Profit share

IT looks to have been a very happy new year for staff at Manorview Hotels & Leisure Group. For while many of us will be working out to pay off our post-Christmas credit card bills, staff at the hotel group are looking forward to sharing out the first bonuses issued by its profit share scheme.

Manorview said it will be allocating 10 per cent of its profits for its financial year to March 31 to its HeartCount Fund, meaning that £82,680 will be distributed to 311 qualifying team members.

Health drive

STICKING, albeit somewhat loosely, to the post-Christmas theme, we rather liked the latest wheeze from Weight Watchers to promote its healthier eating agenda. As many of us look to cut back on calories after a decadent festive season, the health-focused brand this week opened a pop-up drive thru in London, at which it gave away one thousand free healthy meals.

We’d still prefer a cheeseburger.

Apps’ boost

A SCOTTISH start-up, which is said to have boosted parental engagement in over 280 Scottish schools, is to represent the UK at a major global technology show later this month.

Perth-based Apps Central is the only Scottish company to have been chosen by the Department for International Trade for the UK Pavilion at Bett 2018, a major global educational technology showcase, to be held at ExCel in London.

The Apps Central school app allows users to view a live calendar of all school meetings, events and activities, and filter information by school, year group and sport.
