Many of our occupiers love The Blade’s location in Reading, and enjoy the opportunity to stretch their legs in our nearby green spaces. Once a week, our friends at Walk Works run an organised walk in Reading for occupiers to join. Caroline Gratrix, founder of Walk Works, explains her motivation behind setting up the group.
Choosing to be based at The Blade came naturally to the team from Altitude Angel. The most iconic building in Reading, with its spire and panoramic views across 40 miles, was the perfect location for a company whose focus is the sky.
Where we work, and the environment around us, has a huge impact on our productivity and wellbeing. Yet there’s no doubt about it, recruiting in most sectors is tough right now. Vacancies sit at an all-time high whilst those actively looking for work is falling, and that’s before you’ve even tackled trying to select people with the right skills, qualifications and ambition. So, how can you stand out in the crowd when recruiting new talent? Could your offices be part of the draw?
