industry awards thing something I recommended, created, then implemented was (in a round about way) nominated for an award as best innovation and my manager took the credit for all of it. I imagined kicking off would make me look like a right 'tater though
Those 'recently spotted here' lists at RSPB reserves...they're made up bollocks, right?
they DIDN'T recently spot a bittern at Wicken Fen?
we heard a woodpecker knocking on wood today and a tawny owl singing Radiohead songs on Monday.
£80 Amazon voucher.
I had previously asked for a pay rise and I think they gave me this so I would shut up about the pay rise (I didn't).
Pretty superficial place you work.
but I'm ineligible for most of them (have done some work on sorting out some of the nominees though) so it is pretty unlikely I will get one. But everyone of my grade and above must attend.
billy no nominations
For not leaving.
Did some good auditing a while back, got £50 in M&S Vouchers.
3 years in a row.
2013 was a close call but fitted in plenty of bellendry in Q4 to bring home the awards bacon.
Got a certificate thing at tesco when I worked there for 100% attendance during a year when I just didn't turn up for work a couple of times with no excuse.
Free trip to the US to collect my award too.
I'm hot shit, me!
th ebest one was where I jumped up and punched the air, burst the zip on my dress, and had to walk to the stage like a crab with my back to the side wall so nobody would see my bum cleavage (you couldn't wear pants under this dress.)
Regeneration lawyer of the Year award. what was a bit funny is that i'm not rlaly a regeneration lawyer., but i| did manage a big Regen project. Still a bit embarrassing. And I've had the dress repaired (it was vivienne westwood- not one to throw out) and it now has a zip of kevlar. And if i'm at a ceremnoy where I'm 99% sure I've not won something, I'll still decline a second bread role *just incase* the same thing happens.
Strangely exhilarating. My boss took all the credit in his interview in the industry press even though I was the project lead on the project wot won it. Holy Christ he's a fucking prick.
but they quickly ushered us off stage. They were scared of my truth.
and were you naked at the time?
I bet you didn't even win an award, and it wasn't even an awards ceremony.
Admit it, you got naked on the bar at Wetherspoons and got chucked out.
Got over £350 in voucher cash this year alone.
Not won one of the annual awards yet though, I can only assume because it has been deemed to be beneath me
I've applied 4 times. Got turned down 4 times.
When it was 3 times, that was a company record. Now it's (just been declared) 4 times. FOUR TIMES. FOUR YEARS. NO BONUS.
Fuck that place. Glad I'm leaving.
and it's a long boring process of statements and evidence gathering.
Puts lots of people off. Also, when you get rejected, it really puts you off.
recognising your own good work because no-one else is going to
Depends how your company does it - pretty shit culture at your work if it's seen that way.
and give it a little nibble?
yes it's very obvious that saying you're above petty oneupmanship is definitely not petty oneupmanship
don't know why i bother sometimes
Came with £300 in Amazon vouchers
I can be whatever you want me to be
always more token than anything.
Have had 2 bonus' here, but have only been here 4 months, but they're not awards as such.
For the company who owned the café I worked at during college / art foundation. Think I got around £200, can't remember how much really, think it was in cash as well.
one of the partners emailed round some people asking whether having internal awards and stuff would help morale cos it's a bit crap right now. the fact he only emailed some people and not others, making the others feel left out, didn't help morale.
at the British Travel Awards. By the time the ceremony rolled around I had left, leaving it to my successor to go to the swanky bash and collect the award from the dad from Outnumbered and mock the week. Should've been me up there!
employee of the month at some point in 2002/3. Mostly as a reaction to my heroically diligent tidying up of the bomb-site-a-like film and game stock room. Four cans of Guinness if I iirc.
the best thing about it was that it was colleagues that nominated me. got a trophy / plaque thing and a (work related) book
