“The feedback on Partnership Building has been very positive… We’ve found that improvements follow when staff are brought together and we have become a lot more productive as a business, with staff sending less emails and communicating better”

“This move has brought all of our office based staff together in a fresh new environment.. the large breakout area gives staff the opportunity to get together in an informal setting”
