Global Colleague Month

Global Colleague Month

Thank you to everyone who shared their stories and helped us to celebrate Global Colleague Month in July.

We have over 41 different nationalities across the group in Ireland and UK, and we were delighted to have the opportunity to spotlight different team members throughout the month – it has given us such an insight into their traditions and cultures and we are all the richer for what our teams have shared – thank you to all those who participated.  

PREM Group are proud to hold a Bronze award from Investors in Diversity and in our last Great Place to Work survey we were thrilled to see our score for Diversity and Inclusion was 91%, a heartwarming recognition of the efforts of every team member to welcome everyone to our team.  As part of the Investors in Diversity programme we updated all our policies to ensure tolerance, equality, inclusion, and understanding were at the core of how we deal with people, and we took the opportunity to share these policies with all the team early in the month. In the spirit of inclusion and to reinforce these values we held weekly LiFT sessions on the theme of Empathy and Understanding. “Empathy is about finding echoes of another person in yourself” the LiFT themes help us to make small changes in our lives to be better leaders within our circles of influence.  

We held a Wheel of Fortune Raffle as a small thank you to those spotlighted and those who participated in a LiFT roundtable. Congratulations to our winners.

The feedback from all our team members has been positive and everyone was delighted to learn more about our colleagues and the delicious national dishes were much appreciated.
