ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL! Committed to avoiding waste - Banner's donation delights local community

Jun 24, 2021 2:16:22 PM / by Banner posted in CSR, Charity


Demonstrating our ongoing commitment to zero waste to landfill; Banner donated 5,280 bottles of Hand Sanitiser to Trinity Methodist Church Mission in Castleford, Yorkshire.

Some years ago Banner achieved 'zero waste to landfill' across all its UK sites.  As part of this commitment we regularly donate surplus stock to support local communities.  Most recently we have provided easy access to improved hand hygiene through a donation of sanitiser to support those most in need.

The hand sanitiser has been widely distributed throughout Castleford to many different community groups, and all have been gratefully received. These groups include primary and infant schools, food banks, GP surgeries, sports clubs, and churches; as well as to individual residents who are involved in community activities such as litter picking.

The 2021 Workplace Digital Evolution

May 31, 2021 9:30:00 AM / by Banner posted in Working Smarter, Technology, Work from Anywhere


With the Pandemic ensuing turbulence on work life for the past 15 months, a return to pre-pandemic office life is becoming a more frequent discussion these days.

However, it’s suggested that buzz words such as ‘hybrid’ and ‘flexible’ working will still be around for a long while…

With the mass becoming remote workers throughout the pandemic, it doesn’t mean the end of the physical office is upon us. Predictions are that offices will become more hub-based locations for remote workers to meet and collaborate, which means technology will become key to success. These tech-centred spaces will require the usual suspects (Microsoft Teams, Zoom, etc) paired with hardware that makes the workspaces interactive and connectable. This switch in working dynamic will require seamless working between locations to ensure productivity is never compromised.

It's a legal requirement for anyone operating a business which handles personal data to fully comply with the rule of the GDPR, and this extends to ensuring all employees are aware of the obligations to securely destroy personal documents to avoid data breach.

As more employees work remotely, businesses must still remain compliant with the GDPR. Employees accessing sensitive data at home may be at risk of breaking rules, especially where paper data is involved.
