Company Updates

With the first month of the year wrapped up, we’re officially feeling ready for the year ahead. 2022 is a big year for us at Resolution IT, with the company celebrating its 15th birthday! Planning has begun for our 15th anniversary celebrations; conservation projects, community initiatives and team challenges (not to mention our big birthday bash). We have also committed to 15 Resolutions to celebrate 15 years of Resolution IT, the first of which was our January Step-Count Challenge, which you can read more about below. Keep an eye on our social media to catch our updates as we announce them.

Part way through the month, we were delighted to welcome our team back into the office after weeks of home working. On the first Monday back, we caught up in the kitchen over some fresh bacon rolls and made plans for some exciting team socials to make up for lost time. A big part of what makes us who we are is our collaborative spirit and sense of community, so being able to work together in person makes all the difference.

In an effort to fight the January blues, our Health & Well-being committee organised a Step-Count Challenge, which ignited our competitive spirit and got us out and about, walking as much as possible. We were amazed by how many steps we managed to rack up, with 15 members of the team smashing the 100k mark. It was a close call, with 3 team members surpassing 400k steps, but Vaunda Starkey took home the prize for achieving an incredible 466, 845 steps! This challenge was our first of 15 Resolutions to celebrate 15 years of Resolution IT.

Client Updates

Our second Modern Bytes lunchtime learning sessions, which focus on Cyber Incident Preparation & Response, will be hosted in February and March with three session dates available. Lead by Nick Robilliard, one of our Information Security Consultants and our lead Trainer for all things cyber security, the sessions will cover the definitions and reasons behind preparing a response to a cyber incident, how to make an incident response plan and ultimately, how to test that plan. You can sign up by emailing your account manager.

Our new Cyber Security Fundamentals booklet was published this month, which you can download for free here. This resource takes you through the top cyber threats to look out for, the fundamentals of an effective cyber security regime and how Resolution IT can help you stay on top of your business security.

Team News

Moving onto team news, we’ve had a string of promotions this month; for Nick Girauld, Luke Corbin, Oscar Richardson and Ollie Le Prevost. You can read more about their new roles here. Ollie’s promotion to Head of Cloud Solutions is part of an exciting development within our Cloud Solutions team, which we go into further detail about here. It’s been a great month for Ollie, who also achieved two exam certifications this month; DevOps Engineer Expert and Azure Network Engineer Associate. You can find out more about Ollie and his specialisms here.

Our colleague of the month for January is Jo Penney, for meeting our company value of commitment. Jo has put in a lot of extra time throughout January to finish end of year tasks, proving an invaluable asset to the company and a real support to her team. Thank you and congratulations, Jo!

We had a lot of big work anniversaries this month too, with Pierre Jehan celebrating 9 years, James Ogier reaching 7 years, 4 years for Cole Osborne, 3 years for Luke Williams, 2 for Sam Roberts and 1 year for Joshua Chaloner. Congratulations to you all and thank you for the continued hard work!

We hope you all had a great January and your year is off to a great start. We’re certainly excited for what’s to come and we can’t wait to share our plans with you all.
