Investigo want to support their employees with their 2020 goals and what better way to start this journey than our 2020 #InvestInYou Benefits Fair. On 23rd Janaury our colleagues were given the opportunity to find out exactly how Investigo can support those new years resolutions. Our own People Hub and D&I stalls were joined by our external benefits providers, including Vitality, Fitness First, IFAs, Virgin Health Clubs and more to clearly demonstrate the full breadth of the benefits open to Investigo employees. Our colleagues could commit to our D&I initiatives, sign up for weekly yoga classes, take a health or wealth assessment, apply for our mentoring scheme or simply ask their questions directly to the providers. We were also joined by St Mungo's our charity partner for 2020, Future Frontiers and World Vision where you could commit to joining any of our charity initiatives from the Tour de Investigo cycle to a halloween abseil.
