Cotton Court wins Bronze Green Tourism Award

By Comments Off on Cotton Court wins Bronze Green Tourism Award

We are proud to announce that we received Bronze Award from Green Tourism for our continued commitment to sustainability.

This year we plan too:

Continuing our efforts into 2013, and are always for looking for new ways to further improve our practices. We already have a number of changes and schemes planned for this year, including:
– Offering our customers a Fairtrade refreshment option
– Using locally sourced food and catering, thus reducing food miles
– Promoting use of car sharing, public transport, walking and cycling
– Continue our drive to reduce, reuse and recycle!

This award recognises our compliance in keeping our premises and surrounding areas clean and tidy, recycling, and reducing our Co2 emissions. In 2012, we have installed water saving devices in all toilets, reducing our water consumption by 30%; promoting the use of stairs instead of the lift – walking up the stairs just 2 minutes per day burns approximately 20 calories and helps the environment.

Today’s Hot Topic! Home vs Office?

By Comments Off on Today’s Hot Topic! Home vs Office?

 

Traditionally ‘hot desks’ or ‘hot desking’ was the term given to temporary work stations for employees on a adhoc basis. The term is thought to have originated in the early 1990’s and derived from the term hot racking – a system in which sailors shared bunks by sleeping in shifts. In more recent years businesses have adapted this method to provide companies and individuals with ‘desk space’ – a similar set up to the traditional hot desks without the daily ‘hunt’ for a new desk. Individuals can be allocated a desk on a weekly, monthly or even yearly basis with the same financial benefits as hot desking.

Permanent desk space is the ideal solution for businesses or individuals looking for a professional working environment without the large overheads of renting an office space. From as little as £25 per week professionals can be provided with a workspace including; furniture requirements, computer terminal, Wi-Fi, system hire and line rental. Working from home no longer needs to be the only alternative to renting an office space.
