Following two months packed with charity work, festivals, and sports superstars, Mirus saw a rather subdued month this July. Yes, even the busiest companies enjoy a moment of dormancy occasionally.
Nonetheless, July still had plenty of pleasant surprises up its sleeve, not least the scorching Summer heatwave. the MTeam even abandoned their usual dress code for two days of shorts, sandals and sun-tan lotion in an effort to combat the climate.
Despite the blistering heat, however, you couldn't keep a good team down. Our Marketing Apprentice Ronni Murray smashed yet more of her second module exams, scoring an impressive 90% in the BCS Level 3 Award in Principles of Coding and 70% in the BCS Level 3 Certificate in Marketing Principles. Nicely done, Ronni!
While existing team members were busy improving their skills, new MTeam members bought some fresh ones to the company this month. A huge welcome to our new Onsite Engineer Matthew Handscombe, our new Apprentice Service Desk Engineer Danil Clements and Eliot Allan, our new Service Desk Engineer for the Red Team. We're very excited to have you all on board!
There's one more person we're glad to have in the ranks this month - none other than our Colleague of the Month, Compliance Specialist Mandy Wilkinson! Responsible for maintaining and improving a number of our compliance procedures, including our Business Management System, our Complaints Policy and all of our ISO Accreditations, Mandy's efforts haven't gone unnoticed this month:
“She has to deal with so many people all over the business, and does a decent job of keeping on top of it all”.
“Having recently worked with Mandy during an audit, I was really surprised at how painless the process was. She’s simply the best person we’ve had in that role.”
“Gets on with improving Mirus without any fuss and works well with everyone she audits – even though she knows deep down they don’t want to be audited!”
Congratulations Mandy – and well deserved, we might add!
What better way to end the month than with a Friday Feed of our own freshly stone-baked pizzas?
Jack Winkel donned the ‘Luigi overalls’ and cranked the heat up further, helping the MTeam bake their own pizza creations with a classical pizza oven. We were invited to roll, flour and season our own fresh dough, ready for Jack to cook to perfection. And let’s face it – who doesn’t like a good Pizza Friday?
A comparatively chilled month for Mirus this July, then - perhaps for the best in this blistering heat - but certainly not one lacking in celebration. Let's welcome in August in even grander style!
