YESTERDAY WAS THE DAY WHEN WE TRIED TO GET THE WHOLE DAIMLER TRUCKS SUNSHINE COAST FAMILY TOGETHER FOR THE ANNUAL STAFF PHOTO. THE PHOTO NOT ONLY GETS SPLASHED ACROSS THE INTERNET AND SOCIALS BUT STARS ON THE FRONT COVER OF OUR ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CALENDAR. AND HERE'S THE RESULT; FEATURING NEARLY ALL STAFF, OUR SHINY NEW CASCADIA DEMO, OUR NEW ACTROS MIRRORLESS TRUCK, FUSO TILT TRAY AND BEN'S, I LOVE FUSO, UTE. SMILE TEAM.
The generous boss here at Trucks, Chris Spence, tries to gather the whole team together, every month, for lunch and a pow wow. It's a great time for sharing, passing on business news, celebrating goals, awarding mechanics of the month incentives, welcoming new comers and enjoying a feed together, socially distanced of course.
Yesterday was the day for the photo and lunch. The workshop boys were in attendance, wearing their very smart, brand new, black work shirts. Mechanics of the month were awarded with Nathan Bond taking out the Apprentice category and Michael Osborne the Mechanic category.
We nearly got everyone together. Unfortunately Parts Assistant Manager Daniel Coccetti was on annual leave so couldn't make it and both of the new girls in the Parts Store, Christine Triplett and Tiana Broadway, were out on deliveries. I'll have to try and photoshop them in haha.
