Well done to John du Toit Motors for their wonderful achievements at the Nissan awards for 2014!

Congratulations to Annelie Viljoen and her team at John du Toit Motors in Lichtenburg, North West who won the Nissan Dealer of the Year 2014 for Large Dealers as well as the Global Award in Recognition for Outstanding Performance in 2014.

According to Nissan SA, the judging criteria for this prestigious annual recognition are dealers’ customer satisfaction index (CSI) performance, retail sales versus target, parts and accessories sales versus target and profitability: “In addition, nominees are judged on their adherence to Nissan franchise standards and Nissan’s standards of doing business”.  We are very proud to be associated with John du Toit Motors and wish Annelie and the team all the best for the year to come!

#TeampinewoodSA takes part in the Impi Challenge!

A few Pinewood employees decided to tackle the infamous Impi Challenge in Cape Town earlier this month. After doing some hard and gruelling training, as the sun was still rising, they arrived in Stellenbosch to begin a challenge that they knew could only make them stronger (if it didn’t kill them first!)

They started the day off by painting warrior stripes on their face and tying bright coloured fabric to their arms and heads – to stand out above the rest just as Pinewood employees always do! The first challenge saw them crawling through mud and under barbed wire, followed by jumping over high walls, transferring tyres from one pole to the next, crawling underground through a tiny hole, crawling through more mud, jumping over higher walls, sliding into water and finishing off by racing each other across lily pads to the finish line.

It’s always been and always will be about challenging yourself, challenging your friends and helping each other out #teampinewoodsa

#TeampinewoodSA on a team building adventure!

On Friday the 15th  May, the Pinewood SA staff went on a Team Building adventure and did the Amazing Race at the V&A Waterfront. They started off by getting dressed up in all weird and wonderful outfits in the office and headed out in convoy to the start of The Race. They got divided into teams and started off by warming their muscles as well as their vocal cords (because war cries are a must when it comes to competitive people!).
Each team had to navigate their way around the V&A Waterfront, paddle a paddle boat blind folded, answer questions, play games of battle ships, create necklaces from materials they collected along the way, visit the Springbok Experience Rugby Museum, play a round of putt-putt and take crazy photos! Every staff member had a wonderful time and certainly do feel more refreshed and operating as a close-knit team after such a fantastic team build.
