BGL Group launches monthly prize draw for staff

The BGL Group has launched a monthly prize draw for its 2,150 employees across the UK as part of efforts to create a fun working atmosphere.

The insurance intermediary’s first ten winners were announced in April, and took home prizes ranging from luxury weekend breaks to shopping and holiday vouchers. 

Each month also sees one winner secure a star prize, with 40 options to choose from, including a weekend’s shopping trip to New York, a family holiday to Lapland, centre court Wimbledon tickets, and a Bang and Olufsen stereo.

The new draw was introduced to give a new level of spontaneity and fun to working at the BGL Group. The prize draw is open to all employees and winners are selected at random by an automated selection tool.

Employees who have been with the group for five years or more receive two entries per month into the draw, while those with 10 years service or more gain a total of four entries.

Cheryl Clifford, board director at BGL Group, said: “BGL Group can be a demanding, dynamic and fast-paced place to work, and it is important that our staff feel that this is balanced with a sense of how much they are valued by the organisation.

“We wanted to introduce something new that would reach as many people as possible, thank them for their hard work and introduce a sense of fun, surprise and spontaneity.

“The initiative has generated great excitement and appeals to employees at every level and office location across the group.”
