Welcome to our first quarterly staff newsletter, where we share our vision for our company’s collective success. Without you, our best strategies and ideas go nowhere. We rely on and value your dedication. Under difficult circumstances your commitment enables us to keep the lights on. During these tough times the events industry has been decimated. Fortunately, we have partnered with clients who provide essential social support services to the vulnerable and marginalised in our society. I thank everyone who serves our clients’ beneficiaries with empathetic attention and diligence. The year is off to a good, solid start and I look forward to our team growing from strength to strength. Stay safe, stay sane, stay secure. We’re all in this together!


Security and cleaning work are tough at the best of times. During a pandemic they’re so much harder. You’re all smart about maintaining HSE safety guidelines but let’s chat about some mental health guidelines. Many are struggling, isolated from their loved ones and unable to relax with their mates. Now’s the time to make your physical and mental health your top priority. Improve your nutrition and mood with delicious plant-based foods. These free recipes boost immunity and energy. Can you define the goals and objectives that will bring you lasting joy rather than short-term gratification? Can you align your personal goals with your professional aims and ambitions? Life is meant to be enjoyed! Focus on your selfcare and you can better reach your goals. There is no greater joy than helping others, but first be your own best friend!


Many 1+ staff consistently perform their duties while holding to our core values of leadership, teamwork, empathy, perspective, integrity and trust. Sometimes an employee steps up to show an exemplary level of service to clients, customers and colleagues. We aim to recognise and reward such service with a small token of appreciation. Congratulations to our Star Performer, John Tierney! Thank you and enjoy your €100 voucher. Keep up the great work.
