Agenda would like to say a huge well done to a recent participant in our Agenda staff challenge. Mic, from Agenda’s IT department has just successfully assisted 15 members of Agenda staff through an Open University ‘Introduction to Cyber security: stay safe online’ course, with all attendees gaining an Open University qualification.
The Staff Challenge was put together as part of our ongoing commitment to making Agenda a Great Place to Work, which is a key strategic objective for us. The challenge gave Agenda employees the opportunity to win £2,000 for coming up with a concept or idea that will help to better the business.
The concept behind Mic’s entry into the challenge was that he wanted to help employees to gain a better understanding of online security and how to protect their digital life, whether at home or at work, this meant looking at steps for how to reduce the threat of attack online and reduce the chance of you being susceptible to these kinds of attacks. All fifteen members of staff who participated in the course attended during their lunch hours, twice a week for two months.
