Dalex Finance has rewarded another set of its best-performing staff with a one-week all-expenses-paid leisure trip to the beautiful Arabian city of Dubai.
The first four lucky winners were drawn from the Upper East, Upper West, Brong Ahafo, Ashanti and Northern Regions, and announced amid cheers from a visibly excited workforce during the company’s Northern Sector Sales Conference held at the Unity Hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in the Ashanti Region about three weeks ago. They include James Arthur, Ziibu Mohammed, David Mawuli Hoezadey and Mercy Hoezadey.
The other four were from the Volta, Eastern, Western, Greater Accra and Central Regions and also unveilled and similarly honoured at the two-day Southern Sector Sales Conference held in Accra over the weekend.
The winners for the southern sector include Eugenia Aniaku Quaye, Frederick Baah, Wisdom Gbelewu and Millicent Mensah.
This brings to eight the total number of winners embarking on the recreational trip, which covers air-ticket, accommodation, meal, funds for sight-seeing and shopping, among others.
Over fifty other employees who distinguished themselves in their respective roles were presented with cash and other prizes – including television sets, laptops and high-end mobile phones – as rewards for their hard work.
Explaining the rationale for the conference and award scheme, Chief Executive Officer of Dalex Finance Ken Thompson said: “There is a direct correlation between employee recognition and performance; that is why we encourage and generously reward excellence.
“This is the fourth time we are rewarding our staff with spectacular prizes, and it gives us pleasure that for many of our staff coming from rural and peri-urban areas: we provide them this amazing opportunity to travel outside the country. It is a culture at Dalex, and we will continue to explore innovative means of incentivising our workforce,” he added.
The two-day conference brought together over 2000 employees and agents from the Greater Accra, Central, Eastern, Western and Volta Regions.
There were a lot of fun-games which sparked the competitive spirit of various teams from the regions. The games included soccer, tug-of-war, and turnaround-relay, and were held at the Ajax Park of the University of Ghana, Legon, for both males and females.
In the men’s soccer competition final, the team from Eastern Region defeated a combined team of Central and Western Regions 5-4 on penalties to lift the trophy, after a 0-0 score-line within regulation time.
At the end of all sporting activities, the team from Eastern Region was crowned overall winner, after dominating in all the categories.
