Empowering Financial Well-being: Tarem Services Teams Up with Pocket Power!

We are excited to share Tarem Services is embarking on a new pilot project in collaboration with Pocket Power to enhance the financial well-being of our staff. This initiative aligns with our mission to tackle in-work poverty and improve employees’ quality of life.

About the Pilot Project

We are piloting this with a select group, helping them save money on their household bills and access discounts and grants they never knew existed. Pocket Power’s services include:

Bills health check: Making sure people are on the right tariffs and not overpaying on their household bills, including energy, water, broadband and mobile phones.
Switching: Helping people switch to better deals, including to social tariffs when relevant which can reduce water and broadband bills by over 50%
Unclaimed Benefits: Helping people access some of the £23 billion in unclaimed benefits and discounts in the UK.

Why This Matters

This collaboration strengthens our commitment to fighting in-work poverty and achieving financial security for our employees. By partnering with Pocket Power, we provide practical financial solutions and reinforce our dedication to their well-being.

We can’t wait to share the positive impact of this initiative and what we learn to improve the users’ experience!

Enrique’s Journey: Growth Through Tarem Services and Wates Partnership

At Tarem Services, we measure our success by the growth of our team. Enrique’s story exemplifies our belief in nurturing potential to foster personal and professional development.

Enrique’s Path to Empowerment
Facing unexpected health challenges, Enrique was compelled to reassess his priorities and career path, prompting him to seek a role that prioritised his well-being and future prospects. In 2020 he joined Tarem Services as a Welfare Cleaning Operative at Wates, Cambridgeshire where he found more than just a job; he found a community committed to supporting his growth. His dedication and hard work led to an opportunity to enhance his skills through the NPORS Plant Machinery Marshal course, paid by our client, Wates. This achievement marked a significant milestone in Enrique’s journey with us.

A New Role and a Sense of Ownership
Recently completing the course was a transformative moment for Enrique. With new skills in hand, he expanded his role to become a Welfare Cleaning Operative and Traffic Marshall. But the true significance of Enrique’s story lies in his sense of ownership within the company. As a co-owner, Enrique is not just an employee but a vital part of our mission. This sense of belonging and pride is what sets our team members’ experiences apart, reinforcing our belief that success is a shared journey.

We also extend our heartfelt thanks to Wates for their support and investment in our team members like Enrique.

Be Part of Our Mission
Enrique’s story is a testament to the opportunities and sense of community we offer at Tarem Services. Inspired by his journey? Join us in our mission to deliver impactful services while nurturing an environment of growth, ownership, and social responsibility.

Making a Difference this Christmas!

As a response to the cost of living crisis, Tarem/CBRE and St Stephen Parish donated 100 Christmas essential bags to White City residents at Our Lady of Fatima Church Food Project this week. Some of Tarem employees teamed up with other volunteers at the project to help and distribute the essential bags.

A heartfelt quote from one of White City residents resonates deeply: “It may not seem like a lot but to someone like me that doesn’t have any money to put towards Christmas this year. These items in the bag helps to keep me going and gives me spare change to be able to get bread or milk I may need over Christmas and the New Year. It’s also given me the money to get the bus to go and see my family on Boxing Day.”
