News 23rd May 2022 occupier engagement

When it comes to sustainability, at Workman we believe that actions speak louder than words. As such, we are keen to share ways to move towards eco-friendly lifestyles with occupiers across our managed portfolio.

This week, our Welcome team launched its own Sustainability Week, featuring activities and events for various properties – taking place both online and onsite – to offer tips and tools on how to be more eco-friendly, both at work and at home.

The timetable of sessions, specifically curated for the Welcome properties and their occupiers, gave teams and communities the chance to come together and take part in fun events – all focused on making ethical choices that deliver a safe and comfortable future to everyone.

Welcome’s Sustainability Week featured a lunch-and-learn with Paper Round to discover where all that recycling really goes; a hands-on session from Gardening with Curtis to plant a cherry tree in the workplace grounds, plus talks about planting herbs with free seed handouts at reception; a sustainably focused market day showcasing retailers such as Eco Bonobo and Neal’s Yard; and a drive to collect unused books and puzzles to raise funds for local charities.

At Workman, we’re doing all we can to help our occupiers and their staff enjoy their workplace in sustainable ways. Employees at Westside, Hemel Hempstead, appreciated the activities and events, with many taking advantage of the week’s fine weather to catch up with colleagues while learning about more sustainable lifestyles.
