Prepare for four months of arctic weather with Quill

Posted: 18th October, 2018

Long-range weather forecasts predict freezing temperatures, heavy snow and icy storms beginning as early as November and continuing for four months.

For businesses this means one thing: protracted disruption as staff can't journey into the office. It's heartening to know there's an easy way to protect your organisation from weather-induced disaster: outsourcing. With Quill, choose to outsource your payroll and pension management. After all, can you fail to be tempted by 247, 365 cover in the run up to winter?

A team of 12 members of staff and a wider group of family and friends took part in the Salford Dragon Boat Race, held on 20th May at Salford Quays, an event chosen because Peter was a sailing enthusiast.
