There are so many things that go into a team’s performance, but essentially the main ingredient is the attitude of the individuals that make up that team. Years ago we hired staff based largely on their CV and work history with mixed results. Then a few years back we made the decision to change our approach and hire totally on personality and how we felt about the person when we met with them. It was one of the best decisions we ever made!
The people that have come on board have gelled so incredibly well together. They work crazy hours often under huge amounts of pressure to keep standards high, deliver beyond expectations on time and above all, ensure that we do everything we can to make a client’s event run smoothly.
So this weekend, after several years of being so incredibly busy that not everyone could attend, that we were finally able to get almost all the team together for a delightful Sunday lunch.
And given that we’re all a bunch of passionate foodies, the bar was set pretty high! Smoked salmon, roast lamb and roast pork (with the best crackling ever, thanks to Dave the crackling King!) accompanied by some amazing smoked potatoes, filled potatoes, chicken wings, lamb burgers and some very fresh, zesty salads.
It was so much fun. We are so fortunate to have a team of people here at Flaming Good that even when we’re not working with them, it’s just fun to hang out together!
Thanks everyone, you guys are absolutely the best!!
