Gala on the Farm: Sponsor spotlight on MAD-HR
We are always grateful for the support we receive, and a number of businesses have generously supported our first Gala on the Farm that’s taking place at Jimmy’s farm this summer! Here, we’re shining a spotlight on MAD-HR to find out more about the company and its passion for mental health.
MAD-HR is an award-winning HR Support & Consultancy firm with offices in Ipswich, Chelmsford and Norwich, which recognises the importance of mental wellbeing. As a company that works closely with people across all ages and stages in their professional life, they see first-hand how critical good mental health is.
Not only do they recognise it with their clients, but they also ensure mental health is a priority within their business. Mental health is openly discussed with their team, which has adopted a healthy attitude to the topic. Recognising there is always room for improvement, they regularly come together to explore new ways to make their environment even more supportive. And it’s not just the team which benefits – they also work to create more supportive environments for their loved ones and communities.
MAD-HR is proactive in its approach to mental health support, having completed our Emotional Needs Survey and The Mental Health Toolkit: The Essentials course, which has helped their team go beyond their previous Mental Health First Aid training.
They understand life isn’t all about work, so have developed a flexible working environment to allow the team to meet both their work and personal commitments. So, they’ve got more opportunities to see friends or go for walks, helping to meet their needs for Community, Movement and more. Self-care is celebrated and encouraged at MAD-HR – their “oxygen mask on” approach ensures the team take care of themselves, which in turn helps them look after others. As well as support within their own team, MAD-HR also works with a Business Psychologist and Coach, who helps build and maintain confidence, resilience, and the team’s wellbeing.
MAD-HR’s ethos aligns with Suffolk Mind, so it was an easy decision for them to support Gala on the Farm in July! Supporting charitable causes is at the core of MAD-HR and its team members, and we’re incredibly grateful at Suffolk Mind to have them on board.
