04/09/2015 Strachans Golf Day
Annual Golf Event at Cruden Bay Golf
On Friday 28th August 2015 the Strachans
Annual Golf Event took place at Cruden Bay
Golf Club. As with previous years, the
Stableford competition was well attended by
clients and staff as 27 players ventured out
on a blustery but generally sunny
Aberdeenshire afternoon. There were plenty
of familiar faces with clients who regularly
attend the event as well as newcomers who
also enjoyed the challenge of the
magnificent course which was designed by Old
Tom Morris (who also designed St Andrews)
and first opened in 1899.
Sψren came across from Aalborg to join in
the day's event (magnanimously allowing the
client's to win). He was also on hand to say
a few words of thanks to everyone for
attending and to present the prizes. The
winning team was captained by Grant Baxter
of Strachans along with Mark Bannerman of
Entier and Ian Edwards of ESS.
Newly arrived in the UK, Grant is still a
little hazy on how a handicap is calculated
however James has promised to keep him right
for next year!
The individual Stableford competition was
a 3-way tie with all 3 players scoring 34
points. In the end it came down to the best
back 9 hole score which went to Eddie Davie
of Sodexo. Bruce Milton of Masson and
Glennie came a close second and Gavin
Johnston of GAC took the third prize.
19/08/2015 Paul Northeast Graduated
Our very own Key Account Manager from
Peterhead, Paul Northeast, has recently
completed a 'Masters in Leadership and
Management' course which he has been working
towards over the last 2 years.
Although working full time at Strachans
he committed himself to undertake the course
through distance learning at Portsmouth
Business School which involved many late
nights studying in the library at Aberdeen
University to achieve his goal.
Part of his course was to complete a
dissertation which he chose to be "Managing
for Success: Can a good company get better
through improved Employee Engagement"
Paul confessed that it was a challenge
juggling a young family, work and studying
but the end result has been rewarding and
will lead him on to further studies on how
to manage people for the best results.
His family and the team at Strachans have
supported him through his journey which he
has now successfully completed, very well
17/08/2015 Strachans Long Service
Our longest serving employees!
We recently arranged our first of many
Long Service Awards for employees who have
been with the Company for 25 years or more.
25 years is a long time and is a lot of a
persons time to dedicate to one employer, it
is only right that this dedication and
devotion is recognised.
Each employee with qualifying service was
invited to a private dinner and presented
with engraved watches to mark their service.
