Meridian celebrates Head Office launch with Lord Mayor
On Thursday 28th July, we were excited to welcome the Lord Mayor of the City of Manchester, Donna Ludford, to launch our brand new Head Office in Dakota House, Manchester.
The Team moved into the new Head Office earlier this year following a collective design project with Maria Hatton, designer at Eatock Design & Build . The team at Eatock helped us to bring our vision to life by creating a bright, collaborative workspace for our team to work in, something we felt passionately about given the disruption caused by the pandemic over the last two years
Our Head Office is the centre of our many Meridian operations across the UK and having the Lord Mayor attend the launch was a huge honour for our team, with many of them attending in person, including several of our key clients and fellow occupants of Dakota House, plus the extended members of our team who attended virtually to celebrate from across the country.
Following a tour around the different departments within the office, the Lord Mayor discussed her past experiences as a temporary worker with our team and took time to learn more about the work we did. The Lord Mayor commented:
“You have got such a dynamic working environment here and it reflects Meridian as a company. As we all know, it is the little things that make a company great to work for – such as being able to bring your dog to work! Those little things matter to people and I can see how invested Meridian is in supporting its team.”
About the office launch, Meridian CEO, Derek Skelton said:
“We always strive to put our people first and ensuring they have collaborative and welcoming working environments is a key element in them feeling happy and comfortable coming into work. Meridian’s first office was in Altrincham, and whilst we now have over 33 locations across the UK, Manchester will forever be our home. On behalf of Team Meridian, I was delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor to the Grand Opening of our Head Office and look forward to our continuing contribution to our community.”
