Its Random Act of Kindness week – what can you do?

Posted on 14 February 2017

Imagine a world where people look out for each other, where we all pay it forward, where success is measured in selfless acts, where kindness is the philosophy of life… This is the world the Random Act of Kindness Foundation hope to create and believe that kindness is the key to making that happen. It’s a fantastic vision and as far-fetched as it might seem to you, it’s one we can all do our bit t... More >

Volunteering can inspire you

Posted on 09 February 2017

January is often a time for creating resolutions and reflecting on the things we have, or want, in our lives. One of my resolutions was to volunteer more and I recently experienced a day helping at a local homeless centre. It has really opened my eyes to how we treat one another and how the choices we make in life can affect us and those around us. I thoroughly enjoyed my day helping to serve hot ... More >

How times have changed since I joined an apprentice scheme

Posted on 01 February 2017

I was once this teenager who had just left college and had no idea of what to expect. I hunted high and low for any type of job to earn money so I could party with my mates. I guess at 18 that’s what life is really about? After weeks of searching I found a vacancy in a bar where I ended up working for three years. This was brilliant in my eyes, as I was working in an environment which was pretty m... More >

Set personal goals not just new year’s resolutions

Posted on 25 January 2017

At the start of every year we all think about setting resolutions we’re sure we’ll achieve – what can we change? How we can improve our lives? What do we need to do better? Now that January draws to a close, how many of you have actually stuck to the plans that you made? I know, from personal experience, the likelihood is the majority will be waning, or will have given up completely.  This g... More >

FM's role in delivering a great customer experience

Posted on 24 January 2017 by Martyn Freeman

At the end of last year, we brought together a group of senior executives from the transport sector to discuss the unique issues of delivering excellent customer service within such a challenging environment. As usual, with this kind of roundtable event, it proved to be a fascinating debate and unsurprisingly the one point we all agreed on is that FM has a huge role to play. More >

The power of support through mentoring

Posted on 11 January 2017

January is national mentoring month so we wanted to share a fantastic mentoring experience from one of our front of house team. The benefits work both ways so why not get involved? “I am very passionate about anything that relates to the armed forces, especially around mental health. My husband left the army in 2010 suffering with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and struggled to adapt t... More >

Sticking to your goals

Posted on 03 January 2017

Sticking to New Year’s resolutions can be difficult, especially if they’ve been made just for the sake of making them, as after a while the benefits can appear minimal. However, setting goals which are realistic, manageable and personal could be simpler than you think and much easier to stick at. Here, National Account Manager, Oliver Dear offers some practical ways to help keep those goals well w... More >

Tis the season to be jolly…but why can’t we do it all year?

Posted on 14 December 2016

You may well have heard them playing on the radio or in shopping centres for a little too long but there can be no denying that most Christmas songs are upbeat encouragements to have a good time and be good to your fellow man.  And, the festive season really does seem to bring out the best in people.  I love that about Christmas but it always makes me wonder why we can’t all be a bit more ‘festive...
