How did we do in Q3?
As the leaves start to change colour and the weather transitions from summer to autumn, it's the perfect time to reflect on the achievements and milestones of the past quarter. At our agency, the third quarter of this year has been an exciting and transformative period. We've dedicated our time to making a positive impact in our community, celebrating sustainability, and engaging with inspiring individuals. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at our Q3 journey, which was marked by 214 hours of volunteering, a prestigious award, enlightening interviews, and our commitment to reforestation.
One of the core values that drives us is the desire to give back to our community. During Q3, we dedicated a whopping 214 hours of our time to volunteer work, primarily with the Gympanzees Charity in Bristol. Gympanzees provide inclusive and accessible play and exercise opportunities for children and young people with disabilities. The experience of working with this beloved charity has been incredibly rewarding, reminding us of the power of empathy and collective effort.
We also rolled up our sleeves and got our cook on at Refugee Kitchen in London. This initiative is all about preparing and sharing delicious meals with refugees and asylum seekers. It was a heartwarming experience, filled with compassion, and the shared love of food.
We are thrilled to announce that we won "Most Sustainable Recruitment Agency" award at this year's Recruiter Awards. This accolade reflects our dedication to promoting sustainable practices and making environmentally conscious decisions. Sustainability is not just a buzzword for us; it's a way of life.
We also had the opportunity to engage with nine remarkable individuals through Women Rock. Among the amazing folk we spoke to was Melody Sylvestre, who recently graduated from the iO Academy. Her path to tech, originating from a career in astrophysics, serves as a testament to the limitless possibilities in the world of technology. Melody's story, along with those of other incredible women, reminds us of the importance of diversity and perseverance in the tech industry.
Finally, in collaboration with the Future Forest Company, we planted a total of 93 trees during Q3 - we thought the air was smelling fresher this quarter!
