Community Update – 3rd July

Community Update

Hello, and a warm welcome back to our Community Update. We’ve done some amazing things since our last blog post, from beginning a month long campaign with innocent bubbles to delivering Munchy Seeds, Reon and Karma Cola to offices across the UK.

Innocent bubbles comes in three refreshing recipes – lemon & lime, apple & berry and orange & lime – with each under 100 calories with no added sugar, the lightly sparkling blend of pure fruit juice and spring water is the only bubbly way to help you get your 5-a-day.

We’re currently into the third week (yes, THIRD) of delivery, with one more left. If you’ve received some, grab your office code and head over to to leave your feedback. There’s no prizes on offer this time, but it does fill you with an enormous sense of well-being – which I’m sure we can all agree is much better.

This week we’re also partnering with a new brand, Yushoi.  A range of light and crispy, baked pea snacks. Bursting with flavour, these delicious snacks are also packed with protein and fibre. Containing less than 88 calories per a portion, they’re the perfect solution to guilt-free snacking.

And finally, we’re also working with innocent for another one of their fantastic products both this week and the next, their superbly pure coconut water. Deliciously fresh tasting and coming chilled in a 500ml carton, it’s the perfect way to stay hydrated naturally.

Other Titbits;

  • We’ll be revealing the winners from our most recent Karma Cola campaign on our Facebook page this week
  • If you received innocent bubbles last week, you’ve got until 5pm this Friday to leave your feedback
  • We’re currently undergoing a massive redesign of our website, so watch this space to see our new (and improved) interface with added features really soon

In a week where Theresa May chose to watch Bake Off instead of turning up to debate on the BBC, we continued working hard to bring you some amazing samples!

We’re finally able to announce we’ll be working with innocent to bring their fantastic bubbles drinks to offices across London every week from the 19th June to the 10th July. Available in three refreshing recipes – lemon & lime, apple & berry and orange & lime – and each under 100 calories with no added sugar, they’re the perfect way to drink something bubbly at your desk without getting fired.

We’ll be delivering them on the hottest day of each week (British summer permitting), so they’re at their refreshing best. With opt-ins going on as we speak, you’d be a fool not to register.

Last week we delivered innocent super juices to offices across London, and they’re going down an absolute storm (with some going out this Monday). Did you receive a batch? There’s no prizes for feedback, other than an enormous sense of well being – which is even better; so don’t delay.

This week we’re delivering Munchy Seeds, crammed with real goodies, like vitamins, protein and fibre and we’re excited to announce we’re bringing you the Honey Seeds variety. A delicious blend of honey roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds, great for healthy sweet snacking or ideal as a nutritious sprinkle over porridge, yogurts or smoothies – providing the perfect boost.

In other news, you’ve got until 5pm Tuesday to leave your feedback for NutriPot

After another long bank holiday weekend, it’s time for us to reflect on a week in which Tom Hardy apprehended a bike thief and Boris Johnson bemused the country (Mugwump anyone?)

We’ve been finalising the delivery schedule for our upcoming campaign with LINDOR bars, bringing the irresistible melting centre to offices across the South East – are you one of the lucky offices receiving some this week?

Be sure to leave your feedback, as there are several selections of LINDOR chocolates up-for-grabs and all you have to do is let us know what you thought to enter. Fancy another entry? Then send your snaps in via @LindorUK using #momentofbliss.

Our ambassador survey is now live and we’ve had some really useful feedback – both good and bad. It’s great to get to see what you like about the service, and what we could be doing better. We’ll be sending another email to those who haven’t yet filled it in, so we get as many responses as we can. Once the results are in we’ll be publishing them on our blog and letting you know what we’re doing to improve.

We’re still busy getting ready for our coolest ever campaign with our friends over at innocent and will be announcing it officially soon, so keep your eyes peeled on your inbox and watch this space.

We’ve been a little quiet on the blog front lately so this is the first of our weekly updates we’ll be posting going forward.

The last few months have been pretty crazy here at gemsatwork Towers; we’ve teamed up with some great brands and have delivered some really exciting products to members of the gemsatwork Community all over the country. This year has seen people sampling great products from Aveeno Lotion to Itsu Miso Soup; we’ve had a some amazing feedback on all these products so big thanks to all of those who took part and took the time let us know about their experiences.
