Applause IT

Remember when we were having a sweltering summer heatwave? Looking out at the Birmingham skyline today, you’d be forgiven for thinking that summer was a distant memory.

Birmingham Victoria Square today

Last Wednesday we were withstanding 33ºC rays on the hottest day in the UK for over 40 years!

Dressed in our finery, we took a minibus for a 2-hour spin down the M40 to a sunny, sunny, unbelievably sunny, Ascot 2017.

The grounds were glorious and the drinks flowing as we watched the four-legged stars of the show rocket pass just a few metres away.

Do we wish the sprinklers had accidentally turned on? Of course, it was boiling. Do we wish we had ordered a mini-bus with air-conditioning? Of course, it was boiling.  But one thing we definitely wouldn’t change is spending time with our fantastic team.

Our clients know, just as we do, that a great team takes your business to another level. We’ve added new faces to our team thanks to Yasmin, our talent acquisition & training manager, and we’re excited to grow our team further and progress our team into senior roles.

Last Wednesday was a chance for us to treat the team to a well-deserved day out of the office, to enjoy our successes and spend valuable time with our team.

If you’re struggling to retain staff or want to build a more cohesive workplace atmosphere- we highly recommend a day at the races. Maybe not on the hottest day of the year, but still, a great day out.
