Yesterday I blogged on the dangers of just talking about what you do ,rather than what you actually change.
Today I saw a lovely poem – on our internal social network. It’s written by one of our “Opportunities 4 Employment” customers. O4E is a 6-month paid placement aimed at offering people an apprenticeship and a career.
It’s really powerful and I ask you to read it. But there is one thing wrong with it. I’ll tell you what it is later.
Here it is:
Bromfords done so much for me
a tenancy – an O4E
they took a chance and set me free
I knew that i would stand my ground
work so hard make them proud
kept on going, stand out from the crowd
Challenged myself with every turn
confidence growing as i learn
be everything that they need and more
from 9am straight through till 4!!
To think that a few years ago
I was homeless, alone no place to go
no job, no home, no life, no me
OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYMENT saved Charley
The one thing wrong? The opening line.
It’s not about Bromford.
It’s about people like Charley.
