Recruitment Group announces a positive 60% client growth since March 2020

Manchester-based Golden Egg Recruitment Group announces its significant growth across its business and staff population. Since the start of the UK lockdown, the Golden Egg Recruitment Group has grown their client base by 60%, while adding to their internal team by 15 people.

Their notable growth has been achieved through pivoting their existing business model to include flexible payment terms, offering funded payroll solutions, and providing bespoke commercial solutions to every client where needed.

“We had to act swiftly to adapt the way we do business, as we knew that the recruitment sector would be hit hard. We had no choice but to create and embrace the necessary business changes when lockdown began” says CEO Benjamin James Kershaw.
“Without using the government furlough scheme, our quick response and ability to adapt our enterprise was in stark comparison to many of our competitors, who scaled down their operations. We have been able to continue to grow by offering flexible recruitment terms to every single new client – which ultimately has led to the Golden Egg Recruitment Group securing new business and placing hundreds of candidates into roles across the UK, keeping people in work and the economy moving”.

Open data is provided in all markets worldwide and users need to search through the internet every time in order to find what they need. If you are able to find appropriate data, you download them in local environments, typically as text or CSV files, then use various
tools to modify and aggregate before analyzing them. It’s time-consuming and often blurs what you are trying to achieve in the first place.

ADS supports part of ckan and Dataverse API and you can easily import CSV data from various sites on the internet. ADS maintains the latest endpoints of ckan and Dataverse available globally, therefore you can simply select an instance from the list and immediately start searching data from the instance.

Avgidea Query Editor (AQE)
Avgidea Query Editor can let you submit a query directly to instances compliant to SPARQL specification and import query results into Google Sheets. There exists several SPARQL compliant data platforms such as Amazon Neptune or Virtuosso Universal Server. As long as endpoints are available on the internet, you may
import query results into Google Sheets via AQE.

Avgidea Data Search and Avgidea Query Editor are offered as an add-on of Google Sheets, therefore you may install from G Suite Marketplace using your existing Google account (G Suite or Gmail) and immediately start using both components under free plan.

MindCheck announces Free Plan for its business mental health KPI platform

MindCheck’s holistic, data-driven Organisational Mental Health KPI Platform offers a 360º approach to employee wellbeing

BRISBANE; AUS; 16 July 2020 – As the world moves through a collective existential crisis – where home-work boundaries blur, uncertainty looms, and family pressures mount – it has never been more important for companies to fully embrace and understand the whole spectrum of employees’ mental, physical and emotional health. In 2020, it is not enough to look at employees’ wellbeing or wellness on a surface level, or as a mere checkbox exercise.

Depression, anxiety and stress – which were becoming ‘business-as-usual’ pre-pandemic – have now reached global epidemic proportions and make a nasty dent on businesses’ bottom lines. Did you know that, even before the pandemic, 20% of workers worldwide were suffering from debilitating depression, anxiety or stress every year? And that this continuously costs businesses about 5.8% of their payroll? Most people are not aware, as these costs are usually hidden, masked by misinformation, stigma and wilful ignorance on behalf of companies.

In the wake of the pandemic, global healthtech player MindCheck, born out of a passion and need for a human-first, holistic and hyper-personalised mental health approach, has announced that it is rolling out its MindCheck for Organisations platform worldwide, making its free plan available to all organisations for the first time.

Understanding that all organisations – regardless of size, headcount, industry or country base – need tailored mental health support now more than ever, MindCheck’s free plan has now been made available for immediate sign-up on

“From start-ups to scale-ups to SMEs and corporates, we believe that an inclusive, holistic, adaptable and integrated approach to mental health and wellbeing should be baked into the fabric of all companies from inception,” says MindCheck CEO Ricardo Se Cestari.

Having run successful pilots across the UK, Germany and Australia – from big industry to co-working spaces and SaaS scale-ups – MindCheck’s goal is to become the go-to 360º assessment tool for workplace mental health. As award-winning culture change and D&I expert Vessy Tasheva of, a delivery partner, says: “MindCheck has been critical to understand employee engagement, productivity and capacity to learn at any given time as well as identify what can be positively or negatively impacting the organization on a scale.”

MindCheck’s success has thrived in its ability to look at people through a 360º lens, as its Contributing Factors™ Assessment takes into account not only recent life events, sense of purpose and level of workload, but connection with nature, quality of sleep, relationships, gut health, and more. Moreover, it offers dedicated intersectional programmes for underrepresented groups ERGs i.e. women in business, LGBTQ+ and BIPOC, and unique partner innovative future tech and gamification solutions such as Healium, a US-based clinically validated VR & AR tool for stress, anxiety & burnout.

Matt Boyce, CEO & Founder of Australia’s Human Connection Project says, “Simply put Mind Check is a fantastic, perhaps even necessary, addition to any organisation. The ability to get an in-depth understanding of your communities’ mental health and overall wellbeing allows you to measure and implement positive, proactive steps to an inclusive, resilient and well workforce.”

MindCheck is the brainchild of successful tech executives who have had their personal battles with anxiety, depression and debilitating mental illness. The three founders have a combined 10+ university degrees from top universities such as Cambridge, Harvard, in the areas of Applied Psychology, IT, Business, HR, and Law. Under their belt, they hold dozens of academic excellence and industry accolades and are working alongside distinguished academics from King’s College London, NYU, Harvard and University of Queensland, as well as policymakers from the European Digital Society, to create a new mental health tech playing field that is holistic, digitally ethical, inclusive, evidence-based and, most importantly, accessible to all.

About MindCheck
MindCheck is a B2B/B2C digital platform delivering evidence-based frictionless, holistic & personalised mental health support for individuals & enterprises. It helps over 10,000 individual users per month better understand their levels of stress, anxiety & depression, as well as manage the possible causes underlying them (MindCheck Contributing Factors™). All through a simple and data-protected two-step assessment of over 55 lifestyle data points. Since inception, we have helped over 120,000 people with depression and anxiety worldwide.

Simplification Institute Announces Launch to Support Companies Overcome Recession

The complexity management firm specialises in removing complexity to create leaner portfolios with higher profit margins to help companies overcome the looming recession.

DUBLIN, June 2020. Simplification Institute today announces its launch as Europe’s first complexity management firm specialised in consumer good companies. The firm is built on the core belief that Simplicity drives value and its proprietary approach, the Simplification Roadmap™ has delivered major efficiencies and multi-million-euro savings.

With empty shelves and unprecedented demand shifts in supermarkets, manufacturers now more than ever recognise the need for range rationalisation, portfolio optimisation and business simplification. A bloated portfolio results in slower growth, erosion of profit and impeded productivity. By effectively tackling complexity, manufacturers will improve product availability and customer service whilst delivering cost savings and margin improvements. Research shows that about 25-35% of cost in consumer goods companies is driven by complexity¹. The pandemic also highlighted the importance of sustainability and portfolio simplification can be a major driver of carbon emission reduction.

The Simplification Institute helps across all three steps of the complexity management process and is specialised in eliminating the root cause of complexity -not just the symptoms- resulting in a lasting positive financial impact. The firm targets large and medium-sized consumer good companies in Europe.

“Almost all multinational companies struggle with complexity, the point is to identify, and make the most out of complexity that adds value to your business and to eliminate ‘bad’ or non-value added complexity, and that is our core business,” commented Jo De Pauw, Founder of the Simplification Institute.

“Manufacturers who effectively manage complexity will thrive in the next decade” says Peter Soer, an internationally recognised commercial leader who has served in global and regional leadership teams at Unilever and Kellogg’s and runs an executive coaching practice. Peter has advised the start-up firm since its inception and he concludes “unfortunately, most companies don’t know where to start to cut complexity and this is where Simplification Institute is uniquely placed to make a difference.”

CITF announces new award for IT teams who excelled during coronavirus lockdown

London, 01 June 2020 – A new award “ Best IT team during Covid19” was announced today which aims to celebrate the impressive contribution of IT teams to business continuity during the coronavirus lockdown. Launched by membership organisation CITF, submissions are invited from today until 30 June and the winner will be announced at CITF’s Real IT Awards which will be held online on 17 July.

Technology departments have been one of the unsung heroes of the UK’s coronavirus lockdown. In a matter of days after the 23rd March lockdown announcement, IT teams in organisations of all sizes and across industry swung into action and provided the technology and services which allowed their colleagues to keep being productive. Thousands of businesses have managed to transition to an entirely new way of working thanks to the efforts of technology teams.

Running since 2004, the Real IT Awards are the UK’s most prestigious independent technology awards, and every year they aim to celebrate outstanding technology projects, teams, and innovations. To acknowledge that IT teams have played an invaluable role in smoothing business response to the lockdown, CITF chose to create a new award category this year to recognise IT teams that have gone ‘above and beyond’ when it comes to helping their organisations keep working in unprecedented conditions.

IT departments and business leaders are invited to submit or nominate applications via the Real IT Awards website before the 30 June deadline. CITF’s panel of peers and senior technology and business leaders will then review submissions. Judges will be looking for impressive stories supported by solid metrics that show:

• What the team did that delighted customers (internal or external)
• How the team rose to these unprecedented times and delivered solutions that helped their company to continue working seamlessly
• How they fostered extraordinary teamwork to accomplish everything they did

The final winners will receive a Real IT Awards certificate and recognition from industry peers.

Joanna Poplawska, CEO of CITF explained why the new award was created: “The fantastic work that technology teams do often goes unrecognised, and this is especially so during the coronavirus lockdown. IT teams have pulled out the stops to keep their organisations working, and so we wanted to celebrate the impressive work that they have done”.

Poplawska noted that a wide variety of submissions will be considered: “We are open to submissions from any industry or sector and are interested to hear about all kinds of response to the lockdown. Our judges are looking for examples of responses that had a measurable impact and which tell a compelling story”. She added that “we’d love to hear about creative responses to the lockdown or examples of technology departments whose work was especially impactful”.

The Real IT Awards will be happening virtually this year and will be hosted on the Real IT Awards website from 13 – 17 July from 4 pm each day. In 2020 the award’s charity partner is the NSPCC.

“Outlook Killer” Mailbird Announces Its Unified Calendar

California, USA; 20 May 2020 – Popular desktop email client Mailbird has just released a highly-anticipated new feature – the Unified Calendar, a comprehensive addition that allows Mailbird users to manage not only emails, documents and tasks, but now also includes events.

Mailbird is a desktop email client for Windows known for its high usability, multiple-account support, wide functionality and smart integrations that include management of documents, messengers, video meetings and more. Mailbird users often remark on a marked improvement in usability and features after switching to the platform from Microsoft Outlook.

The new Unified Calendar from Mailbird has created an exciting new way to manage events. The platform allows users to edit meetings, send invitations and use other matter-of-course features as normal, but now also easily unites all your calendars from any provider in the same interface – without any compatibility issues. The calendar also has a convenient sidebar view that allows you create events while viewing your mail to make the process smoother and error-free.

According to Mailbird CEO, Andrea Loubier, “The Mailbird Unified Calendar is a game changer in that firstly, it’s built into your email client with Mailbird. No more toggling between different apps, where you may have one for emails and another for calendars. Secondly, it unifies all your calendars into one place, much like how we have unified contacts, folders, and inboxes. Everything in one place. All your calendars in one smart App.”

The new Mailbird Unified Calendar feature includes:

  • Adding new calendars
  • Importing of existing calendars from any provider
  • Managing events and invitations
  • Different types of events: one-time, recurring, all-day, etc.
  • Notifications
  • Sidebar view

The feature is already available for all Mailbird’s users in the latest app version.

This update aligns with Mailbird’s vision to provide regular new feature releases that are highly appreciated by its users. In April, Mailbird announced a 12-week sprint for new features, wherein, besides the Unified Calendar, other updates like Advanced Search and Moving Emails Between Accounts were released, and more features are expected until the middle of June.
