Staff, volunteers and Board members from across the county got together for our annual staff seminar held over two days (14th and 15th March) at BG Futures: Careers, Employability and Enterprise.
It proved to be a huge success thanks to the support of Steve Smedley from Acuity, Zoe Lamb and Sam Clarke from Shooting Star, Stephen Lumley from Thornton Firkin, Darren Heffer from Saunders Boston Architects, Tim Dyke from WPA, Mark Turton from LinCA Workforce Developme...nt, Maureen O'Callaghan from Mindfulness for Business, and LACE employees Anne Graves and Elaine Donaldson.
We reflected on the current environment in which we operate, how we are responding to challenges such as Brexit, how we ensure that we comply with regulatory standards and what we can do to support the health and wellbeing of our staff.
As if that wasn't enough, we explored the safe use of social media, what the design of our housing with extra care will look like in the future and considered the impact of welfare reform on the association and our residents.
A big thank you to everyone who attended and supported the event.
