A group of Frank Salt Real Estate employees have just returned from Barcelona – the land of fiestas and Flamenco dancing. This is the company’s sixth group of high-flyers who have been treated to an all-inclusive incentive trip in recognition of their service to our customers, hard work, commitment and results achieved during 2018.
Barcelona is a beautiful, picturesque city, buzzing with tourists, restaurants, architecture and culture. The team spent a great five days in a stunning boutique hotel, located only a 10-minute walk away from bustling La Rambla.
With a group of people as diverse and motivated as Frank Salt high achievers, the trip would not have been complete without a strong element of adventure. Amongst other activities they experience the thrill of a hot air balloon ride in the Spanish countryside, and various culinary experiences including visits to the oldest restaurant in Barcelona dating back to 1786, a 2-star Michelin restaurant, and a ‘dining in the dark’ experience. Another escapade included a visit to the vineyards of Cava where the team sampled some of the most famous sparkling wines of Catalonia. The group were also invited to bottle, label and cork a bottle of Cava each to take home with them.
The lucky team includes sales consultants Paul Bondin, Josienne DeGaetano, Pawlu Portelli and Roger Zammit, letting consultants Mirco Mai and Katya Scicluna, branch managers Ray Young and George Bonnici, branch secretary Alexia Sciberras and accounts assistant Arianna Cutajar Ghigo. Company director Grahame Salt accompanied the group and led the numerous activities.
The trip’s itinerary included an element of work consisting of a number of brainstorming sessions and meetings, which this year focused primarily on internal and external client service, client needs, recruitment and new ideas for social media marketing. All meetings were held in iconic venues to bring out the best in creative thinking.
“The best session must have been the one we had at a beautiful park, packed with young people basking and lazing in the sun or simply walking their dogs” said George Bonnici. “We were all lying down on the grass in a circle, relaxed while soaking in the atmosphere and bursting with ideas”.
Asked about her experience, Katya Scicluna said “It was truly a rewarding experience where we felt valued as individuals and above all as a team
Dedicated to our customers. It was an opportunity to bond together and listen to everyone’s ideas, as we all come from different roles within the company.”
“The time we spent together gave us a deeper insight about our daily roles, and how we could improve to be the dynamic team that we all aim to become. It was energising to see that, ultimately, we all share the same vision. That means working towards the same goals as a team” Katya added.
The annual incentive trip is one of many initiatives through which Frank Salt Real Estate recognises the efforts of its teams. Ongoing professional and personal development, training, company events, performance-based rewards, a sound marketing and IT infrastructure and a welcoming office environment also help to ensure that the company retains its edge as a leading estate agency and a great place to work for property consultants.
