Breakfast Club Launch

Another new week... another new initative for #TheWolfpack. On Monday the 14th of August we launched our brand new BREAKFAST CLUB  – serving free breakfast every morning, for our whole team!

We’re treating our staff to a daily selection of healthy breakfast options to encourage productivity and healthy living in line with our firm stance on employee wellbeing. Options include; Scrambled Eggs, Spinach, Granola, Yoghurt, Fruit, Wholemeal Bread, Avocado, Bagels, Nuts, Raisins, and more… & of course, washed down with hot drinks for those in need of their morning caffeine fix!

Jump Start To Our Weekend!

The #Wolfpack is getting back into gear, with an intense circuits class this morning!

 18 of our staff joined Dave at the Nuffield Health Fitness and Wellbeing gym this morning for an energizing start to the morning.

 Exercising all major muscle groups and incorporating cardio, Dave’s circuit class is heavy duty – good thing we have our three-day weekend ahead to recover!

 Our regular gym visits are all part of our award-winning Health and Wellbeing initiative, which we believe is at the core to our happy, healthy, motivated workforce.

 

Work Life Week 2016!

Its Work Life Week! To celebrate, we thought we’d explore how we invest in our staff and why we have such low sickness leave, and such high productivity and efficiency.

Pursuit has a happy, motivated workforce, the best in the world as far as we’re concerned! Our staff is our greatest asset, and so we invest a great deal of them. After all, you get out what you put in!

Our Health and Wellness Strategy is in place to maximise our employees’ personal happiness and satisfaction, and includes an onsite wellness coach and monthly visits from an NLP coach, aiding our employees in achieving their own personal goals.

We also have employees covered with all they could need to ensure a healthy lifestyle outside of work, supplying our employees with private health insurance, free gym memberships, and a stress helpline available in and out of work hours.

Across the board our staff are high-achievers, so we have all the right incentives in place to encourage this and ensure a productive workforce. These include industry-leading salaries and uncapped bonuses, as well as a £1000 training budget that supplies employees with development opportunities they deserve.

To top it all off, we also introduced a 4 day week for our staff, without lowering pay, meaning employees have more time to do the things that they love. After all, we only have one life, and who wants to spend it all in work?

But it’s not just us that invest in our staff, through all their hard-work and productivity, our employees have made Pursuit Marketing the success that it is today.  Work Life Week serves to remind us that work-life balance is vital to employees’ happiness, but also that the workplace should be somewhere your employees want to be. This is why we invest in our staff, and why Pursuit has achieved everything it has to date. I think Richard Branson put it best when he said, “Learn to look after your staff and the rest will follow.” Happy Work Life Week!

Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run 2016

Team Pursuit joined over 10,000 runners yesterday morning at George Square to set off in the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish 10k run! What a turnout, even the sun showed up in Glasgow to motivate everyone over the finishing line, & the atmosphere was incredible!

We are so delighted & proud of the team who all finished in amazing times, from 48 to 63 minutes, and many broke their PBs so a massive well done to you all! It wasn’t just about turning up on the day - months of training went on behind the scenes and the team raised lots of money for the great cause.

We’d also like to give a special shout out to Chris Hayes for tackling the behemoth of a run in just 48 minutes! An incredible result!

The organisers never cut any corners when it came to the encouraging the runners either, with a Strathmore water station and charity cheering points along the way. The music was supplied by Capital FM and there was bag pipes, dancers, cheerleaders and lots more going on! So thanks to all involved!

Also a big thanks to everyone on the side lines!! It was amazing to have so many supporters cheering on the runners – giving everyone that extra push. Most importantly, well done to the thousands of runners who put themselves to the test in order to raise money for some great charities!

What run can we do next, team?! #Wolfpack
