The nation is now counting down to #OYF2017 #BIGWIGGLE on Friday 28th April.

Join up and "Get up offa that thing":

The On Your Feet Britain Challenge dares you to take James Brown at his word and convert 'sitting time' to 'standing time'.

Follow some simple changes - it’s easier than you think: 

  • Stand during phone calls
  • Stand and take a break from your computer every 30 minutes
  • Use the stairs
  • Have standing or walking meetings
  • Eat your lunch away from your desk
  • Walk to your colleague's desk instead of phoning or emailing them
  • Stand at the back of the room during presentations
Ginsters

A reduction in cost of advertising and agency fees attest to the fact fewer people leave the company and that candidates now approach Ginsters direct as they are seen as an employer of choice.  Number of applicants in 2005 = 2481, in 2006 = 3641 and in 2008 = 3764.  Advertising costs reduced from £50,743 in 2005 to £33,805 in 2007 and £18,126 in 2008. 

Beach Games Feedback

"The beach games were amazing - the weather was horrendous, but the day was brilliant - it was a great way of getting to know colleagues from other departments, and what better way than over a game of footie!" - Jacquie Pilcher, Extra Care Coordinator, Coastline Housing Ltd
