The Verve Yoda is back!

This time he’s here to stay.

Yoda enjoys Music Friday just as much as the rest of us at Verve.

Forget about the BAFTAs, the Grammys or even the Oscars. Here at Verve Search we have…the Verve Yoda!

Our head Jedi (I mean CEO) Lisa is a big Star Wars fan, and last year she brought in a Yoda doll. There was a motive to her actions, as there always is with Jedi knights (or is there? Sorry I haven’t watched Star Wars but from what I’ve heard Jedi knights pretty ace at doing stuff and always have a reason).

Yoda doll is the trophy to our weekly recognition of awesome work. He’s handed out on a Monday to the person who’s done some super awesome work during the last week. The idea started at the start of the year, but sometime in early February Yoda went AWOL so the awards were put on hold. He was found sitting atop a row of office files looking quite sorry for himself and dusty.

Yoda’s back now and he comes with a new rule: The one who receives the award is in charge of choosing the next winner. Head of SEO, Glen, had the honour of choosing the first winner and it was…

Suhail!

Suhail joined Verve Search back a few years ago while he was studying at Kingston University. He’s one of the hardest working guys in the company, but never complains or grumbles. In fact, he says he has #TooMuchHappiness in him and he comes in to work every morning with a smile (and occasionally some donuts and delicious Persian sweets). He certainly lives by one of Yoda’s very famous quotes, “Do, or do not. There is no try.”

Congratulations Suhail on your well deserved Yoda award. “You will know the good from the bad when you are calm.” Yoda.
