Hello, Pineapplers! The hard work and time you, our agents, have dedicated to your success do not go unnoticed. Don’t forget to take your time to complete your Pineapple Juice trails and modules for a chance to win the learning and development team wild card prize for an all-expense paid trip for you and a guest of your choice. One lucky agent will win a trip to the beautiful island of Aruba. To earn ballots and eligibility for potentially winning this incredible prize, we encourage you to get caught up on Pineapple Juice training. Don’t forget; this could be you!
The process of how to win:
1 ballot for every 5,000 Pineapple Juice points earned. Take your time to complete quizzes to the best of your ability. The more answers you get correct, the higher your chances of obtaining more ballots.
All variety of learning available: products (from tools to self-development) (1 ballot for each product). In Pineapple Juice, we segment our understanding by-products, referred to as learning categories. Each category is defined by the trail/ module badges you see. Please note: Multiple trials can fall under the same type of learning. Trails can also earn you more than 1 ballot. You will gain a ballot for each category, NOT each trail completed. For example, Pineapple Essentials has development Sales & Marketing badges, so you can earn 2 ballots with this trail.
1 ballot for every 5 modules completed in Pineapple Juice. #ElevateYourHorizons
