From exchanging gifts to pulling out our best Christmas jumpers, Olivia takes us through how ProspectSoft have been getting into the Festive spirit!
With the festive season already upon us, here at ProspectSoft we’ve been getting involved in a load of activities to mark the occasion! From the placement Secret Santa gift giving to the Christmas party in Oxford, not even COVID managed to get in the way of the festivities!
Placements Secret Santa
This year, the placements at ProspectSoft came together to hold our own Secret Santa. Names were drawn from a hat, and the hunt began for exciting presents. Despite a hybrid of working from the office and our homes, we were still able to find a way of exchanging gifts. With a little research and a lot of wrapping later, the presents we were ready to go. This year’s Secret Santa was a huge success with presents ranging from cocktail making books to a disposable camera and a tote bag!
ProspectSoft Christmas Party
What better way to come together and get in the festive spirit than a Christmas party?! This year’s event exceeded all expectations. Planned by our Marketing team and hosted at Brasserie Blanc in Oxford, we pulled out all the stops! The team dressed to impress with sparkly Christmas dresses, smart ties and high heels. With lots of drinks, dancing and delicious food, this year’s Christmas party was a night to remember!
Christmas Jumper Day
To continue the festivities, we all dressed up and took part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day! Whether it was an old favourite Christmas jumper or tinsel garlands to look the part, our team got in the Christmas spirit and even raised some money for charity along the way! Despite the pandemic preventing us being in the office together, we united on Teams for a Christmassy quiz. We instantly saw some department rivalry emerge, but the crown went to the Premium Services Team this year! It was great to come together, even virtually, to get in the Christmas spirit and raise money for an incredible cause.
As you can probably tell, we had so much fun coming together to get in the festive spirit and despite some challenges, reflect on what has been a truly brilliant and successful year. On behalf of the whole team at ProspectSoft, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year - bring on 2022!
