International Women’s Day (IWD) is March 8 to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. Astute are proud to recognise the vital contribution of all of the women in our business – Thank You and Happy International Women’s Day!
On Friday, Astutians gathered at Sharkeys Sports Bar Bournemouth for our Annual Pool Tournament. In total, 24 employees took part in the event which was held in aid of Stroke Association. After a fiercely competitive tournament, we whittled our budding pool players down to the final three –Jack Francis Peter Rutterford, Paul Woods and Darren Robertson. After a best of 3 knock-out, there could only be one winner, and this year, that winner was our MD, Paul Woods! Thank you to everyone who took part…
Every Friday Astute runs a mufti day to raise money for various charities. All of our staff can nominate any charitable cause close to their hearts. Each staff member then pays £1 to participate and Astute doubles the collection before it is donated!! Recent Friday, not only did our lead generation team take part in mufti, but we also ran a Happy Hour incentive. Who’d have thought caffeine, chocolates and liquor could be such a motivator!!
At Astute we pride ourselves on being environmentally friendly so it’s great to receive confirmation that our efforts are not in vain. Not only have we saved 120kg of carbon emissions but we have also responsibly and securely disposed of our old IT equipment inline with GDPR and WEEE best practices.
Our Communications & Infrastructure team work hard as was evident when they smashed their targets in January! As a reward, we paid for them to play hard too and let their hair down for the night! Well done guys, here’s to another successful month overachieving targets!
Astute is proud to have supported two employees;Jack Francis Peter Rutterford and Connor Pearce in their Ultra White Collar Boxing events. Together they raised over £2000 for charity and to top it off, both won their respective contests – a huge congratulations from everyone at Astute!
Our staff worked exceptionally hard in 2017 and so our Christmas Party was an ideal opportunity for everyone to let their hair down and celebrate. Thank you to everyone who attended and to Declan, Sonny and the team at LE CHIC – Bournemouth for their hospitality.
Like Road Runner (beep, beep) and Speedy Gonzales, our inside sales team competed to achieve some tight deadlines and were awarded a Mexican Feast for their efforts (thankfully there were NO la cucaracha in sight!!)
