Gary’s Workplace praise as he claims monthly prize

Gary Price has taken the July prize in our Workplace-exclusive #pictureperfect competition and has praised the platform for engaging colleagues.

Workplace launched for all at Royal Mail at the end of March. It’s an opportunity to collaborate and communicate with colleagues across the UK – and enter exclusive competitions too!

That’s exactly what Gary, a postman in Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire, has done. He entered the #pictureperfect competition with this shot of a puffin at Skomer Island, off the coast of Pembrokeshire.

After featuring in the top six most ‘likes’ he was shortlisted in the finalists' poll and took the top spot with 95 votes. A clear win as second place only polled 41.

‘The picture was taken at Skomer Island that has 34,500 puffins this year,’ says Gary. ‘I took the picture as I’m a keen bird life “twitcher” and had always wanted to learn more about puffins living on Skomer.

‘It’s truly amazing that I won and I’m grateful for all those that voted for the picture.

‘I reckon Workplace is a remarkable platform for all staff to engage with one another about all types of subjects and issues.’

An iPad is on its way to Gary as his prize win. The August #pictureperfect competition is already underway – and there’s plenty of time to enter. Simply post a picture of your choice, taken by you, and post it in the Team Royal Mail group with #pictureperfect
