The core of The Cubies, is the awards ceremony. The aim is to recognise the team for their exceptional efforts and achievements every year. From ‘Most Inspirational Human’ to ‘Hero of the Hour’ and ‘Ray of Sunshine’. It is such a lovely way to take the time to acknowledge the wonderful people, teams and projects for the year. So, the festivities kicked off with getting straight to the ceremony. Of course, we had to mix-up a few of the categories to reflect working in 2020!
Here are the Cubes that got this particular recognition this year….
- Excellence in Lockdown Entertainment – Who brightens your day, motivates you, and was a ray of sunshine during the wild ride of lockdown?
This award went to none other than our ray of California sunshine and lockdown cheerleader, Marketing Executive, Krystal
- Nube of the Year – Which ‘Nube’ has ingrained themselves into the clan and thrown themselves into all things CUBE since January 2020?
While this past year we have had some ahh-mazing new starters, this one swept the vote for this category by his fellow teammates, and that was Backend Developer Sam
- Hero of the Hour – Who is the person who always steps in to save the day or has delivered a heroic moment this year?
Enrique Iglesias had this person in mind when he wrote his banger, because they have swooped in to rescue a fellow Cube or hairy project situation. Our mobile Team Lead, Simon has been the man for the job!
- Best Google Meet Moment – There’s been a few…but what made you cry with laughter or made you feel a huge sense of pride?
The constant Meet moments are hard to top after having an innumerable amount since March, but the one and only Head of Production, Sophie came through to deliver a moment so memorable it has gotten a lot of mileage amongst us Cube’s in 2020.
