April was a crazy month for Mirus, with sponsored walks, bake-offs and many other achievements.
We started the month with three new people joining the MTeam. We're delighted to welcome our new starters for April 2019:
James Sherreard - Service Desk Engineer for the Yellow Team;
Mitchell Smith - Service Desk Engineer for the Red Team;
And James Mildren, Project Solutions Engineer
Welcome all three of you to the MTeam!
We also honoured Paul Titheradge as our Colleague of the Month – well done Paul! Our colleagues shared some kind words on Paul’s award, commenting:
"Paul's been really supportive and helpful and nothing is ever too much trouble."
"He was great covering for Bruce when Bruce was away."
"Always really helpful and motivational."
"Really on it delivering great customer service to our clients."
Our annual Mirus Bake-Off took place this month, with Roy Charman winning with his incredible, if not slightly terrifying cake.
This year’s theme was ‘The Bigger the Better’ and Roy clearly got the memo, packing his culinary colossus with a high-protein mix and topping it all with a staggering volume of chocolate pieces. Predictably, the MTeam thoroughly enjoyed eating it. Thanks, Roy!
Part of our commitment to delivering great service is the regular training and development of our staff. As such we’re proud to announce Joe Humphries, one of our apprentices, attained his IT Essentials qualification from Cisco with MK College Well done Joe. Joe is just one of our hard-working apprentices, working to gain the qualifications and certifications they need to deliver the high-quality service we’re known for.
We’re delighted to announce that we recently sailed through another BSI audit and successfully achieved certification to ISO14001 Environmental Management. This is our first Environmental Standard audit with BSI and an excellent achievement for all involved.
On a more leisurely note, some of the MTeam’s fitness fanatics completed the Parks Trust 25 Mile Challenge around Milton Keynes, raising money for Mind BLMK. Congratulations to Paul O’Conner, Pippa Loveridge, Laura James, Ryan Lightfoot, Paul Tomlinson, Aishling Savchuk, Nick Sanderson and Rachael Jefferyes - all raising money for a great cause and burning off some of that Bake-Off cake!
We finished the month making the most of the sunshine, with a barbecue for our Friday Feed. Thankfully the nice weather held out and Jack rustled up some great sausages and burgers for the ever-ravenous MTeam. Where would we be without him?
