Impact’s Employee of the Year 2022

We are delighted to announce that Carly David is our Impact Employee of the Year for 2022.

This is an astounding feat, seeing as she only started with us in Jan 2022 and had been a secretarial specialist before moving over to HR with Impact. Carly made her mark from day 1 at Impact and had an awesome year. She not only has a hugely successful desk, but became a really important part of the Impact team and culture.

Congrats to Carly, your award Is well deserved!

How does it feel to be our Employee of the Year 2022?

It feels amazing to be recognised for a successful year and it makes me even more motivated for 2023. It’s been a whirlwind 12 months but I’ve loved every second and I’m so happy I made the move into HR recruitment.

You only started in Jan 2022 – What is the secret of your success?

I don’t think there is a secret, its hard-work and determination which I think all Impact employees embody. I cram a lot into a day so I work efficiently which I think comes down to years of experience. And being able to juggle 10 things at once!

What were your 2022 highlights?

Hitting my yearly target by October was a great feeling! Getting to grips with HR and all that it brings has been a great learning curve. And of course working with amazing colleagues who make all the difference when you’ve had a challenging day! There’s a lot of laughter in this office which is exactly the way it should be!

What’s are your 3 top tips to those who want to be as successful as you?

Ways to Engage Your Employees this Christmas

As a business, you want your staff to be motivated and engaged and to finish the year on a high, rested and ready for the next. We look at some simple ways to engage your team during the holidays.


Plan ahead

Try to plan everything ahead of schedule to ensure you’re able to clearly communicate your year-end goals to employees well in advance. Move non-essential meetings into the New Year, to help people focus on their core work in December and avoid burnout and encourage a big end-of-year push by offering some serious incentives in December.

Creating a clear schedule of when your team are taking their holiday time off can be better for communicating and planning things like the work Christmas party around dates that work for all your team. It’s also important to schedule all festive communications well in advance, so there’s no checking in on LinkedIn during Christmas lunch!


Reward your employees

Offer a flexible working schedule, with extended lunches, earlier finishes, or increased working-from-home flexibility. Whether it’s last-minute work projects, Christmas shopping or train strikes, it’s good to give your employees a reward for their dedication in the run-up to Christmas and avoid any unwanted stress.

Set your employees up for success to tackle whatever comes their way with well-being resources to improve their mental, physical and financial wellness.


Celebrate successes

The end of the year is a natural time to recognise everyone’s efforts and a great opportunity for employees at all levels to show their appreciation for each other. It shouldn’t just be about work-related milestones either! Celebrate employees who’ve really embodied your culture and values or have reached personal goals.


Embrace the festivities!

The holiday season is all about giving, if you’re a multi-cultural team where not everyone celebrates Christmas, there are still plenty of reasons to get in a festive mood! Start by bringing Christmas to the office and get the team to join in for Christmas Jumper Day on Thursday 8th December or decorate your office space.


Most important of all is to say thank you to your team and make sure they feel valued because sometimes a little can go a long way and if you’re looking for further benefits for your employees, check out out top non-salary benefits guide.
