Six months of RedBalloon fun!

This is a snapshot of Kylie Croot’s time with the RedBalloon for Corporate team…  

Over the past six months, I have:

Dressed up as an elf with my wonderful colleague Emma. We handed out Xmas flyers in Martin Place, which has been one of the highlights of my job so far (not because I love dressing up as Santa’s little helper!) Here at RedBalloon we are always challenged to test and measure new ideas, to try something different and to embrace our values – here we are embracing having a sense of humour and fun.

Shown our clients what a RedBalloon experience is all about – for Christmas it was a graffiti event. Our events extraordinaire Kristen and marketing marvel Angela organised the day. The group was split into two teams and as you can see, we created some seriously cool art!

Created and launched a fun consumer campaign for Schweppes. We gave Schweppes’ customers a chance to win their ultimate experience, which included a Red Royalty Concierge service.

Launched an exciting new reward and recognition program at Moorebank Sports Club for a team of people who (like all of us) deserve to be recognised. We made a thank you wall, had a buffet breakfast and talked about what recognition means to all of us as individuals.

Eaten at a Korean BBQ and watched a movie at a Gold Class Cinema with my team to celebrate our hard work over the trimester.  Going to a Korean BBQ was a new experience for me – luckily our resident program manager Mike Dickinson is a pro!

Had a LOT of fun at Madame Tussauds on a Corporate night out. One team member is given the responsibility of organising a fun event for everyone each trimester, which usually includes a RedBalloon experience. My colleague James organised a surprise visit to Madame Tussauds – this is one of my favourite photos!

Donned a fake mo to serve up a Cookie Monster Munch BBQ breakfast to 60 hungry RedBallooners! I’m in the Cookie tribe – an Employee Experience initiative designed to get us out of our teams so that we can collaborate with people in different areas of the business.

Booked to jump out of a helicopter!?!?! Part of my role is to support the implementation of reward and recognition programs.  Through our internal program “Red Hot Rewards” I’ve earned enough points to purchase a skydive – something that’s been on my bucket list for years.

And that’s a wrap… here’s to another six months of fun!

    Wow! I came on here looking for information for a project at uni but I’ve come away knowing what my dream company to work for is! Congrats Red Balloon on creating such a great service and workplace for your staff :)
