Our festive quiz winners

December 23rd 2020

The South West HR Network’s December meeting felt like the perfect opportunity to inject a little festive, light-hearted competitiveness to the group in the form of a quiz.


(Santa’s) hats off to Ian Grimshaw, Partner at Nash & Co Solicitors’ who came up with up with the questions, that lead many of the members to comment on Ian’s hidden talent! Here’s a sneak peek at one of the questions.


People often ask how Father Christmas delivers presents all in one night, but what they don’t realise is that he is helped by Mrs Claus who delivers half the presents for him. Both Father Christmas and Mrs Claus are employees of Lapland Limited. Mrs Claus has found out that, despite delivering half of the presents, she is paid less than Father Christmas for doing the work. Mrs Claus, in a fit of pique, has resigned. How long, from the ending of her employment, does she have to bring an equal pay claim to an Employment Tribunal?


“Great fun – whoever wrote the quiz – brilliant story telling.”


Up for grabs for the winners were some delicious sweet treats from the Early Bird Cafe and Flapjackery…the perfect way to slide into the indulgence of the Christmas period ahead.


Congratulations to our overall winner, Belinda Newton of The HR Dept. Exeter, with other prizes going to members of the group from Hospiscare, Dartington Hall Trust, The Claims Consortium and East Devon HR.


If you’d like to test your HR knowledge, that comes with a festive twist, you can still have a go, although there are no prizes up for grabs now, we’re afraid!


Here’s hoping we can persuade Ian to get his creative (Easter bunny) hat on once again in March?
