The Heathrow team of Moore Kingston Smith recently celebrated three years in the Old Vinyl Factory and decided to host a special birthday event as a way of marking the occasion.
During the evening, Moore Kingston Smith Managing Partner, Maureen Penfold provided a short presentation outlining the firm’s efforts to promote improved employee wellbeing and remove the stigma surrounding mental health in the workplace. Maureen then took the opportunity to sign the MIND Time to Change Pledge.
Moore Kingston Smith takes wellbeing at work seriously. Underpinned by their charity partnership with the UK’s leading mental health charity – the firm is dedicated to improving mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
To raise awareness of mental health issues, each of the Moore Kingston Smith offices has been running staff activities based on the five tips for wellbeing: being mindful, learning, being active, giving and connecting. Staff have taken part in yoga classes, study-aid swaps, lunchtime walks, posting messages of thanks and social gatherings. The firm has also trained 16 Mental Health First Aiders across its network of offices.
Maureen commented, “I am delighted to be here tonight to sign the Time to Change Pledge. This is a great step in our firm’s journey supporting mental health – and a commitment to all our employees that we are working to change how we think and act about mental health at every level of our firm.”
The evening provided the perfect opportunity for the Heathrow Partners Maureen Penfold, Jonathan Seymour, Mahmood Ramji, and Vijay Tanna and team to network with clients, contacts and alumni over drinks and canapés.
