It can sometimes feel like each day has a 'theme', or a National Day for something. Some of these are well known and respected around the world and others are a bit more...obscure. Get a Different Name day is one of the more obscure ones, but for us this year, it couldn't be more important.
The idea behind Get A Different Name Day is simple; If you are one of those people who don’t like their birth name, you can use Get a Different Name day as an opportunity to change your name. It doesn't need to be legally changed (of course you can if you wish) but you can inform those you know and care that you wish to be known differently. This may be down to a number of reasons; some don't like their name or it doesnt suit them while others may be transitioning to a different gender and use this as a milestone day.
So why is it important for JPA? Well, we are continuing our ethos of continually evolving by finally laying to rest our old identity of JPA Furniture, and now being JPA Workspaces. This is another step forward as we continually expand and grow and this now encapsulates much more of the offering that we provide.
JPA began in 1974 as John Pulsford Associates becoming known more colloquially as JPA Furniture so we are no strangers to changing our name. This next step allows us the freedom to continue our work and create and deliver inspiring workspaces with our continued ethos on sustainability, low carbon and zero landfill.
You will see changes to our website www.jpa-workspaces.com, social media channels (@jpaworkspaces) and our offline marketing collateral as we continue this process and we're delighted to share it with you.
