Last Thursday, the 6th of October, PRG organised a Freelance Event. Exceptionally, the roles were reversed: the freelancers were the guests of the evening and the event was arranged for them. PRG wanted to use this opportunity to thank our freelancers for the hard work during the busy summer season, filled with festivals, concert tours, car shows and fashion shows.
Before the doors opened for our freelancers, PRG held the first Quarterly Staff Meeting. CEO Duncan Verstraeten and COO Thomas Van Lokeren presented their strategy for the upcoming year. The offices of PRG France, Netherlands and Spain followed the meeting thanks to live streaming. After the Staff Meeting, we welcomed the freelancers for the Freelance Event at around 5pm.
About 300 freelancers were invited to meet the PRG employees. Every hour, Erik Knook, our new Warehouse Manager, guided a tour through the warehouse. When freelancers come to PRG to prep a job, it’s important for them to know who to contact and be informed about the way the warehouse operates, in order for them to work efficiently.
As a memory aid, freelancers were given a warehouse booklet to take home, in which they can find all contact information of the Heads of Departments, Asset Managers and the Operation Managers.
It goes without saying that drinks and food were part of this Freelance Event! PRG hired a Foodtruck to serve some delicious hamburgers and sandwiches.
We would like to thank everyone who came to the Freelance Event. This definitely was a successful evening and it will not be the last one!
