A quick mention this afternoon for my old colleagues at AWA (Advanced Workplace Associates), who organize this week of charity activity in the UK, for BBC Children In Need. You can donate directly at the Just Giving page. The week has considerable support also, from CoreNet Global UK Chapter, BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT), BIFM, FM World, i-FM.net and others.
Workplace Week is a week-long showcase of workplace innovation that will be taking place between 5th and 9th of November 2012. It aims to raise as much money as possible for BBC Children in Need.
During Workplace Week, organisations with innovative workplaces are opening their doors during office hours to host a programme of visits, including the following:
- Innocent Drinks – 4th on this list of cool offices!
- The Guardian,
- BBC (the new Broadcasting House,London, and also Salford Quays, near Manchester)
You can register here – places are limited so book early.
This year’s Workplace Week Convention ‘Competing through agility’ is hosted by Microsoft at its offices in Victoria, London on Thursday 8th November 2012 will challenge conventional thinking on organisations, culture, work and the infrastructure that supports them.
Remember, all these events are being hosted by the above organisations, and all proceeds go to the BBC Children In Need charity. So do please try to attend one or two, and donate…or just give anyway! Thanks.
