Bennett Staff are once again proud to be supported Tameside’s community support group – Sandwich Angels please get involved and help this local cause who rely on the support of local people and business to help feed and comfort people and families living in poverty or homeless right here on our doorstep.

What another strange year its been, as a business we have embraced new systems invested in new technology. All our staff have been equipped with the tools to keep themselves safe and in turn ensure our out workers feel safe in going to work. Our clients have all the necessary precautions in place, testing, hand sanitizing, distance policies, masks etc.

Our door has remained closed most of the year and this has not impacted our business in fact we have had an amazing year and lots of success.

Beryl retired after 10 fabulous years, we wished her well and celebrated hard.

Sadly we said good bye to Jody who has been with us for 3 successful years.. Jody has successfully obtained a new role within a national agency where she can grow and flourish even more. We are super proud that we gave her a good start within the recruitment industry. Good luck Jody.

Business has thrived, don’t get us wrong its not been easy, changing our routine each month to suit the needs of our clients. The Business Plan has been updated and we have lots of positive things in the pipeline.

Our team have really adapted to this new norm of virtual meetings and who knows this could be a new way of working for us. We continued with staff working in bubbles to help reduce the spread and help to maintain our key objective which is keeping our service to all a top priority. We are certainly dictated to by our business and will continue to operate good business ethics. The great news we have been waiting to hear is that RTW digital checks are here to stay.

In October we finally managed to get out for a full team meal and celebrated missed birthdays, anniversaries, retirements and celebrated looking forward to new challenges.

We have signed up with a local mental health coach who has been in to give our team 10 top tips on maintaining Well being in the work place.

Tom won supercare person of the year – well done Tom.

We have introduced an acknowledgment board for our staff to thank another team member for a job well done.

We have signed up to an online training portal so our staff can learn as they go.

We donated to several charities including mental health, cancer research, Macmillan cancer, and donated over 48 selection boxes to Sandwich Angels to help local families living in poverty.

We ended the year by a lovely team meal out followed by a few drinks and games back at the office.
