Incentive Days

Does your company pride itself on looking after its employee? What about rewarding them with a super-fun day at work?

Also called “happy days”, “smiley days” or “fab Fridays”, incentive days are becoming more and more popular, with some employers making them regular events. Surprise treats and light entertainment are brought into the workplace and organised around the work schedule.

These events are great fun and will add to the perception that your company is a great place to work.

“Thank you for being great” – Fun Day Fridays at Whirlpool 

From the 1st of June 2018, Whirlpool has been bringing fun and laughter to their Peterborough call centre by way of saying ‘thank you’ to their employees for their hard work.

Every week, Ace Tones have been providing a new entertaining activity. Meant not only to delight but also to surprise, the activities are a closely guarded secret, raising not a little speculation before they are revealed each Friday. Treats like ice cream, popcorn and candy floss, and games including the Batak Wall, Anky Racing… but shh! we can say no more, as some of the events are yet to happen!

What we can say is that we have had wonderful feedback from Whirlpool employees.

 

Incentive days at Amazon Peterborough

Ace Tones have been working with Amazon since 2016, supplying corporate entertainment to various branches across the UK. In the summer of 2017, Ace Tones started working with Amazon’s Peterborough branch, organising staff incentive days.

The 10th to 17th July 2017 was Amazon Prime week. As anyone may guess, it is a very busy time for the online retailer. Amazon wanted to say ‘thank you’ to their staff for their sterling effort.

Ace Tones set up an entertainment hot spot in the cafeteria. An interactive light chasing table sparked countless fun competitions among colleagues. The photo booth proved equally popular, taking hundreds of selfies in fun or exotic surroundings. The popcorn, candy floss and slush puppies machines were replenished often, to deal with unlimited demand.

Following on from the success of the July incentive days, Ace Tones were invited back in November, to help kick off Amazon’s six weeks of Christmas entertainment. On the 22nd of November, an Ace Tones iPad caricaturist spent a day at the Peterborough site, drawing the caricatures of those willing to pose. The digital images were enthusiastically shared and commented on, not only by colleagues, but also by friends and family on social media.

We have used Ace Tones on a number of occasions and we have always been happy with their service. They have responded with creativity and flexibility to our request, tailoring their service to match our needs. They came up with fun activities that proved engaging and inclusive to our employees and have also shown great flexibility in matching Amazon’s shift pattern. We value Ace Tones as our supplier and will be in touch with them again.“  M. Hobson, Amazon Peterborough

Testimonials

Ace Tones helped us celebrate our employee appreciation day, which went smoothly and was enjoyed by everyone, thank you.  

V. Beaton, VioVet

I have been using Ace Tones for a few years now and have always received good service. The office staff are most helpful and have always given me useful advice and ideas. We recently organised a Health Day event. The Giant Operation Game provided light entertainment for the staff and it fitted well with the Health theme.  

T. Clark, John Lewis Peterborough

A MASSIVE thank you to you and your team for their fantastic work on the day of our conference… They were fantastic and it really made our conference special in the way that our Director had envisioned for his first ever conference in the seat as Director. We couldn’t have asked for more from your team, they didn’t stop from the moment they arrived until the time they went home.  Everyone had a fab day and we have received fantastic feedback… I am sure we will be looking to you for assistance once again when next year’s event comes around.

C Sears, BGL Group

Thank you Ace Tones! The team supplied the Batak Wall game, which was enjoyed by the whole office. We recently held a work event for promoting activity and healthy lifestyle. Ace Tones had a number of suggestions for activities we could utilise and felt that Batak Wall was the ideal game for movement, perception and of course competition. A friendly supervisor came early to set up, he encouraged the office to get involved and managed the ever changing leaderboard. We would certainly look at using this company again and would recommend them to everyone. Thanks again Ace Tones and see you soon!
