On World Mental Health Day, global IT sales and digital recruitment company Finlay James is pleased to announce that their chosen company Charity of the Year 17/18 is the mental health charity, Mind.
The official fundraising for Finlay James’ Charity of the Year 16/17, Macmillan, will cease on Friday 13th October when Finlay James will be hosting their own Coffee Morning.
On the announcement, Sara Gaughan, Chief People Officer said:
“Approximately one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. Every employer depends on having healthy and productive employees and prioritising the mental health of our staff is at the core of our organisation. We are taking part in Mind's Workplace Wellbeing Index and encourage flexible working to achieve work-life balance, ensure all our employees take a lunch break and offer subsidised fitness classes during lunch break..
We are proud to be promoting positive mental health across our community; especially in the high-pressured sales and recruitment environments."
