Charities cause temporary gender divide for NES

Charities cause temporary gender divide for NES

While Marks & Spencer boss, Stuart Rose has created a stir recently with his comments on the glass ceiling and the gender-equality debate, recruitment firm NES has divided its workforce in the name of charity.

Its unusual to hear a positive story about wide gender divides in the workplace these days, but NES is pleased to report that its fundraising efforts in Cancer Research UKs women-only Race for Life and in The Childrens Societys 5-a-side football tournament at Old Trafford raised 1,500 and 1,000 respectively for each charity.

Its great to see the ladies beat the gents, laughs Stephanie Crosbie, who heads the NES Groups charity committee. On a serious note though, were very proud to be supporting these charities and are pleased that, in this case, a bit of male-female competition has been worthwhile, she concludes.

NES established its charity committee last year, supporting Macmillan Cancer Support and North West animal welfare charity, the Society for Abandoned Animals. The company has pledged to increase its charitable support this year through a variety of fundraising activities.
