AztecFest 2022 – The Art of Alternative

Training, connecting, and celebrating our collective
success as we turn 21.

AztecFest 2022 – The Art of Alternative

After a three-year hiatus, our flagship employee engagement event, AztecFest came back with a bang! This year, 1200 employees travelled to Spain to learn, connect, and celebrate in one place. We took the opportunity to reflect on our success and look ahead to our bright future.

When asked what AztecFest is about, Edward Moore, our Founder and CEO, explained:

“Every employee has played a key role in Aztec’s success and for me, AztecFest is first and foremost about recognising and celebrating that and thanking our people for their efforts. After the last few years, it’s was so important to bring our people together to collaborate, reconnect and make memories that will last a lifetime.”

Training

In the four weeks leading up to AztecFest, we put our people into 120 multi-jurisdictional teams which collectively completed more than 7,500 continued personal development courses, all designed by our in-house learning and development team, the Aztec Academy.

This training included insightful sessions from our leaders on strategy, their roles and experiences, videos from our people about our culture, values and future plus a dedicated career coaching programme, to support all employees with their personal career goals.

During AztecFest, we ran interactive workshops with 10 keynote speakers who presented on key topics impacting our industry, as well as setting out the fundamental part each employee plays in our journey and future ambitious for growth.

Reconnection

On the Friday, we invited all employees from across our seven offices to connect face-to-face and explore ‘the Art of Alternative’. In the spirit of unity, those who were unable to make it to Spain attended virtually to experience the sessions and join in the fun!

Our teams then took on the ultimate team-building challenge in PortAventura theme park, where they were set various challenges. From a scavenger hunt to riding the rollercoasters, our teams strengthened relationships with colleagues both old and new.

Celebration

It wouldn’t be an Aztec event without the brightest and boldest 21st birthday party!

The line-up included entertainment from our very own talented employees with acoustic sessions, DJ sets, in addition to some world-class performances from an incredible saxophonist, beatboxer and band.

As if that wasn’t enough, there was also a silent disco, rollercoasters and an epic firework display timed to chart hits over the last 21 years… we know how to create memorable moments.

So you’ve read about what happened at AztecFest…Here’s what our people had to say about it…

“I was truly taken aback by the friendship and love everyone has for each other. New friends and old, everyone was so happy and loving the Aztec vibe! I have never experienced a work event like it – Amazing!”

“Absolutely loved every minute of Aztecfest. The sessions were all thought-provoking, focusing on key areas of the business and each one made you feel part of the journey. There’s no other business that cares for its people so much.”

“The least corporate party I could have imagined! Such a friendly and fun atmosphere. The values of Aztec were truly demonstrated and I’m lucky to be a part of it”
