Local business, ESP Group, to invest two days of staff time into supporting City of Culture

World leading transport and mobility service company, ESP Group is allocating all of its Hull-based employees an extra two days of annual leave, to encourage them to invest time into supporting this year’s City of Culture celebrations. Having been headquartered in Hull for 23 years, ESP Group is driving engagement for the initiative through a number of incentives and recognition schemes.

As well as additional time off, the Hull-based business will also host a ‘City of Culture Day’ for staff on the third Friday of every month, where employees will be encouraged to participate in activities. They will also have the chance to wear the Hull City of Culture merchandise, which is provided by the company to back the cause.

Terry Dunn, CEO at ESP Group, said: “It’s a huge achievement for Hull to be chosen as this year’s UK City of Culture, and for those that go towards making the city what it is. As a local business, we want to make sure we’re playing a part in supporting Hull during this incredibly exciting time and being as hands-on as we can. One of the main reasons Hull was chosen as this year’s winner was down to its strong sense of community and commitment to engagement, something we want to showcase through our involvement.”

ESP Group, who has a business club membership with the City of Culture, will also receive various event tickets from opera and ballet to family events and firework shows. These tickets are given to employees as incentives for achievements within the company.
