blueAPACHE recently hosted our end of year celebrations in Melbourne. With more than 100 staff attending from across the country, this was our biggest event yet.
2017 has been a tremendous year for blueAPACHE. For the past 19 years, we have continued to maintain our growth at 32 percent year on year and our headcount passed the 100 mark earlier in the year. We solidified our presence nationally, expanding into bigger office spaces in Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales (all within a matter of weeks!), while also increasing our reach globally. We brought on-board a record number of new customers while continuing to delight and take pride in working with our long term client base.
While change has been a constant this year, some things have remained the same – the unique camaraderie and can-do attitude demonstrated by every blueAPACHEan. We acknowledged the best of them with our annual staff awards. There were various categories recognizing excellence in customer service, engineering, innovation, projects and the ‘This is IT’ award presented to the one who best exemplifies our core values.
From awards to entertainment – bowling and laser tag competitions proved to be crowd pleasers. As the evening progressed, it was time to relax, enjoy the food and music and, as is evident from the photos below, everyone did just that.
This celebration is not complete without acknowledging all our clients and our partners, whose support has contributed to what has proven to be another amazing year. So from all at blueAPACHE, a sincere thank you.
We wish each and every one of you a happy festive season and a prosperous new year.
