Staff Appreciation Awards for our Best Brand Ambassadors of 2017

Staff appreciation is a key component in keeping any team motivated, engaged and inspired, wouldn’t you agree? 

Tigris has over 2,000 events staff on our roster nationwide across Canada, but we strive to maintain a close bond with as many of them as possible. Although our events staff work on an event to event basis, they have the opportunity to shine and prove their capabilities through just one single event! We take into consideration their performance onsite and communication leading up to, during and post event. This includes their high energy and professionalism onsite and detailed reporting and wrap up post event. At the end of each year, our head office team comes together to select top events staff in our major markets across Canada who truly deserve staff appreciation awards and recognition.

Before you get too deep into our article, if you’re looking to hire the best brand ambassadors in the country – give us a call at 647-286-9392 or fire off an email to [email protected] 

Drum roll please – below are our 2017 winners!
