This shows the impact honest sharing can make.

Supporting Pride this Month and Always

Supporting Pride this Month and Always

🌈HAPPY PRIDE MONTH🌈

Last year, during Pride Month, we interviewed Vicky Milne, one of our Client Relationship Managers, who is proudly part of the LGBTQ+ community, to gain insight into her personal experience.

The article she wrote was relevant then and continues to be relevant now. She offers a unique insight into her experiences, shedding light on the process of her self-discovery and acceptance within her family, social circle and work life.

We proudly support Vicky and all of our colleagues, this month and always. If this is relatable for you, you can read the full article here.

Are You As Excited As We Are For The Euros?

Are You As Excited As We Are For The Euros?

We’re kicking off the fun here at Stafforce!

We like to mix work with play here at Stafforce, and with the Euros starting this week, we’ve got a month full of excitement lined up.

Our teams will take part in activities including, sweepstakes and football-themed games with lots of prizes to win. Plus, we’ll be looking for the best-themed office, best-dressed, and top fantasy football managers. There will be something for everyone to enjoy, even if they aren’t a football fan.

Our teams will track the matches with our branded 2024 Euros Wall Planners. If you swing by any of our offices this month, you might see some awesome football decor and smell some delicious delicacies, as all of our teams are celebrating the different countries by cooking up their home foods.

We’d love to know how you’re celebrating the Euros this year!

How Stafforce Gives Back Through Volunteering

How Stafforce Gives Back Through Volunteering

Last week marked the 40th anniversary of National Volunteers’ Week. Here at Stafforce, our mission is to enable people to be their best; giving back to our local communities is our duty, and that is why we provide our employees with volunteer days. This allows our teams to take time out of work to support local charities and community projects. 

Here are a few examples from our colleagues of ways in which they give back through volunteering.

Nikki Heath, our Branch Network Operations Manager, became friends with a candidate whilst helping him find employment. The friendship blossomed over time, and she actually became his best man. Sadly, he was diagnosed with stomach cancer and spent his last few days in the care of St Andrew’s Hospice. Due to their exceptional care, Nikki continues to support the hospice by volunteering one Saturday a month to help run the reception.

Mick Carr, our Trainer, has been volunteering with Search and Rescue Lincolnshire as a Trustee, Responder and Training Lead for a year and a half. The primary role of the group is to assist the Police in searching for high-risk and vulnerable missing persons. Mick and the team’s most notable achievement was helping to evacuate an elderly lady, 6 cats and 5 dogs from her flooded property and delivering them to a place of safety.

Claire Faulkner, Business Manager and Maisie Waters, Recruitment Consultant from our South Yorkshire Hub took the opportunity to visit their local animal shelter, Rain Rescue. The shelter aims to support animals in crisis all around the local area.

The team wanted to offer their time to support in whatever way they could. In return, these lovely cats and kittens showed their appreciation with one-on-one time including lots of cuddles.

As we know pets can have a positive impact on our mental health, scientifically proving to reduce anxiety. This was proven as Claire and Maisie said they left the shelter feeling refreshed, recharged, and raring to get back to work.

Why not consider visiting a local charity in your area, or finding a community project you can support?
