First day back at #CapitalOne's offices in Nottingham after a whopping 545 days is a very weird feeling. Got some freebies, a free breakfast, and our first hybrid standup. Been nice to just wave to people, and I'm looking forward to making the most of the day!

Yeah it's not the best πŸ˜₯ I can't remember if I've ever fed back to the team about it, but I'll make sure to drop them a message

Yup, agreed. I guess it depends too on the bottom line and what a cost implication it has, as well as maybe not being as "good" a referral if it's not as close to real word of mouth?

This is also the way my company changed our referral scheme and it makes it a bit more awkward because you have to actively ask for someone's details to refer them, whereas before you got it through folks following the link, which feels less invasive to me

With all the excitement of the #NewHouse, I'd missed this #Christmas hamper from work - what a lovely reminder of #LifeAtCapitalOne and the wonderful ways we're looked after - in addition to the Β£100 M&S voucher I won last week!

A box of Tetley English Breakfast tea, a carton of 200 Degrees Brazillian Love Affair coffee, a card from Capital One, a cone titled reindeer food and a warning that it isn't for human consumption, a cone of sweets, a jar of winter chutney, a jar of festive picallili, and a mulled wine kit with instructions for alcoholic and non-alcoholic variants

I found out that even when doing talks independently, I should've got my work to review them, and was like huh πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

Here's a lovely insight into #LifeAtCapitalOne - my whole tribe (the Grow tribe) have just received a lovely care package from the wonderful Team Building Committee, in lieu of an in-person "fun day". Small things like this make it such a lovely place to work πŸ’œ

A USB fan, a Dairy Milk Bar, a KitKat, a mug with the Grow tribe logo on it, a short note, and some bee-friendly wildflower sees

Currently enjoying an opt-in #mindfulness session with the rest of the company - some good tips to help us cope better with everything going on right now, and nice to have continued investment in myself and my colleagues #LifeAtCapitalOne
