Sage People Partnership Building

We were delighted to welcome Wendy Newbold, Sage People’s Partner Relationship Manager to our Milton Keynes offices last week to meet the Tugela team, share experiences and discuss the exciting future of our partnership with Sage People.

We were also thrilled she was here to watch the unveiling of our spectacular new piece of wall art – a triptych of Tugela Falls – the world’s second highest waterfall spanning 947 meters, which can be found in the Drakensberg mountain range in South Africa.

Thomas Schilling, Managing Director, said: ‘As the longest standing Sage People Preferred Partner, we continually work to develop a productive relationship with Sage People through knowledge sharing events like these so that we can continue to WOW our clients.’

2018 Colleague of the Year Award…

A huge congratulations to Jamie Wilkins who has been selected as the ‘2018 Colleague of the Year’ by the Tugela People team.  Jamie joined us in January 2018 and quickly made a positive impact with his keen understanding of people management and HRIS systems, and hunger for learning.  Some of his achievements include:

  • Since joining, Jamie has been promoted from a HRIS Consultant role to HRIS Technical Support Consultant
  • Establishing and leading Tugela People’s Managed Services Offering
  • Organising our successful MacMillan Coffee Morning

Charles McGregor, Professional Services Manager, said ‘Well done to Jamie, a well deserved recognition from his peer group for his efforts here at Tugela People to date.

By WOWing our colleagues Jamie lives and breathes the Tugela People values. His tenacity for developing solutions to meet not only our clients requirements but to support our colleagues as well is how we should all aim to approach the implementation of HRIS solutions.’

Well done Jamie!

Successful Macmillan Coffee Morning

We were delighted to host a Macmillan Coffee Morning here last week to support this worthy charity that is close to our hearts. The fundraiser was expertly organised by Jamie Wilkins, with the whole team getting behind the event, and welcoming not only organisations in our building, but also those in the rest of the Caswell site.

We hosted the coffee morning in our offices at mid-morning, providing hot drinks and a selection of sweet and savoury treats. Colleagues kindly contributed a wonderful array of homemade goodies including cheese and pesto cheese straws, millionaire’s shortbread, carrot and banana cake. We encouraged people to sit down, have a drink and socialise – it was particularly lovely to see many neighbours meeting for the first time.

The feedback has been very positive. We raised around £130 from donations from both the food and drink and the “guess the length of the veggie roll” game. The money will be donated directly to Macmillan.
