It’s been a jam packed week here at Haelo HQ! Becky White, Communications Assistant, tells us what’s got the team chatting in This Week…

Pastures New

We are moving! It’s the end of an era at Haelo as we bid a fond farewell to the Mayo Building at Salford Royal which has been our home for the past three and a half years. We’ll miss our old HQ but onwards and upwards to the bright lights of Media City and The Victoria.

All our new contact and travel information is available here.

Positive Change

Our star guest blogger, Programme Manager, Kayleigh Price explores the positive nature of real life changes compared with the negativity and challenges attached to work based change.

I’ve been pondering something recently. Why is it that when we propose change in a work environment it’s often greeted with negativity and challenge, yet when we propose change in our home lives the reverse is often true? What is it that makes us react more negatively to work based change and what can we do to encourage a more positive reaction? I have a few examples of personal change that tend to get positive reactions, alongside their less well received work equivalents.
