Lifes2good are teaming up with local charity, Galway SAMARITANS this year in an attempt to raise much needed funds and awareness for the charity. Galway SAMARITANS are currently undertaking a refurbishment of their Nun’s Island location and Lifes2good is making a €25,000 donation as well as attempting to help raise a further €25,000 throughout 2016 through a number of community initiatives.

Lifes2good CEO, James Murphy said “The Galway SAMARITANS is a fantastic charity that does amazing work on a daily basis. Everyone involved in the charity are 100% voluntary, they don’t get paid. To be part of raising funds and awareness is an honour and I just hope that it will encourage other local businesses to consider doing the same as we’d like to double the amount if possible. Depression and suicide is something that has touched everyone’s lives and having services in place to help reduce and support is vital.”

One such initiative is a 5km run/walk that took place Thursday the 15th of September at 7.30pm in Rinville Park, Oranmore. Huge thank you to our additional sponsors CUBE, Nestor’s Supervalu, Galway Bay Golf Resort and Teamsport.

Here are some snaps from the evening!

Lifes2good are delighted to be teaming up with local charity Galway SAMARTIANS. The SAMARTIANS is a UK & Irish charity which provides support services for any individual who just need to talk. Their key message is that you don’t have to be suicidal to get in touch, if anything is bothering you just call.

With over 20,000 volunteers based in 201 branches across 5 nations, they are actively involved in a community near you. Volunteers work to try and raise much needed funds to support the service, which is free of charge to anyone who may need it.

Lifes2good is working hard to create awareness and funds over the course of 2016 through a number of incentives. The first step was getting involved with the annual Flag Day in which volunteers flood the streets of Galway with collection buckets. The next event is a Cyclathon in which teams of 5 compete against each other on exercise bikes with the winners being the team who get the longest distance overall. It is hoped that this event will raise lots of awareness and promote positive mental health by getting involved in a group sporting activity. This will be taking place April 30th, 2016 in Galway’s Eyre Square.

If something is troubling you, no matter how small you may feel it is, get in touch by calling 116 123.

LIFES2GOOD ANNOUNCED AS ONE OF IRELAND’S BEST MANAGED COMPANIES!

Lifes2good has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme. Lifes2good has demonstrated superior business performance for the fourth year running, and was recognised at an awards gala dinner in Dublin on 4 March 2016.

 

The awards event in Dublin’s Convention Centre marked the eighth year of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland. The awards were attended by over 800 people from the Irish business community. Frank Ryan, chair of the independent judging panel, was keynote speaker on the night.

 

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland, recognises indigenous Irish companies across Ireland operating at the highest levels of business performance. The network of 115 Best Managed Companies now employs over 47,000 people around the country and has a combined turnover of almost €10bn. Recognising the importance of overseas markets for Irish companies, the Best Managed Companies also recorded an average growth in export sales of 161% over the last three years.

 

Commenting on the award, James Murphy, CEO & Founder of Lifes2good said:

“We appreciate and value the recognition that Deloitte Best Managed Company award brings and perhaps more importantly the independent validation of Lifes2good’s business performance excellence for four consecutive years.   The fact that we have been ranked as a gold standard winner is testimony to our world class expertise building iconic global health and beauty brands.”

 

Sixteen companies from around Ireland were awarded Best Managed status for the first time this year, following a lengthy qualification and judging process in which the complete performance of a business is assessed, moving beyond finances to such areas as operational excellence, strategy, and human resource processes. Eleven platinum award winners – companies that have retained their Best Managed status for seven consecutive years – were also recognised on the night.

Eighteen companies were also presented with the gold standard accolade having secured Best Managed status for a fourth consecutive year. An additional 70 companies re-qualified having upheld the standard of a Deloitte Best Managed Company, following a comprehensive review process.

 

Managing Partner of Deloitte and judging panel member, Brendan Jennings commented:

“Congratulations to all the 2016 winners. All the companies here tonight are at the end of a long process of evaluation, which makes their Best Managed designation even more rewarding and valuable as a marketing tool for their business. It is clear that these companies make an invaluable contribution to the Irish economy – employing 47,000 people and generating turnover of €10bn.”

 

Sasha Wiggins, CEO of Barclays Bank Ireland, added:

Each of the companies being celebrated today have demonstrated their ability to apply best practice management across a wide range of business areas – something we have witnessed first-hand as the lead sponsor of the programme for the third year in a row. It has been a pleasure to mentor and support the management teams of these companies over the past few weeks and months and on behalf of everyone at Barclays, I would like to congratulate them on this wonderful achievement.”

 

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland, is open to companies from all 32 counties on the island of Ireland. It is the only awards programme that considers a business’ performance from every perspective. Details of entry for the 2016/2017 programme will be issued in the coming weeks on www.deloittebestmanaged.ie. The Best Managed designation is an important marketing tool for the winning companies – but, perhaps most importantly, the awards provide a reason to celebrate the efforts of the entire company.
