The ‘feel good’ factor at work is vital in sustaining wellbeing.
Supporting a charitable cause is a wonderful way for employers to involve their teams in making a difference in communities and we’re thrilled to announce our partnership in 2019 with Tiger Communications!
Established in 1979 in Hampshire, now based in Ringwood with a subsidiary in France, the software development business is a leading analytics and reporting vendor in the unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) technology sectors.
Utilising strategic development partnerships and programs with Gartner Magic Quadrant vendors including Cisco, Microsoft, Avaya, Mitel and Unify (formally Siemens), Tiger solutions provide customers with metrics including user adoption, cost reconciliation and key performance indicators throughout the business.
Tiger’s MD, Ben Nicklen, explained the passion for supporting the work of Innercycle:
“Cycling played a significant part in the life of Tiger’s founder, Brian Hoadley, who sadly passed away two years ago. Brian’s legacy as a keen supporter of young and old riders – often gifting equipment or sponsoring those that needed it – is being furthered by our Group CEO, Stephen McCallum, with the full support of the Board.
Our staff have been offered an extra day’s leave to volunteer with a partner charity or one of their choosing and, in valuing the wellbeing of our 43-strong team and among the wider community, we’re delighted to make this commitment.
During 2019 we’ll be undertaking several events to raise awareness and to support such vital work on behalf of those with mental health concerns.
Several of us at Tiger are active road and off-road riders, very much believers in the benefits of cycling, as well as the value of fulfilling, purposeful work, evidenced by many staff members loyal to the firm for decades.
Tiger’s culture and values lend well to the aspirations for Innercycle’s beneficiaries and we look forward to fostering a long-term collaboration.”
Innercycle’s Chief Executive, Michael Martin, commented:
“On behalf of the trustees, my colleagues and our beneficiaries, I’m thrilled that we’re partnering with a company so committed to staff wellbeing. With a management consulting background, I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of working alongside literally hundreds of management teams in my time, reasonably placed to observe that the ethos and ‘feel-good vibe’ among Tiger’s workforce is incredibly heartening.
It’s no easy task to grow a venture while retaining talent. Many organisations could learn from Tiger’s example, to reduce absenteeism and presenteeism with significant benefits for the bottom line and individuals who work so hard.”
Michael went on to say:
“Devonshire NHS Trust report that every 80p spent on promoting wellbeing in the workplace can save £4 in the cost of lost productivity and replacement temporary staff, notwithstanding alleviating the devastating effect of mental ill-health on those suffering and indeed upon their loved ones.
Awareness raising by Tiger and their events to further our work is of immense value. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone at Tiger who have already raised almost £300 in support of our planned local community project.
Indeed, we welcome the help of other partners in the area and farther afield, so please get in touch with Ben Nicklen at Tiger or myself via our respective websites to learn more about Tiger Communications and Innercycle.”
