Earlier in the year we invited colleagues to participate in focus groups to help us develop plans for a new staff meeting and networking space. Many thanks to all those who took part.

Thanks to your feedback, we're delighted to announce that our new Wessex House Staff Hub is now ready and will be open for business from this Monday, 19 December. Head down from 8am until 5pm next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and 8am until 3pm on Thursday for complimentary hot drinks, festive sweet treats and mince pies.

You can book the comfy booths with screens and the open tables are first come first served. There will be swipecard access for all staff with accessible automated doors at the entrance.

The refurbished space aims to enable colleagues to come together to discuss ideas, collaborate and strengthen relationships across and between departments as we explore new ways of working.

It has been designed to provide a mixture of formal and informal spaces where staff can meet colleagues or external contacts, with access to the full range of refreshments from the 4W café.
