News Spotlight Are we doing it right? Effective meetings in Microsoft Teams

Since the Covid onslaught, businesses worldwide have adopted Microsoft Teams in place of meeting in person. And while it’s true that many of us are now adept with the software, it’s likely that others still use only the bits that suit them best. While we may get through the working day in one piece without some functionalities and etiquette, we could probably work better with the full toolset to hand. And why not? There’s still a long way to go before we’re all back in the office.

The Lighthouse Club and QEM: because two lives lost is two too many

Every single day in the UK, two construction workers will take their own life.

Let’s think about that number. In just a year, that’s more than 700 people left without someone to grow old with. Perhaps 1,000 children without a parent. More than 700 households facing life without an income. And around 700 teams in shock about the colleague who ‘seemed okay’.

And that’s before we even consider the utter despair that brought that person to consider suicide as the best option. Help is out there, and at QEM we’re doing our own small bit to make sure everyone knows.  

The Lighthouse Club     

We believe that every life matters. That’s why we’re supporting the Lighthouse Club, a charity that takes care of the emotional, physical and financial wellbeing of construction workers and their families.

How we can all be part of the solution

While pledging financial support for the Lighthouse Club is a great first step, at QEM we know we can always do more. Next time someone on your site seems more distracted than usual, take a moment to ask how they’re feeling. And don’t let ‘fine’ be the end of the conversation. By giving someone your full attention, and by listening without judgment, you might just save a life. Or even two.

Because two lives a day is two too many.
