Workplace visits in aid of charity

16 September 2010

Microsoft, Lloyds of London, Nationwide Building Society and Rio Tinto are amongst a number of organisations who have all agreed to participate in Workplace Week, to raise money for Children in Need and celebrate innovation in workplace design, technology and practices.

Workplace Week which takes place 1st – 5th November 2010 is being co-ordinated by leading Workplace consultants Advanced Workplace Associates (AWA). During the week, leading companies will open their doors and host visits to their workplaces during normal working hours to showcase some of their workplace innovations.
To attend visits, delegates book a place at AWA’s web site http://www.advanced-workplace.com , make a minimum donation of £25 per visit to Children in Need and attend a 1.5 hour presentation and visit led by senior leaders and experts from the host company.
‘Every year I see Children in Need on the TV, I think we should do something to contribute’ said Andrew Mawson, AWA’s Managing Director. ‘This year we’ve got our act together with our team, friends and supporters to create what we hope will be a valuable and enjoyable week of workplace visits, to showcase the best in workplace design, technology and innovative practices’
Supporting Workplace Week are The British Council for Offices, The British Institute of Facilities Management, FM World, PFM, i-FM, BCS, Workplace TV, and FMX.
Richard Kauntze CEO of the British Council Offices said ‘We are delighted to support Workplace Week which sets a benchmark on what organisations should be seeking to achieve from their workplaces’.
Ian Fielder, CEO of the BIFM said ‘Here in the UK we have some of the world’s leaders in workplace innovation and it’s great to see Workplace Week’s mission to share the best of the best and make some money for a great cause’.
Everyone from all the organisations are giving their time for free and AWA hope to raise over £10,000 for the Children in Need charity.
