celebrating 100 stores!
what a great year we’ve had with nationwide Building Society, and we’re not finished yet. Just checking in to say that we’ve finished 100 branches so far this year, and we’ve loved helping to bring this rebrand to life.
we are extremely proud to have worked exclusively with their design standards and property services teams to develop the design specification on brand signage elements – including internal atms, window graphics and external fascias.
following the 67 (yes, you read that right) branches installed during our initial 5 week install period – we’re back and better than ever!
at a current install rate of 16 branches per week, we’ll have a further 112 branches to complete before December 18th – with no need for temporary covers this time.
our collaborative approach working alongside isg has made this rebrand a success to date!
thanks nationwide! ❤️
in honour of raising awareness for world mental health day, we asked some of our colleagues what they do to practice mindfulness; the ability to be in the present moment and just be aware.
for us, raising awareness around mental health means telling as many people as we can that it is always okay to ask for help. with 3 qualified mental health first aid responders across the company, we recognise the need for support within the workplace – which should always be a safe space for our employees.
let’s advocate for change and end the stigma by normalising talking about things and overall, just being kind. ❤️
if you or anyone around you is struggling, please never be afraid to ask for or offer help. here is a start if you don’t know where to look:
samaritans – https://www.samaritans.org/
mind – https://www.mind.org.uk/
nhs mental health – https://www.nhs.uk/mental-health/
rethink – https://www.rethink.org/
campaign against living miserably (CALM) – https://www.thecalmzone.net/
this year we raised £275 for movember !
a handful of our boys sported some serious facial hair in support of men’s mental health awareness and suicide prevention, as well as prostate and testicular cancers – and we couldn’t be prouder. a cause that is close to all of our hearts, the movember movement aims to tackle the men’s health crisis by supporting research, the way that health services support men; and 1,250 men’s health projects globally!
one man dies by suicide every minute, and 3 out of 4 suicides are men. movember aims to prevent this by focusing on early intervention and health promotion, and we are extremely happy that we have been able to contribute to this in any way.
the website advises contacting the nhs on 111 or the samaritans on 116 123 to speak with someone immediately – but to call 999 or go straight to emergency services if you feel anyone’s life is in immediate danger.
