Andy’s in the game
‘A bit of luck’ has helped IT portfolio director Andy Maddocks pick up the September Manager of the Month prize in the Royal Mail Workplace Fantasy Football League.
A £50 Amazon voucher is on its way to London-based Andy, after he soared into 19th place in the standings with the highest points haul for the month.
With a voucher up for grabs each month for the manager scoring the most points, it means whenever you join you have a chance to be the best and to win. And with the start he’s made, Andy’s also in the running for the end-of-season top prize – a trip to Barcelona to watch a match at Camp Nou and a one-night stopover.
‘I’ve been in the Royal Mail Technology fantasy league for a couple of years, which always leads to friendly discussions with colleagues on the progress (or lack of) of each other’s teams,’ explains Andy. ‘I joined the wider Royal Mail league to give the opportunity to widen this with non-Technology colleagues.
‘It’s always great to introduce friendly competition into the workplace.’
Or on Workplace! Which is where you must be to be eligible to win prizes like Andy. Not yet entered? Well, the competition returns as the Premier League comes back on Saturday following the international break. So, there’s no better time. Submit your squad by 11am on Saturday and you’ll still have a great chance of winning October’s prize. Click here for all of the details to join.
‘Gameweek five was a great week for me,’ says Andy of his September success. ‘Pretty much the whole team performed with Sarr, Toney, Rudiger and Salah really pulling in the points. Let's be honest though – you need a bit of luck along the way!’
If not for the fantasy league, Andy is certain you should at least join Workplace anyway. Click here for details to activate your account.
‘The ability to share updates and have a two-way communication tool directly with all colleagues works well,’ says Andy. ‘The ability to have groups, such as Fantasy League, alongside the day-to-day work updates means it isn't just all work focused.’
