Revealed - Liverpool is again 1 of the friendliest Cities in the UK

DO you feel it's important to have good relationships at work? Well, according to the latest research from CV Library, the UK's leading independent job board, 65.5% of professionals in Liverpool state that they have genuine friends in the workplace. The study, which surveyed over 2,000 UK professionals, also identifies the Cities where professionals are most likely to have friends at work, and finds that Liverpool is 1 of the friendliest Cities to work in. Other Cities in the top 10 include:-

1 Belfast - 90.9%   6 Cambridge - 69.2%
2 Cardiff - 73.3%   7 Leeds - 68.6%
3 Lincoln - 72.7%   8 Newcastle - 66.7%
4 Birmingham - 72.6%   9 Liverpool - 65.5%
5 Brighton - 69.6%   10 Glasgow - 62.2%

Lee Biggins, CEO and founder of CV Library commented:- "With Valentine's Day just around the corner, love is truly in the air for workers in Liverpool. And this is a positive update. After all, we spend the majority of our time at work, so not having any genuine friends can feel very isolating. While it's tough to push yourself out of your comfort zone and have conversations with your colleagues, it's a great way to build positive relationships; and your confidence will grow with it!"

Interestingly, the study also reveals that 64.3% of Liverpool's professionals feel it's important to be liked in the workplace. Additionally, the research finds that 43.3% of professionals worry about disappointing their manager and a further 48.3% fret about letting their team down.

Biggins continues:- "It's a fact of life that you're not going to be liked by everyone at work. However, you shouldn't let this get you down. Try not to worry too much about it; focus on being yourself and doing a good job. Everybody makes mistakes, but it's important to use them as learning opportunities. Always ask for feedback as it's a great way to show proactiveness, maturity and a willingness to succeed! Plus, it could help you form strong working relationships."

Friends of the Earth to host Q&A on Port of Liverpool's future and the climate crisis

FRIENDS of the Earth is hosting a Q&A on the future of the Port of Liverpool in the face of the climate crisis. Speakers at the event, which is taking place at Crosby Lakeside Activity Centre on the evening, on Monday, 17 February 2020, will include:- local MP, Bill Esterson, CEO of Friends of the Earth, Craig Bennett and Cllr Paulettte Lappin, Cabinet Member for Sefton Council. Representatives of Peel Ports, Highways England, the Government's Department for Transport, and Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram have also been invited.

CEO of Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland, Craig Bennett has been an outspoken opponent of the Government's A5036 Port of Liverpool Access Scheme, which would see a dual carriageway built along the length of Rimrose Valley Country Park. He has previously spoken about the need to protect green space from such developments, even going so far as to call for the Government to scrap its road building agency, Highways England, as no longer fit for purpose.

Speaking ahead of the event, Estelle Worthington, Friends of the Earth's North West Campaigns Coordinator said:- "The City Region has committed to reaching zero carbon emissions by 2040. The recent expansion of the Port of Liverpool and its plans for even further growth raise important questions about the City Region's response to the climate crisis and the need to protect the health and wellbeing of local communities. We want this debate to be open and inclusive, and to be an opportunity for all of the key stakeholders to have their say on solutions to the sustainable movement of freight from the Port into the future."

This is a free event, but space is limited, so everyone with an interest in this issue is urged to go online, register and to submit their questions in advance. Details can be found online.
