Win like Philip

Join Workplace to enter competitions like #pictureperfect

There’s another winner in town – and all he needed was a smartphone and to have activated his Workplace account, something all of us can do!

Philip Ashworth saw off four other finalists to claim the August #pictureperfect crown. The Workplace-exclusive competition allows all colleagues to take a relevant picture, post it in the Team Royal Mail thread using #pictureperfect and the five entries with the most ‘likes’ at the end of each month are shortlisted for a colleague vote.

Philip, a postman in revenue protection at Preston Mail Centre, entered this stunning shot and was a clear winner. His prize is a brand new iPad.

‘I was waiting for a van in the yard that had some mail I was required to check on a beautiful evening,’ he explains of his inspirational picture. ‘The clouds parted just at the right time for me.

‘The competition is great. There are some beautiful photos on display. I really liked Wayne Read’s photo with the reflection of the postal trolley in the puddle, from this month’s finalists.’

Joining Workplace is simple. In last week’s payslips we sent new passwords for non-connected colleagues. Then, all you need to do is follow these five simple steps.

‘Workplace gives you a chance to share information on working practices,’ says Philip, an advocate of the platform. ‘You can see how other offices are doing things. Working for Revenue Protection, it gives me an opportunity to share information on mail fraud in our office and to see what problems other mail centres are having.’

And enter competitions, too, of course!

‘The win feels awesome,’ he says. ‘It was my birthday last Monday so it was a nice surprise. Also, my Fire tablet gave up the ghost a couple of months ago too – so it’s great timing!’
