April 3rd, 2011As a tradition of enhancing customer relationship and to leverage on Nestle’s brand name in the market, this year the CCSD and sales team decided to take on a new customer to add to cooperate events; Fathalla. The newly opened Agamy outlet "Agamy Star", which is considered a a high traffic summer destination, has been our choice this summer to have Nestle Corporate Summer Event. From preparation to execution, the process has been smooth and the results have been very successful which have been reflected in the shopper participation level and the sales achievement. Innovation was the name of the game in this event as we added an extra twist to enhance the shopper experience, the Wheel of Fortune!
The Wheel of Fortune added an unprecedented Buzz and created an infectious fun vibe among shoppers. The mechanism was to buy 50LE worth of Nestle products and shoppers would get to spin the wheel to win prizes. Prizes varied from Nestle bags worth approximately 11LE of Nestle products to electric appliances and household products. The brands participating in the event included Nescafe, Nido, Maggi, Cerelac, Nesquik, Nestle Breakfast Cereals, KitKat and Nestle Ice-Cream.
Career Advising Session at the GUC Fair
Out of our responsibility towards our partners and our care in developing the young talents, we went to GUC campus in Qattamiya and provided the students with career advising session covering “How to write a professional CV” and “How to pass an interview”.The session was held by Rania Shaker and Nancy Soliman, and was attended by almost 150 students. Students showed very high interest in the session to the extent that they were sitting on the floor as the classroom was totally occupied – we hardly found a place to stand-
An employment fair took place after the session and the interesting thing was that candidates came to our booth thanking us for the session and telling us how useful was it for them and also sharing their CVs with us and asking for our assessment and modifications.I can say that we not only taught them the CV writing and interview tips but we also gave them a boost for their career focus and ambition. Special thanks to the recruitment team.
GUC Employment Fair
“This is not GUC Fair…This is Nestlé Fair” this was a comment said by one of the fair’s organizers about our presence in the spring GUC employment fair which took place on 21,22 May in the university campus in Qattamiya. The fair was one of the most successful ones and was very well organized, as usual we were platinum sponsors and with our Fantastic New Booth – see photos- and the lots of huge multinational and local companies participated in the fair as Vodafone, BAT, P&G and Unilever.
As usual and probably more than all the past fairs , the highest crowd was at our booth and all the candidates visiting the fair applied their CVs to our company representatives in both the permanent and summer internship jobs.
A huge amount of premium and delicious Ice Cream was distributed and also the yummy KitKat senses, the Nescafe machine and a refreshing Nesquik sampling was done. Our friend Quiky (Nesquik Character) also had a very strong presence as we distributed Nesquik branded giveaways such as plastic mugs, puzzles and stickers.
Donations to Charitable AssociationsAs a good corporate citizen, our company has increased its support in many different areas related to social and community fields in the regions where we operate in line with the Nestlé corporate orientation as “Respected, Trustworthy Food, Nutrition, Health and Wellness Company”.
In addition to Dolcé School, a team from the Human Resources has visited a number of associations, studied their cases and collected data from which 6 associations were chosen to be supported by the Company with its products on a monthly basis.
