At BJSS we support our people on their projects and also look for ways to make BJSS a great place to work.

    This event involved a discussion between a panel of BJSS colleagues who have a wide range of different experience of support within the company. They explored three key questions that can affect every individual:

    • What individual delivery support does BJSS offer?
    • What support does BJSS provide when change is requested for, or by, one of our people?
    • How does BJSS support 'you time' or simply having fun with colleagues?

    The event was followed by the panel discussing questions raised during the webinar.
