On Saturday, February 10th, at the exquisite Salomons Estate in Tunbridge Wells, Love was in the air and hearts were aflutter at the Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne ECA Branch Valentine's Ball. The event, co-founded by Daren Pool, MD at Triple Star Fire and Security Limited, and Andy Hartley, Key Account Manager at GCL Building Technologies Limited, not only brought together couples and colleagues for an enchanting evening but also aimed to generate funds for a noble cause — the Electrical Industries Charity.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion contribute to a supportive and thriving environment, whether in the workplace, or in day to day life. It is important to celebrate differences in those around us. Being inclusive ensures that everyone feels valued and has a sense of belonging. Treating others with respect and integrity promotes innovation, creativity, collaboration and leads to better outcomes, every single time!

The Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) is proud to announce Alison Chappell as its new Vice President, marking a significant milestone in both her career and the ongoing journey of the charity.

Time to Talk Day is a day to start a conversation about mental health. Talking about mental health isn’t easy, but a conversation has the power to change lives.

Financial Health

Money matters are incredibly prevelant in today's financial climate. Managing your funds wisely is an important factor to not only secure a stable foundation, but to protect your mental well-being too! With the rising cost of living and the economic uncertainty that we are all living through, we hope to shed some light on ways to strengthen your financial position.

Looking after our Apprentices 

Our apprentices are heavily impacted by the factors that are affecting our industry. On a lower wage and balancing college work with their training, apprentices are vulnerable to suffering with their mental health, whilst combatting the tribulations of the financial climate and the pressures faced in their early career. Together, we can work to create a safe space for those new to our industry and learning their trade.

Understanding Dry January

Dry January is an annual movement through which millions of people give up alcohol for January. This initiative is not only about abstaining from alcohol but also about raising awareness of the impact of alcohol on health, wellbeing and societal issues.

Veganuary: A Month of Plant-Based Living and Its Impact

January marks a special month for health-conscious and environmentally aware individuals worldwide: Veganuary. This initiative, which began in the UK, encourages people to adopt a vegan lifestyle for January. The movement has gained tremendous popularity, highlighting the benefits of a plant-based diet for health, animal welfare and the environment.

We can give a hand-up to everyone in our industry.
