How to embrace the sporting summer in the workplace

According to research from CV-Library, more than six out of 10 UK workers think businesses should show support for big sporting events.

That support will be put to the test this summer with the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Wimbledon, The Open Championship and the Tour de France all taking place across June and July.
