The Grovelands AWR team will be ensuring all staff are aware of the Agency Workers Regulations, which have been forecast to have the greatest impact on the recruitment world to date.
With the implementation date of the Agency Workers Regulations, October 1st, fast approaching, the Grovelands AWR team decided it was crucial to ensure all Grovelanders were aware of the legislation that has been forecast to have the greatest impact on the recruitment world to date.
So what better way to emphasise the importance of AWR than to put Grovelands knowledge to the test in a Tuesday morning meeting- AWR- University Challenge style- quiz?! Holding the proud position of Quiz Master, I announced the 8 Grovelanders from across the business that I had secretly chosen to be contestants, split them into two teams and calmed the excited crowd as the fight to become AWR champions began!
Team One’s quiz name was decided by Mr Ives, pronouncing his favourite team name ever as Quizzle my Nizzle, whilst DJ opted to incorporate one of his childhood heroes into Team Two’s quiz name resulting in them becoming Quiz Eubank. Failing to find any musical instruments the night before to use as buzzers, both teams had to choose an animal noise; Quizzle my Nizzle went for a very Grovelands apt “quack” whilst Quiz Eubank tried to make Mark Davies feel at home with an “Oink Oink”.
Following some X Factor voting and an appearance from a somewhat northern Simon Cowell earlier in the meeting, the audience were fired up, with each “quack” and “oink” filling the studio (aka Grovelands office) with cheers, oohs, aahs and the occasional “Moo” (one of the team members struggled to get to grips with their selected buzzer noise). Much to Hannah Moss’ pleasure (deliverer of the AWR training the week before) it was instantly obvious all Grovelanders were extremely AWR clued up and it became more a challenge of speed to “oink” or “quack” first!
As the quiz drew to a close, Quizzle my Nizzle were almost touching victory, however with Quiz Eubank successfully answering the final question, which offered multiple points, a tie was declared, although Kieran has felt the need every day this week to state he is adamant that Quizzle my Nizzle were robbed!
In a follow up to our previous AWR blog (Are We Ready), I can reassuringly now say…Yes We Are!
