Team Building Of A Special Kind: Blue Tomato Hosts Big Recognition Event

The international board sports and lifestyle specialist Blue Tomato recently hosted a very special team building event. The Austrian company, which is based in Schladming and has additional headquarters in Graz and Vienna, once again organized a “Recognition Event” to celebrate and reward the special achievements of its employees. In addition to a cool “Snowday” on the Planai and many other activities, the program for the 360 participants included a large award ceremony followed by a party, at which numerous awards were presented in various categories.

With over 850 employees and more than 450,000 products, Blue Tomato is one of the world's largest online retailers in the snowboard, freeski, surf, skateboard and street style sectors. Blue Tomato was founded in 1988 by former Austrian European snowboard champion Gerfried Schuller. In recent years, the company has also greatly expanded its presence in stationary retail, with Blue Tomato already operating more than 80 stores in Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

CEO Adam Ellis: “It is important to recognize the extraordinary performance”

This year's Recognition Event was the biggest internal event in Blue Tomato's history. “Blue Tomato is a function of our amazing employees. It is important that we take the time to stop and recognize the extraordinary performance of our employees,” emphasized CEO Adam Ellis during the celebrations. “Over the past few years, there has been a great deal of tumult in our markets, but our employees and their efforts have been consistent and demonstrated their love for our customers and Blue Tomato. We are aware of the contributions of our employees and believe it is important to take the time to offer our appreciation and thanks for their excellent work.”

Vanessa Waldenhofer, Director of Marketing & Digital, agrees and adds: “Every year it is a real pleasure to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our employees from both the headquarters and the stores together. At Blue Tomato, 'Recognition' is deeply rooted in our culture.”
