2XM Recruit: Melbourne Cup

At 2XM Recruit, we know the importance of creating good culture within your business so that staff feel included and supported. We see having regular social events as a strategy for creating great culture. 

One of our celebrations this year was the Melbourne Cup. This year, we were grateful to be out of lockdown, and to be able to spend some quality time with our work mates. 

Find out how each office spent the day below:

  • Sydney 

The Sydney office teamed up with our sister company, 2XM Technology and went to Squire’s Landing in Circular Quay overlooking the water and Opera House. It was cited as one of the best Melbourne Cup’s to date, with people enjoying a few winners and great food at the venue. 

  • Melbourne

The Melbourne team scored a Public Holiday, where many people from the team took an extra long weekend, spending more time with friends and family. 

  • Brisbane

The Brisbane office watched the race at The Boundary Hotel in South Brisbane, enjoying some great food and drinks – fantastic day had by all. 

  • Perth

Finally, the Perth office went to Optus Stadium enjoying canapés and the awe of being in the centre of an empty 60,000 person stadium. Our colleague Marlayna won the Trifecta via a mystery bet, what are the chances! Congratulations Marlayna, if only we could all be that lucky !

At 2XM, we have taken some other initiatives to make our employees feel better during these unprecedented times. It was great to be able to celebrate in person last Tuesday and enjoy Melbourne Cup how it should be enjoyed. We’re looking forward to a lot more “normal” events as each state and territory opens for business, around Australia. 

At 2XM Recruit, we would love to hear about how or what your workplace is doing to build team culture. Let us know how your team has done on our social media accounts!
