We’re delighted that St Catherine’s Hospice has joined a select group of businesses in this year’s Forbes Solicitors Reinvention and Resilience Top 50.
The report features businesses which have demonstrated new ways of generating income and protecting jobs, whilst re-thinking service-delivery over the past 12 months in the face of the pandemic.
The report recognises: “The challenges for the hospice have been formidable: the pandemic meant switching many of the palliative care and support services offered by the charity online, and it cut revenue as charity shops closed and fundraising events were cancelled.
“But St Catherine’s has responded in truly innovative ways. New trustees with backgrounds in finance have brought commercial expertise; a new position of director of people and organizational development will support colleagues’ wellbeing and professional development; while a new e-commerce manager is enhancing online business.”
Oliver Burton, Chief Executive Officer at Forbes Solicitors, said: “Last year, when we published this report for the first time, many companies were in the eye of the storm. What started as a reaction to the economic crash of last year, has become a long-term opportunity to reinvent business models and continue on the path of innovation.
“The aim of the Reinvention and Resilience report is to identify the key trends that have helped the region’s SMEs improve resilience and reinvent the way they work. We believe businesses like these will be key to driving the region’s future prosperity, which is why we feel it’s so important to champion these stories.”
