Over the past weekend, the majority of the Reperio Human Capital team enjoyed an all expenses paid trip to the stunning city of Málaga, staying at the 5 star Grand Miramar Hotel. This trip was a reward for all the hard work our consultants put in during the year and we also had a double promotion for our consultants Scott Hool and Sean Devine. There were drinks, fun, heat and sunburn (lots of sunburn). Needless to say, the team are very excited for the next one!
