Talking to the Telegraph about a potential plan that would allow carer’s access to a year off unpaid, CEO Adrian Harvey thinks it’s nothing a company focussed on its employees couldn’t weather.

If you know anything about Elephants don’t forget, then you’ve probably been introduced to Account Director Kirsty. As one of the herd, Kirsty enjoys to work from home – except for when it’s sunny, as she finds working outside problematic with the glare from the sun on her computer screen. But following on from a conversation with Adrian this morning, and his genius recommendation, she is now working outside like the rest of us. Amazing! Enjoy the sunshine Kirsty!
Today is national work from home day. Obviously not every organisation is cut out to have staff working from home, but where they can, we believe they can reap amazing benefits. At Elephants don’t forget, all our UK based staff work from home. Whenever we recruit we always grill new potential employees on how they will cope, especially if they have worked in an office previously. My conclusion, which some may not want to read, is that some people simply aren’t cut out for it! We pursue a high contact policy, especially in the first 90 days. We encourage other.

By Adrian Harvey I’ve been at it again, reading the paper and getting all worked up about what I’ve read. I changed papers from the Daily Mail to the Sunday Times in the hopes of being less irritated but then I read this naive article about Crowdfunding by Kiki Loizou. Kiki is the Small Business Editor for the Sunday Times and she was bemoaning the lack of regulation surrounding crowdfunding sites and the fact that, when compared to the Stock Market, the budding entrepreneur didn’t have to “provide any concrete financial information on their companies.” Now I don’t know Kiki but she.
By Adrian Harvey I’m writing this from the Building Societies Association Annual conference in Islington in North London and what an eye opener today has been. I am a huge advocate of what these friendly societies and mutuals do and how they are so true to their values and beliefs. When they say they care about providing a high level of service in their local area they mean it. You won’t see this lot closing branches and telling customers “trust us, it’s what you want” like NatWest have done in my local town! Similarly, the level of legitimate collaboration between.
