NISE takes the ice – teams with Dial (Barbados) Inc. for Challenor Centre
The successful completion of the Ice Bucket Challenge is the latest example of the strengthened community outreach focus from both the National Initiative for Service Excellence (NISE) Inc. and Dial (Barbados) Inc.
On Friday August 22, 2014, NISE CEO, Kim Tudor and Area Retail Manager of Dial (Barbados) Inc., Maria Higgins accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge in aid of the Challenor Creative Arts and Training Centre. The completion of the challenge is a continuation of the increased focus on upliftment and giving back to the community from both organisations.
Earlier this year, NISE launched the Upliftment Challenge as part of the 2014 edition of the NISE 100 Improvements in 100 Days initiative. The response by corporate Barbados and members of the public to the challenge was heartening with donations made to organisations such as the Barbados Vagrant and Homeless Society, the HIV/AIDS Food Bank, the Edna Nicholls School and the St. Philip District Hospital.
The momentum gained during the 100 Day Upliftment Challenge period has not been lost, with many organisations which were part of the NISE 100 Improvements Organisational Challenge creating structured upliftment programmes within their firms.
