Hoist extends relationship with local mental health charity PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 04 May 2016
Hoist Finance UK, the leading debt restructuring partner, is continuing to build its relationship with Mind in Salford by inviting the charity to work closely with the firm over the next 12 months in helping it not only to identify mental health issues with customers, but also the challenge of mental health among its own staff.  

Mind in Salford is providing Hoist Finance and Robinson Way managers with awareness courses to ensure that they are better informed around mental health and the help available to those who may be affected. It is also delivering a series of wellbeing and workplace stress sessions at lunchtimes to support employees’ physical and mental health, with the key emphasis on the latter.

Markus Greenwood, Chief Executive of Mind in Salford, says the mental health issues impact people in different ways: “One in six people suffer from workplace mental health issues, typically stress related, and bringing awareness to this is an important part of our work,” he explains.

HR Director at Hoist Finance, Alison Dingwall, says that the company has an excellent relationship with the local charity: “Mental Health issues can range from mild anxiety to acute schizophrenia, and Mind has been a key partner in pushing mental health higher up on the HR agenda. It has been especially supportive in helping us to understand how it impacts our customers and our own staff.”

The training and awareness sessions will be rolled out to staff in Hoist Finance’s Milton Keynes office later in the year.
