New PONL Facebook group
Post date: Jul 20, 2012 8:36:57 AM
Over the last couple of months more than 2,000 former members of staff who have joined the Facebook PONL group have found it to be a great way of getting back in touch and sharing memories with old colleagues.
For those who aren't a member of the group already, former workmates have been sharing photographs including images of company memorabilia, staff events and offices. Examples of the pictures shared include the delegates for a Focus training course in Singapore, a COPS party in Dubai, a collection of P&O Nedlloyd ties, and publicity from the early days of companies like KNSM, OCL and TFL. There's even pictures of Captain Quality :-)
These images have started up conversations, bringing people back into contact who maybe have not spoken for years:
"Hi everyone, nice to meet you again here"
"And by the way, everybody in the house knows how much I value the PONL things....umbrellas are always not to be touched by enybody but myself....lol....I miss those days and you wonderful people."
"One of the best companies I've every worked for in my career..!!"
"The VERY Best looking container in the shipping business EVER! (navy blue, with the simple, classic and sharp logo - that too the best logo in the shipping business STILL!"
"PONL was a great company to work for with the best employees. Really miss those days. When Maersk bought PONL the Chicago office had a funeral for Captain Quality. What a fitting way to say good bye to P&O."
And many, many more :-)
This is a closed Facebook group, but there's a very good chance that you'll know someone who is a member already who can send you an invitation to join!
