Peak Indicators Team Day Includes Valuable Charity Work

Towards the end of October, it was time once again for the annual Peak Indicators team day. This year, it was decided that we’d combine charity work with general team bonding activities, with the day proving a great success.
Things got underway at the Casa in Chesterfield with pastries, coffee and an update from the Peak Indicators leadership team.
As part of these proceedings, our Chairman Andy Ball also gave a brief overview surrounding how the digital marketplace has evolved; before continuing on to cover where he saw it moving over the next 5 years.
This led to plenty of thought-proving discussion surrounding how we plan to really move forward as a company into data science. We’re especially keen to place focus on the development of applications that will further assist companies with analytics and IP.
Geo-Spatial & Mobile BI
Next, Andy discussed how Gartner are now predicting geo-spatial and mobile BI to be the next big areas for industry development. This is important for us, given that we always keep an eye on which technologies we need to be leveraging to continue offering our clients a world-class service.
Other issues covered before we moved on to the bulk of the day’s activities were:
- A fun Q&A for the leadership team
- Encouragement of establishing a work-life balance
- Plans to take our Hub development to the next level
Charity Work With Valley CIDS
The next part of the day – and the key team-building exercise – saw us board a coach to travel to Valley CIDS; an independent charity based in Derbyshire.
Valley CIDS do valuable work designed to benefit children, young people and families. This includes outreach work within schools, as well as the wider community. Their goal is to equip the people they work alongside with the skills they need develop their full potential in society.
Our time with them saw the Peak team work together to plant 1,500 trees, which were all donated by us. This was done so that we could support the Turner Farm Project. We wanted to help leave the legacy of a woodland for the children at the Farm where Valley CIDS is based.
Moving forward, this will enable the children to do forestry work, whilst it will also play a key role in assisting the charity with the expansion of their facilities.
The work planting the trees was a fantastic experience for the Peak Indicators team. If this is something you’d like to donate to, or you could see your own company getting involved in, you can find out more here.
After leaving Valley CIDS, we all made our way over to Maison Mes Amis for a great meal, as well as drinks and dancing. This rounded off what was and always is a great event. It’s always fantastic to bring the Chesterfield and London teams together and the team day was well-received once more by the teams from both offices.
