Senior Management Update (Jul 20)

Thomas WheelerFounder, IR Global

Our team have been in touch with more members than ever before offering support, advice and further ways to maximise memberships during this period. In a new survey by Forbes* remote working has seen a 47% increase in worker productivity which has certainly been reflected in feedback we have had from our members. This new way of working has sparked creative and innovative ways of connecting with the group, sharing information and preparing for future opportunities.

We are pleased to see that so many of you are working closely together to seek collaborative projects and strengthen business relationships moving forward. Despite it being a challenging year, we have actually seen an increase in reported referrals (based on year or year stats) since COVID-19 and the situation has also led to numerous virtual meetings being hosted by our working groups. You can view our most recent Quarterly Activity Report here. If you do require assistance with your membership and/or reporting your referrals, please make sure to contact your Client Manager as they are an integral resource.

Diversity & Inclusion:

Within IR Global, we believe whether it be through our team or members, that we are stewards of our company culture, responsible for cultivating an inclusive environment. We seek to engage change across the IR Global network and reduce bias; be progressive in our aims to attract a diverse pool of talent to the group, clearly communicate our Diversity & Inclusion Policy and create a flexible, agile and supportive environment for all. We all as individuals and as professional organisations play an important role in championing and promoting diversity and inclusion. You can read more on our policy here.
