At Popcorn we pride ourselves on nurturing and developing our team, promoting an office culture that empowers our team members to realise their own potential. Believing in powering our people first, Popcorn training extends beyond traditional industry skills, investing in programmes such as our recent first aid training.
Learning invaluable life-saving techniques from CPR and AED usage through to how to save someone from choking and dressing and treating wounds, the grounding, informative and engaging session saw the whole team trained in first aid, gaining skills that could help the lives of those both in and outside of the workplace.
Leaving the whole team equipped and empowered with a wealth of knowledge and confidence, which, whilst we hope to never have to use, really could save someone’s life, the Popstar’s feedback highlighted the importance of the six-hour intensive course.
“I feel so much more confident after the training – it was fantastic.”
“Not only did I leave the training feeling reassured that I’d know what to do should I ever find myself in a situation where someone needed my help, I also left it feeling closer to my team too, nothing bonds you like learning to save a life!”
“The first aid training was probably some of the most invaluable training I will ever get. I’m so grateful I was given the opportunity to learn such important skills. Knowing I could help save a life is an amazing and empowering feeling.”
“The hands-on practical session was invaluable in helping us to learn and understand first aid, and I feel incredibly lucky to have had the chance to learn the basics. It was also a brilliant opportunity to work together as a team, using these new skills in different practical scenarios.”
“You spend 90% of your time with your colleagues, so it’s good to know you can save their lives if you need to.”
“I have always wanted to be first aid trained so I am delighted Popcorn gave me a chance to do it. If an emergency were to happen, I now feel confident that I would know what to do!”
