Russell Bedford members from all around the world gathered online on Friday, 2 December 2022, to celebrate the network, its members, and the many accomplishments of the entire organisation on taking you further day.
The taking you further day initiative, now in its fourth year, was developed to assist Russell Bedford members in actively engaging with the Russell Bedford brand and bringing member firms together to celebrate the network’s core values.
Members participated in activities focused on at least one of the network’s fundamental values and components that make up Russell Bedford’s DNA and contribute to the successful network it is today. These activities included:
Employees from our member firms provided unique details about themselves, which were added to Russell Bedford’s very own online world map, further highlighting the global reach of the network.
Members also participated in a fun virtual party where they were able to interact with colleagues from across the world and share information about the events and activities that their companies were hosting for taking you further day.
Various member firms arranged team-building activities, inspiring their employees to look after their health and wellbeing by defining goals and incorporating physical and other activities into their teams, which further fostered deeper bonds and more fruitful collaboration.
Other firms opted to support their local communities by offering their time and taking part in charitable events. As a consequence of their efforts and goodwill, many disadvantaged people in their communities were helped.
Member firms used taking you further day to further establish the key to all Russell Bedford member firms — EXCELLENCE. Many held training sessions for their employees to demonstrate how they can contribute to sustainable growth by unlocking the principles of emotional psychology, by building synergy and healthy collaboration between employer and employees and many more.
Stephen Hamlet, CEO of Russell Bedford, speaking about the special day, said: "Once a year we take time away from our normal business of servicing clients to celebrate our togetherness and promote the core values embedded in our network on taking you further day. It is always wonderful to hear of the efforts around the world that members give, particularly on this day, to helping others; several focusing on a commitment to charitable initiatives.”
He added: "It is indeed that energy, the development of people and the building of relationships, that truly brings this network together. This year has been another incredible year at Russell Bedford and I look forward with anticipation for what 2023 will bring to our firms and our network as a whole.”
