Tiger give back to the community in 2019

  • Posted on: 9 January 2019

We are passionate about supporting people both inside and outside the business

As part of our “give back” to the community, we will be formally partnering with two charities in 2019, one is confirmed as Innercycle (1179976) and the other will be announced shortly.

We very much look forward to supporting this excellent cause during the year and have already planned monthly themed staff lunches, prize raffles with donations from our valued suppliers and local businesses and our Tiger Three Peaks event planned for July.

The Chief Executive of Innercycle CIO, Michael Martin, commented on Tiger Communication’s nomination of the registered charity,

“On behalf of the trustees, my colleagues and our beneficiaries, I’m thrilled that we’re partnering with a company so committed to staff wellbeing. With a management consulting background, I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of working alongside literally hundreds of management teams in my time, reasonably placed to observe that the ethos and ‘feel-good vibe’ among Tiger’s workforce is incredibly heartening. It’s no easy task to grow a venture while retaining talent and many organisations could learn from Tiger's example, which could help reduce absenteeism and presenteeism with significant benefits for the bottom line and individuals who work so hard.”

Mr Martin went on to say, "Devonshire NHS Trust report that every 80p spent on promoting wellbeing in the workplace can save £4 in the cost of lost productivity and replacement temporary staff, notwithstanding alleviating the devastating effect of mental ill-health on those suffering and indeed upon their loved ones. Awareness raising by Tiger and their events to help raise funds to further our work is of immense value and we look forward to developing local community projects with their support. Indeed, we welcome the help of other partners in the area and farther afield, so please get in touch with Ben Nicklen at Tiger or myself via our respective websites to learn more about Tiger Communications and Innercycle.”

Tiger’s MD, Ben Nicklen, explains the passion for supporting the work of Innercycle:

"Cycling played a significant part in the life of Tiger’s founder, Brian Hoadley, who sadly passed away two years ago. Based in the Ringwood area for over 30 years, Brian’s legacy as a keen supporter of young and old riders – often gifting equipment or sponsoring those that needed it – is being furthered by our group CEO, Stephen McCallum with the full support of the Board. Our staff have been offered one extra day's leave to volunteer with a partner charity or one of their choosing and, in valuing the wellbeing of our 43-strong team and among the wider community, we’re delighted to make this commitment during 2019. We’ll be undertaking several events throughout the year to raise awareness and to support such vital work on behalf of those with mental health concerns. Several of us in Tiger Communications are active road and off-road riders, very much believers in the benefits of cycling, as well as the value of fulfilling, purposeful work, evidenced by many staff members loyal to the firm for decades. Tiger's culture and values lend well to the aspirations for Innercycle’s beneficiaries and we look forward to fostering a long-term collaboration.”
