A sneak peek inside the episode:

“People want to know how brands, companies, and services are engaging and doing better supporting our environment and contributing, but it’s also really important to staff – so to employees, attraction, and retention of staff is important in all sectors, and it’s very important in this sector, and it makes the staff feel great to know that they’re working on a project that’s got this, you know, these bigger goals I guess. And it is a way that the centre can also help deliver on their national quality standards, looking at contributing to a sustainable future. So it becomes something that the team can discuss as well.”
