2017 marked Agenda’s 20th year in business and what a year it has been!

We attended CIPD 2017, which saw some of our Screening Specialists leave the office for a couple of days to speak with and meet their clients – it was great to put names to faces!

We’ve seen triple audit success yet again, passing with flying colours in ISO 27001, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.

We said a huge well done to Chris Withers, who passed his exams to become GDPR certified and is now Agenda’s GDPR Practitioner. Look out for information regarding his half day interactive workshops to help you get ready for May 2018!        

We won The Regional Business award for ‘Commitment to People’ from the Chamber of Commerce, and The ‘Business Innovation Award’ at the Chamber Bridlington and Yorkshire Coast Business Awards.

We were also runners up in the Hull Daily Mail Business Award for the Medium Business Category and the National Business Award from the Chamber of Commerce. 

We received fantastic Great Place to Work feedback from staff, alongside amazing customer satisfaction feedback.

We said farewell to Paul as MD, he is now Charmain of Agenda, and hello to Norman who is our new Managing Director! We also saw huge expansion to our already growing Screening Team with two very important appointments; we welcomed onboard Carl – our new Director of Screening and Brandon – our new Head of Business Development.

We also gained a new Finance Director in Gary and a new addition to our Business Development Team – Ben.

Finally, our charity of the year, as you may have seen, was the incredible Yorkshire Air Ambulance. We’ve been busy all throughout the year with various charity events including dress down days, bake sales, silent auctions, raffles etc, and are pleased to announce that we have broken our previous charity record and raised the most money ever for Yorkshire Air Ambulance. We cannot wait to present them with the final number at the end of the year.

We'd like to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all the team at Agenda.
