They say the way to a salesperson’s heart is through their stomach – that’s certainly true of our Inside Sales team, so when they hit every single client target and exceeded team target by 10%, we took them out for a pub lunch to celebrate! Drinks and food – very happy stomachs all round!
Pop quiz, hotshots. Sales team, agents making sales. They’re smashing their targets; they deserve a reward. You’re the team leader… what do you do? What do you do? No, not “shoot the hostage”. Offer a raffle draw for every sale instead! Here’s our Network Infrastructure team getting up to speed with their latest incentive.
As our Lead Gen team has expanded over the last few months, we decided to welcome everyone aboard – literally! – so we hired a boat to sail 45 of us around Poole Harbour on a beautiful warm summer evening. The on-board bar and BBQ made sure we had more to drink in than just the lovely views, and by the end of the trip we all agreed with Ratty from the Wind in the Willows: “there is nothing –…
What is the #22PushUpChallenge? Originating in America, the 22 Push Up Challenge is designed to highlight the fact that every day, 22 ex-service personnel commit suicide due to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Combat Stress is the UK’s leading veteran’s mental health charity and Astute is proud to embrace this challenge in support of our veterans suffering from PTSD. To donate £5 to Combat Stress, please text PTSD22 to 70004.

We love meeting new people – especially when they’re joining the Astute family! Here’s our Mobility & Telecoms team making their new starters feel at home with lunchtime drinks and food at The George Tapps Bournemouth. Welcome aboard!
If you think a team hitting target is thirsty work, you should try one team reaching 105% of its target across three campaigns at once! No wonder the Unified Comms team was rewarded with drinks at Downes Wine Bar! Cheers, guys!
After a day talking turkey at work our Lead Gen team like to spend their spare time on strike at Hollywood Bowl Tower Park – so we treated them to a night out (but made sure they hit the weekly team target before they split). Everyone had a ball, although the losers were obviously guttered #TenPunBowling
Next time you’re stuck in traffic on your daily commute, imagine walking 10 miles to work and 10 miles back again every day, across stony ground in 100-degree heat. No air con; no comfy seat; no shade. Now imagine doing this barefoot. This is what life is like for the children of rural Burkina Faso. And this is why Astute has taken Giving Africa’sBarefoot Challenge – we asked our staff to go barefoot for one day to experience a fraction…
