Your community

Intro to Your Community

"Great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people"

            Steve Jobs  (co-founder of Apple Inc.)

We feel its important to create a community that we feel connected to, whether you work from home, remotely or in one of our clinics.

Therefore, we encourage you to attend and get involved with as many of our events and activities to help you feel part of the wider team.

BBQ & dress down

During the Summer months, the teams at Head Office get competitive and try to outdo each other at monthly fundraising BBQ and themed dress down days.

Each month a different team is responsible for hosting the BBQ, sometimes with a fun theme, previous themes have included; Garden Party, Eurovision, Notting Hill Carnival and Movies.

We don't like the fun to end with Summer though and our themed dress down days continue throughout the year on the last Friday of every month. Some of our highlights have been:

  • A flipping good pancake day in February
  • A spooktacular Halloween with pumpkin carving competition
  • A sweet gingerbread house building competition at Christmas

Competitions

 

We hold great competitions throughout the year that everyone can get involved in. Some of them have included:

  • Our annual photography competition, gives you the chance to submit your photos for inclusion in the Company calendar. Our volunteer judges always have a hard task of picking just 13 photos for inclusion in the calendar from  the hundreds of photos entered.
  • Our Halloween pumpkin carving competition saw 7 Head Office teams go head to head to see who could carve the scariest pumpkin, decided by a public vote on the IPRS Health Facebook page.
  • Colleagues from across the UK took part in a Steps Challenge to help raise money for charity and to take the prize for the highest number of steps.
