Looking back at 2022: highlights of our Group
As we approach a new year, we thought it would be appropriate to take a few moments to review the highlights of the past year. A return to the past in order to better understand the future, in a way!
♣ One date: 28/01/2022. An important date, since it corresponds to the great (and much awaited) reopening of our gaming halls whose activities had to be temporarily stopped due to the health crisis. This turned to be a good time to reflect, as we have rethought the organization of our teams through new job titles that perfectly match their responsibilities. It was also an opportunity to think about our customers by resuming MAS tournaments throughout Belgium, with more than €5,000 in winnings for each tournament!
♣ One number: 83. Whether in the gaming halls or at headquarters, no less than 83 new employees have joined the Golden Palace family in Belgium during 2022... Not counting the Press Shop & More teams that we have been fortunate enough to count among our ranks for several months already! And yes, things are moving at Golden Palace! Internal mobility is also a must with 7 employees who have changed jobs.
♣An anniversary: the 10th anniversary of Goldenpalace.be. Our online gaming and betting site Goldenpalace.be celebrated its 10th anniversary in March 2022. For the occasion (and more), the site had the right to its batch of updates. This is a testimony to our constant drive to improve the customer experience. However, the most anticipated anniversary is yet to come as the Golden Palace Casino Sports Group will blow out its 60 candles in 2023!
♣One (big) pride: CSR is everywhere with us. What a joy to have been able to support several projects and associations during this year! Oxfam Trail, organization of blood drives, Sports Month, participation in the Shoe-Box operation,... So many achievements that we are eager to renew and/or extend in 2023.
♣ One project: Oria. The website was born in June after months of development. Entirely dedicated to the B+ license, Oria is a little gem and breaks the codes of "classic" online game sites.
♣ One new partnership: Or rather two ! We have been lucky enough to sign a sponsorship contract with two talented and promising soccer clubs: RWDM Molenbeek and RAAL La Louvière. In addition to these two, we have extended our partnership with KV Mechelen for 3 years. On the basketball side, we were also pleased to extend our commitment to Telenet Giants Antwerp.
♣ One move: From one headquarters to another. A part of the Golden Palace team has moved to the new Press Shop & More headquarters. They are not so far away, however, as the two offices are only 10 km apart.
♣One major change: A second casino in France. Already established in France with its casino in Boulogne-sur-Mer, Golden Palace feels at home here and has proven this by integrating the Noirétable casino into the group.
Recruitment, success, commitments. 2022 will have been a rich year from all points of view! The best is yet to come... We wish you a wonderful holiday season and an excellent year 2023!
