International Women’s Day 2022 – Break the Bias

To mark this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD), we’ve been collating case studies for our clients and getting great examples of women in business, engineering, manufacturing and construction out into the media. We love bringing these stories to life and capturing the skill, hard work and commitment that all our clients demonstrate in their fields. So now it’s our turn to look inwards and consider what this important day means to us. Here’s what our Deputy Managing Director, Hannah Elwell had to say about this year’s theme, breaking the bias.

USG shines a light on mental health and physical activity with new challenge for LAMP

Team USG has taken on another challenge to raise money for LAMP, Leicestershire Action for Mental Health Project.

Last November we completed a Lockdown Miles Challenge clocking up a fantastic 1,072.59 miles in four weeks, raising £ for LAMP.

Staff have now taken on the charity’s ‘Around the World 5km Challenge’ which sees those taking part complete a total of 5km a day during Mental Health Week (10th – 16th May 2021).

Signage business is perfect fit for USG

We are delighted to announce that we have launched USsigns, a new signage production and fitting business.

Having secured premises on Gladstone Street in the city centre, we are now in a position to bring all signage manufacturing for existing clients in house, as well as attract new orders nationwide.

Navigating Covid-19 together

It has been a challenging couple of weeks for the entire nation.  Businesses and individuals are being faced with problems on a daily basis for which there is no benchmark, no rule book and most worryingly no semblance of certainty.

At Unsworth Sugden we have been able to mobilise effective home working in order to protect our staff and their families. We are fully operational and continue to serve our clients in this time of need.

USG welcomes two new PR Assistants

With the continued growth of the PR department, we recently welcomed two new PR Assistants to the team, Alice Warner and Charlotte Spice. We put both of them in the hot seat to learn a little bit more about them.
