O&L Leisure Today - September 2018
O&L Leisure Fun Day at Midgard
In July, O&L Leisure hosted their first annual Fun Event at Midgard Country Estate with 160 team members from all four properties and the central office attending the event. The purpose of the event was to bring together team members from all O&L Leisure properties to build affinity and have FUN!
The event was a great success. Over the course of two days team members participated in a Big Brag competition and Service Brand Ambassador event. The sport tournaments included soccer, netball and skittle, whilst the festivities concluded with a Bali Boma BBQ and price giving evening.
A highlight of the event was that over N$ 10,000 was collected by team members as part of our social responsibility initiatives. The funds were distributed to various charities supported by O&L Leisure, again showcasing our purpose for creating a future and enhancing lives.
