National Reading Movement

Read@Work

Launched in late 2016, Read@Work aims to seed a reading culture at the workplace. To date, we have 36 organisations on board. We offer a suite of services designed to encourage more working adults to read and the services are as follows:
  • A monthly Read@Work EDM to get staff in the mood for reading
  • Free reading-related programmes such as a Corporate Storytelling workshop (covering how to use storytelling techniques for persuasive communication at your workplace) and a Raising Readers talk (offering tips on how to raise children who become lifelong readers)
