2015 Overview and Weekend Retreat

2015 Recap and Coniston Blog Header

2015 was a great year for Nilorn UK.  Not only did we outperform previous years, making it our strongest yet, we continued to grow and progress as a company.

Investing in people is a must at Nilorn and 2015 saw us taking on new staff and apprentices – expanding our internal training programmes and the Nilorn family.  Continued development means we are constantly adding new products to our ever increasing range.  These are showcased at client events such as the one we hosted at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, London back in September.

“We have an amazing team here at Nilorn providing exceptional levels of customer service. With an unbelievable blend of age and experience, youth and enthusiasm, our future looks very bright. Our commitment to apprenticeships means that currently 30% of our team are either currently in training, or are qualified now with permanent contracts with us and our plan is to add another two apprentices later this year. As our business continues to grow we are creating our own talent pool, and being able to promote from within – we are growing our own stars of the future. 2016 does look very bright indeed!” – David Hinchliffe, Managing Director

To mark the end of another fantastic year for Nilorn UK, our annual recognition event took place at Coniston Hotel, North Yorkshire last weekend for all staff and partners.

Managing Director, David, gave us a round up of 2015 before the activities got under way.  There were plenty of surprises, including an interactive visit from local brewery, Theakston’s, involving beer tasting and a barrel making demonstration from their Cooper, before games and a pub quiz.

The celebrations continued into the evening with awards presented in-between dinner courses, including our coveted Nilornian of the Year award – won this year by Aoife Hargreaves – voted for by her colleagues for her contribution to Nilorn throughout 2015. 

Entertainment for the evening was a live band – The Funtime Frankies – which allowed us all to bust out our greatest dance moves!

All in all a great weekend celebrating in true Nilorn UK style – and here’s to a successful 2016.
