On Friday Pat Russell visited DAA member Cherry Orchard Gardening Services (COGS).
Pat was extremely impressed by what she saw and wrote the following:
‘I had a great morning with the guys at COGS who showed me round and explained what they do. Anyone visiting couldn’t help but be impressed with the way COGS supports people to develop skills and independence. There is passion, excitement, enthusiasm and commitment in abundance. But most of all, there is fun!
Seriously impressed with the way all members of the team are involved in decision making, giving them a real sense of ownership. There are many businesses, small and large, who could learn a thing or two about employee engagement.
I’m really excited about the new Herringbone venture – a hub supporting DPULO start-ups – innovative while making real use of local talent at the heart of the community. I look forward to seeing how things progress.’
