A Year of Challenges!
As well as the normal challenges business life throws at us, this year a number of our staff will be undertaking a few personal challenges of their own and for the sake of their chosen charities.
Claire Hodgson, our Horizon Marketing Manager is travelling to China to trek the Great Wall of China in September to raise money for Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust http://www.jostrust.org.uk/
Barry Mair from our Qube Professional Services team is going to complete the International Canoe Race from Devizes in Wiltshire to Westminster Bridge in London. A total of 125 miles. Barry is paddling with a partner in the 4-day endeavour race taking part in the open boat, veteran mixed category and is doing this both from the perspective of a personal challenge and also to help raise money for the Help for Heroes charity. http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/
We have staff running in the London Marathon and we might also hear soon if our team will again attempt the Vertical Rush race again this year.
This is just a good luck message and to say that these people are inspirational. So look out for more news of these challenges on our news channel and on this blog.
Workplace and facility managers are under increasing pressure to provide a workplace that attracts top performers and improves staff motivation, effectiveness and retention. Balancing this with the need to continually add value to your corporation and reduce costs is the ultimate goal.
Online shopping is an ever-growing threat to physical real estates in the high street. As a consequence, retail investors face the new challenge of encouraging customers to get out of the house and visit their venues rather than spending their money online.
