A treat for our new starters

We have four groups of graduates starting this Summer, three of which have already started with us, with the final intake of 7 grads joining us in September. With the strong intake this year (around 20), we thought it would be a good idea to treat those who’ve recently started with us to some mid-week fun.

We decided to go bowling and have some food at Roxy Lanes. We have a very social culture and environment at CM, but as we’re getting bigger (around 75 employees), the challenge is making sure new starters settle in well and have the opportunity to join in with the social element of our business. The majority of our graduates come from different cities and don’t necessarily have a big network of friends in Leeds yet, what better way to help bridge that gap than bringing them all together.

I believe that social integration and ‘settling in’, is often undervalued as an important factor of employment… after all, you spend so much time at work, it’s key that you actually like the people you’re spending your time with.
