Marco Goes Beyond the Call of Duty

We are incredibly proud to announce that our Employee of the Month for June is Marco Carillo Romero!

Marco is part of Renovo, our joint venture company with our clients One Housing Group. He’s proved a great asset to Renovo, Chequers and the community he serves.

While carrying out his duties as a cleaning operative, Marco came across a person in need of medical assistance.

He used his initiative to deal with the incident in a professional way, staying beyond his contracted hours to help direct an ambulance to the scene.

He continues to impress at Chequers and we couldn’t be more pleased with the work he does, particularly in a scenario as challenging as this.

Well done Marco, you deserve it!

Chequers Supports ‘Croydon Works’

Yesterday morning we gathered with other local businesses to help launch ‘Croydon Works’, a new scheme designed to provide Croydon employers with job-ready employees.

The new job brokerage service is being delivered thanks to the partnership of Croydon Council, Croydon College and the Department for Work and Pensions.

The event, at Braithwaite Hall, was kicked off with a round of speeches from Croydon Council’s Chief Executive, Jo Negrini, Matthew McMillan from Boxpark and many more.

It was exciting hearing about the opportunities coming to Croydon, and we enjoyed speaking with the Mayor of Croydon and all the fantastic jobseekers, businesses and councillors that attended.

We want to be a key part of the transformation Croydon is about to undergo, and are proud to be part of this launch.
