Distributor turned Milton Keynes head office into a samba-inspired celebration for launch of this year’s Presidents Club rewards scheme
Ingram Micro UK will whisk a number of its staff off to Rio de Janeiro as part of its 2016 Presidents Club rewards scheme.
The distributor unveiled this year’s reward with a samba-inspired launch event, transforming the fourth floor of its Milton Keynes head office into a Brazilian carnival on May 12.
Ingram Micro live performances from carnival dancers, a rainforest entrance walk way and an indoor remodel of Copacabana Beach. It hosted similar events for staff at its offices in Daventry and Crick last week.
Last year’s Presidents Club saw the distributor take a number of staff and 12 vendor partners to South Africa on a trip that included shark dives, safaris, Harley Davidson rides and a trip to the top of Table Mountain.
This year, The President’s Club is being sponsored by Dell, Canon, Epson, LG, HPE, HP, Lenovo, D-Link, Cisco, Jabra, Acer and Microsoft. Staff are rewarded for achieving sales targets within the business.
Ingram Micro UK and Ireland VP & Country Chief Executive Brent McCarty said: “We are incredibly excited to be able to reveal Rio as the destination for Presidents Club 2016. The input from vendors and our Ingram colleagues after the last trip has been incredible and we are certain that this year’s Presidents Club will energise the entire Ingram workforce and help build and maintain excellent relationships with participating vendors.
“We pride ourselves on being an organisation dedicated to our work and it is wonderful to be able to reward those employees who go the extra mile, with such a brilliant incentive.”
