The past year has been challenging for everyone, but we have been so impressed with how our team has coped and continued to deliver high quality services and support to our customers. We are delighted to welcome our employees back to our offices across the UK and in particular our brand new HQ in Chester, where we will be onboarding 40 extra staff members adding to our dynamic and energetic workforce
To show our appreciation, we have given each employee a ‘welcome back’ hamper full of gifts, with the help of our SME community. We are delighted to partner with small businesses such as @GyftyGifts, who provided us with personalised water bottles, and @Bena_Bakes, who gave us delicious, freshly baked macarons, to create this hamper for our colleagues
Divya Ranchod & Atish Naratom – Owners of Bena Bakes:
What a phenomenal collaboration!
“White Oak was our first corporate order of 200 boxes of macarons. We are a small business specialising in macarons and thrive on making every order bespoke and special to all occasions. We worked hand in hand with White Oak to ensure our products were personally hand delivered, this meant a lot to us and our exposure in the sweet world!”
“Great things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people.” – Steve Jobs
Viraj Bharadva – Owner of Gyfty Gifts:
“When you support handmade you are not just supporting a person, small business, family, our economy; you are purchasing a small part of an artist’s heart. – that’s exactly what White Oak did, thank you for the opportunity”
Andy Davies – Managing Director of White Oak Leases and Loans says:
“The pandemic has been a challenge for everyone, and we wanted to give these hampers to our employees to show our appreciation for their hard work and to warmly welcome them back to the office. It was fantastic to give out these hampers in the knowledge that we are giving our employees great products whilst supporting small businesses.”
Working from home hasn’t been easy but our team has been incredibly resilient and together we have come out the other side as an even stronger business. We are really excited to get back to the office to reconnect with our colleagues once again.
Thank you so much to the businesses who have helped us say thank you to our employees!
