"Are you happier when your values and your workplace are in harmony?‏"

When: Fri 29th April to Mon 2nd May 2016

(May Day Bank Holiday Weekend)

FaithInWork1

Good Works logo Together for the Common Good logo William Temple Foundation Logo

with support fromUniversity of Liverpool logoHosted and curated in collaboration with the Boarbank Hall Augustinian Community,

to bring together professionals from across a multitude of work areas and public service to explore how best to restore our faith in work...

Within the present work ethos and climate, how can we begin to do this?

We hope this will be the first in a family of 'like mind' meetings.

We are acutely aware of the time pressure under which we all work, and the need to conserve the work-life balance. In view of this retreat being held at a Bank Holiday weekend we extend the invitation to spouses, partners and families to join us at Boarbank, to contribute in whatever way they wish, and to enjoy themselves in the wonderful countryside.

Have a look at the GOOD WORKS webpage for this retreat, and download the Rich Picture. There's so much in it you'll need a bit of time to take it all in. But it'll be worth it!

Beautiful beginnings...
