Twenty two year old Demi, a single parent, joined the Foundation in February 2016 following a recommendation by InterServe – one of our valued community partners who identify suitable candidates for training and employment.
As our fab foundation continues to go from strength-to-strength, we are very excited to welcome our latest recruit, ex-Royal Engineer, Ryan Hartle. We caught up with Leeds lad, Ryan, 19, who gave us the inside track on his exciting first week as a data inputter with our busy team.
Companies from wide ranging sectors have given Nick Elletson, who heads our foundation, fantastic feedback on a presentation he gave about how we attract and retain great people.
Spearheaded by Manchester College, one of our recruitment partners, the employer engagement event was held to encourage businesses to work with the college’s recruitment arm and give people a second opportunity.
Its cake time again as we proudly announce that Alan Placid – our top sales supremo – has become our first Oil Trader to reach Post Graduate status.
Alan’s milestone comes at a particularly formative period as The Right FuelCard Company (TRFC) – a committed people champion which runs the Foundation – is marking unprecedented growth less than four years after launching.
When the clocks go back many of us may feel the urge to retreat under our duvets. For around two million people in the UK who suffer with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), coping with the winter months is a real challenge.
SAD is a form of depression that affects people during a particular season, although most people experience it over the winter when it is colder and there is less natural light. Almost 20% of people in the UK experience SAD with 2% suffering from extreme symptoms that can make everyday living unbearable.
The Right Fuelcard Company and Be Fuelcards are delighted to announce that both our businesses have gained the prestigious Investors in People status at our first attempt.
Investors in People, which sets the best practice standard for how businesses manage and look after their employees, believes that good people make a great business. And that is our ethos too – and one of the reasons we set up our ground breaking Bayford Foundation.
