3. Arrange a complimentary strategic review

CEOs say that complexity is their companies’ biggest obstacle when it comes to implementing strategy, with an average success rate of strategic execution as low as 50%, 1ovmany has found. Through its consultancy work, 1ovmany has observed that the main barriers contributing to this (and therefore hindering organisational growth) are unsynchronised teams, slow response to change and a disconnect between technology and business. It understands the challenges and complexities that come with communicating across an organisation and executing strategy, and works to help organisations to unify teams by connecting business and technology in order to accelerate success. 1ovmany is currently offering a complimentary strategic review to provide UK businesses with objective insights to alleviate these problems and adapt for the future.

4. Modernise your office with a snooker or pool table

These days, potential employees expect a little more from their working environment. Adding something fun to the workplace can make you a more appealing employer, with the added benefit of entertaining clients, too. Sir William Bentley Billiards, which designs and makes bespoke pool and snooker tables, has more than 40 years’ experience of restoring and reproducing antique billiards, all of which are handcrafted in the UK. It also offers dual-purpose tables, which can be particularly beneficial for offices short on space, with options to roll-over – ‘turning’ stylish tables into a top-quality pool table – while others have precision-engineered mechanisms to lower the table for everyday use and then raise for playing. Go online to see what might work best for you at

Years ago, having a team of employees in the office was the norm. Nowadays, businesses are outsourcing to other agencies as it’s increasingly possible for companies to achieve the same output at a lower expense. Not only is it cost-effective, but it also gives senior stakeholders time to focus on important business tasks.
