LED BY head of indirect sales Gavin Davies, a team from Alphabet’s Partner division decided to take a day at the seaside.
But instead of a day of sun cream and ice cream, the team armed themselves with plastic pickers to clean up Durley Chine beach in Bournemouth.
Gavin explained: “Every Alphabet employee is entitled to a couple of ‘corporate social responsibility (CSR) days’ every year which can be used to support the work of local and national organisations.
“We decided that a ‘beach hoover’ – where we collected up plastic as well as other bits of rubbish from the coastline – would a great way for everyone in the team to get involved and make a personal contribution to addressing the problem of plastic in the seas and around the shores of the UK.
“In the Indirect Sales team we have an approach called ‘Limitless’. Because by working together, supporting each other and using our individual skills and strengths, there’s no limit to what we can achieve – and this was a great example of Limitless in action. The team achieving a great result.”
