At Wickliffe, we have a Christmas tradition every year, where we join together in each region and have lunch leaving behind the problems of everyday work. Most commonly we have a barbeque, but this year we thought we would do something different.
This year, at the Auckland office, we enjoyed a buffet lunch at the Waipuna Hotel. The whole restaurant came alive as around 100 people joined together to celebrate the end of another challenging yet rewarding year. Seeing some old faces reappear reminded us that once part of the Wickliffe family, you will always be welcome back.
With wine and beer flowing, Christmas crackers popping, and the smell of Christmas ham cooking on a hot summer afternoon, we reminisced over the past year and discussed how we have grown, changed and adapted to the printing market in New Zealand. We were reminded that sometimes you have to remove yourself from the office and enjoy each others company to grow as a firm.
It was definitely an eventful day and we look forward to 2017, hoping it brings joy, prosperity and happiness.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the staff at Wickliffe
