Celebration Event

Why have I been invited to the event?

As one of our colleagues, we value the contribution you make to our business day in and day out. We would like to say a special thanks to the following people:

- Colleagues who are celebrating 15 and 20 years with the Dee Set Group
- Our whizzy up and coming apprentices
- Managers of colleagues who are celebrating 15 and 20 years with us
- Not forgetting our Senior Executives, of course.

I'm travelling quite a way, can I book accommodation for the event?

Yes. If you are travelling over 50 miles to attend the event at our Stoke-on-Trent offices your accommodation will be covered.

We will reserve a number of rooms at a local hotel on your behalf, if you would like to reserve one of these rooms email 20years@deeset.co.uk and let us know whether it is a single, double or twin room that you would like. Please note, availability is on a first come, first serve basis so be sure to confirm your attendance and accommodation request asap.

If you are travelling over 50 miles and would like to arrange your own accommodation, we will cover the accommodation cost up to the value of £76.00

Can I bring a plus one?

If you are celebrating your 15- or 20-year service this year or you have completed an apprenticeship in the last year, your Manager will have also received an invite to celebrate with you. You are also welcome to bring a guest along with you if you would like. This does not need to be a Dee Set group colleague, it could be a family member or friend that you would like to celebrate with.

Is the accommodation option available for my plus one too?

We can only cover the cost of one room booking, additional rooms should they be needed for your plus one will have to be paid for separately.

Can I claim travel costs to our Stoke-on-Trent office?

We will reimburse travel costs at your usual rate for guests who are not normally based at our Dee Set, Stoke-on-Trent office.

I'm not based at the Stoke-on -Trent office and am going to use public transport to get to the event, will I be able to claim this as expenses?

If we choose not to drive, we will reimburse the cost of your travel to a maximum of 25p a mile. For example if you have a 200 mile round trip, we will reimburse you up to £50.00 for the cost of a train ticket. Travel cost will be for the main guest only, we cannot cover plus ones travelling separately.

How will I claim my travel and accommodation expenses?

If you have access to Rydoo, you will claim your travel expenses through this. If not, email 20years@deeset.co.uk and we will liaise with our Payroll team to make alternative arrangements.

What is the dress code for the event?

The event will be relaxed and informal, so feel free to dress casual. We are planning some outdoor activities too, so you may want to take this into consideration when looking through your wardrobe.
