December was an interesting month in the ever-evolving world of IIMS. The phrase ‘all change’ springs to mind once more. A planned and fairly major office move was successfully undertaken. All staff have moved to new offices – the administration team coming together in one space and also the same for the accounts team too. You can read more details elsewhere in this bulletin. All in all I am pleased with the outcome and believe it makes our way of working friendlier and more efficient.
I would also like to reference the outbound team building day that the head office staff undertook in early December – once again more details can be found elsewhere in this bulletin. The team was set a series of challenges and tasks to overcome, both as a group and also in smaller subsets if they were to achieve their goal. All in all a worthwhile day and we learned a lot about each other.
Happy New Year to you if you are reading this. So what will 2018 hold? Well, I am acutely aware that for some members in certain parts of the world, (and in some specific surveying disciplines), the profession is a tough one and sadly likely to remain so.
