Positive posts – Innovation, Collaboration, Production and Support

What a couple of weeks it’s been. Between sobering news headlines, endless daily briefings and uninterrupted social media it’s safe to say most of the messages we’ve all been seeing have not been the most uplifting. However, if you look for it, there have been some pretty amazing stories out there of companies and individuals doing what they can to help front line staff, essential workers and well, all of us really.

The commitment to putting people before profits has been impressive.

Now don’t get us wrong, we know companies need to make money and consider profit, which just makes the work many of these organisations and teams are doing at a time when there’s more pressure than ever on businesses even more reassuring to see.

So, ICYMI* as they say, here’s a round up of some of the stories my colleagues and I spotted and shared last week from our #positiveposts #engineerstotherescue and #helpthemakers series over on our Escape Recruitment Services page.

You’re sure to spot other stories – we’d love you to share them with us so we can highlight them in our future posts and help spread some much-needed positive news with others.
