Morson shortlisted for Corporate Social Responsibility award
The Northern Automotive Alliance provides a variety of services within the automotive industry
Morson is proud to have been shortlisted for the CSR Award in the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) Awards 2019.
Founded in 2004 with support from regional government funding and based in the North West, the NAA is an independent company which provides a membership service combined with a project management delivery function within the automotive community.
The North West is notable for containing four global vehicle manufacturers: Leyland, Jaguar Land Rover, Bentley and Vauxhall.
Our dedicated ex-forces recruitment arm, Morson Forces, has been shortlisted for the award.
Morson Forces is our dedicated community initiative to support and create long standing opportunities for forces service leavers, reservists and spouses across a range of roles and industries. Built upon strong morals and a keen sense of social responsibility, Morson has been supporting the British military for more than 20 years. By formalising our offering into Morson Forces we have been able to elevate activity and focus on securing skilled employment for ex-forces personnel and supporting the transition into civilian life.
The Morson Forces team comprises of several ex-military personnel that possess a combined 70+ years’ forces experience, who are perfectly placed to help service leavers find secure employment. As well as employment, we support all aspects of military to civilian transition – helping to secure housing, support with mental health and heavily subsidised training courses - creating a huge network of ex-forces personnel who we support throughout their lives.
Morson recently hosted an NAA event at head office. Centered around mental health in the workplace, the event bought together Morson’s sporting partner Sale Sharks and their Balls to That initiative hosted by Afghanistan vateran and deaf rugby star Craig Monaghan. Spearheaded by Morson's health, wellbeing and engagement partner Heather Deering, the event bought together a host of partners from the NAA to discuss tips and strategies for mental health and larger wellbeing within the workplace.
