With over 8,800 members globally, the Forum for In-House Recruitment Managers (FIRM) are the leading global membership organisation for talent acquisition professionals and provides tactical and strategic insight and support. Manchester Airports Group (MAG) owns and operates Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands Airports. It jets 59 million+ passengers to more than 250 destinations each year and as the largest UK owned airport operator, it contributes more than £7bn to the country’s economy, supporting more than 130,000 supply chain jobs. In October 2018, Morson International was reappointed by MAG to lead the recruitment of all interim staff across its three airports for a further three years after filling 750 vacancies over the last four years; including engineering, HR, procurement, digital and more. In order to remove inefficiencies and streamline the fragmented nature of the in-house recruitment process, Morson proposed the full-time deployment of experienced and appropriately skilled resource on MAG’s own site to ensure successful delivery, thus becoming a true extension of the business. The months and years that followed saw Morson embed in the new recruitment model, build relationships with hiring managers as well as refine and deliver consistent, quality service and streamline MAG’s tier 2 supply. Moving forwards, Morson have been tasked in delivering ongoing cost efficiencies, added value and strengthening the brand’s EVP. Testimonials from MAG praised Morson’s flexible, agile service delivery of a bespoke solution, as well as understanding the culture at the business while creating huge cost savings. Other testimonies highlighted Morson’s ability to work with MAG as they went through a number of operating and process changes, championing and supporting those changes.

CHARITY | 2 MIN READ Morson donates to Elsa's Journey The Cerebral Palsy fund helps to cover the costs of her various therapies and treatments For the ninth week of Morson's '50 Weeks of Giving' campaign, we've donated £250 to 'Elsa's Journey', a campaign running through children's charity Just4Children.Elsa is aged four from Warrington. She was born suddenly at 35 weeks after contracting Listeria Sepsis. After needing ventilation and a few weeks in NICU, she left hospital and returned to her family. As she grew, she failed to meet her milestones and at age 3, after an MRI scan, she was diagnosed with PVL (damage to the brain) which led to her having Cerebral Palsy. Shortly after her third birthday Elsa took her first independent steps. Now Elsa has turned four and started school. The family's next goals are to help her master climbing stairs, running, jumping and walking longer distances. To help her achieve this, a regular physio and activity plan is absolutely crucial. Morson are fundraising for Just4Children to help cover the costs of her various therapies and for equipment to allow us to carry out her physio programme at home. Our '50 Weeks of Giving' program will be in addition to the work to raise money for the employee-chosen charities in 2019 - Motor Neurone Disease Association and ABF The Soldier's Charity. So far in 2019 we've helped a variety of causes each week - from local facilities for the elderley to heart transplant clinics. In the last 10 years, we've raised over £2million for worthy causes throughout the UK such as the Seashell Trust, Destination Florida, Salford University, Alzheimer's Society and MIND. Further celebratory plans throughout the year will bring together Morson's sporting ambassadors; from the horse racing world, ex-Manchester United players, to former world champion boxers Ricky Hatton and Anthony Crolla, and Sale Sharks rugby club. You can donate to Elsa's page here. To find out more about our commitment to charity, click hereFind out more
MORSON SPORT | 4 MIN READ Robbie Davies Jr looks back on a breakout 2018 He gives us the lowdown on his next opponent in his upcoming European title fight Last year was a breakout year for Morson's Robbie Davies Jr after he signed a three year deal with Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing in June and began new life under his promotion by winnint the British and Commonwealth lightweight titles. Davies reflected on the night he defeated then-champion Glenn Foot in Newcastle back in October. “I was over the moon, it was a big achievement for me. It’s a goal for every professional boxer when they first turn pro to win the British title and to win the commonwealth title is a bonus” Davies’ most recent win has set up an enticing clash with Joe Hughes at the end of this month for the European Super-Lightweight title at the formerly known Echo Arena (now M&S Bank Arena). Fighting on a big show in his home city is something Robbie has wanted to do for a while and will serve as another box ticked: “I’ve been at those shows over the years but obviously I was with a different promoter at the time and to be co-main event at the Echo Arena and challenging for the European title is a big achievement in itself and to win this I can only go on to bigger and better things” With being a part of an event of this magnitude comes increased attention and more of a spotlight on Robbie in the build-up to March 30th, but this isn’t something that has distracted him so far: “I’m probably one of the best talkers when I get up there, during fight week you hear fighters saying they get nervous in the build-up but I don’t get butterflies until I get to the changing rooms before the fight” Prior to signing with Eddie Hearn, Davies Jr endured the toughest test of his life when he suffered major losses in and outside of the ring only days apart: “2017 was a dark time in my life, I lost my first fight and I lost my dad in the same week but since then I’ve grown and matured. I think my ring performances have got better as well and out of the ring I’m looking to be a role model, I think it was a big turning curve in my life for me” The Liverpool-born fighter later avenged his only defeat against Michal Syrowatka last March and he feels that coming through that experience has allowed him to take his abilities to another level: “I felt leading up to that loss that I’d scraped through my career because I was nowhere near training as hard or as dedicated as I had been since that. If I had never lost that fight I probably would have never changed anything and would have lost a bigger fight down the line” Next up for Robbie will be European Super Lightweight champion, Joe Hughes who has come through adversity his entire career and beat the odds on the big stage on multiple occasions: “Joe Hughes was born with Cerebral Palsy in his right arm which means the nerve damage was there from birth and he can barely use that arm at all. You can’t really look at it as a disadvantage because he’s been so used to that his whole career and has dealt with every type of fighter you can think of. He’s good in his ways but I just feel even with two arms he wouldn’t beat me” A win over Hughes won’t only be huge for Davis’ career in terms of adding more gold to his collection, but it will continue his rise up the boxing pyramid and may see him knocking on the door of a possible world title opportunity “Now I’m with Matchroom, everyone’s trying to take the limelight so everyone’s willing to try and fight me and take what I’ve got. Now moving forward, if I win this European title in good fashion it can only put me in the bigger picture for a world title shot later in the year” Robbie has shown the heart of a champion and continues to grow and impress with each performance. We at Morson wish Robbie the best of luck in camp and will be showing our support on March 30th. Read more Morson boxing news hereFind out more
MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS | 5 MIN READ Morson Group is committed to maintaining mental health conversations through a number of ongoing engagement activities that support our entire workforce, including our contractors out on site Learn more about our mental health awareness and support initiatives Download our mental health awareness whitepaper Mental health is now a permanent part of the workplace, with figures from the Department of Health stating that one in four of us will experience mental illness at some point in our lives. Within our own business, we’ve seen a rise in the number of staff coming forward to express their own struggles around mental illness and seek support. In response, we are working hard to strengthen our workplace initiatives and priorities towards mental health to encourage more of our workforce to speak out, improve attitudes and break down barriers. Earlier this year, we conducted a survey with more than 1,400 Morson International contractors, including those working in roles within the rail industry, which painted a stark picture of the current state of mental health. Whilst significant progress is being made to increase conversations about mental wellbeing within the workplace, more still needs to be done. Employers within the rail industry take great strides to protect our workforces from physical harm and this same effort towards keeping our people safe must include promoting positive mental wellbeing. Taking care of employee mental health is not only the right thing to do as an employer, but makes good business sense. A large majority of the working days lost each year are because of issues concerning mental illness, at a cost of £billions to UK employers. Mental health doesn’t discriminate, yet men are far less likely to seek support for a mental health problem, which is particularly prevalent in the rail sector. Suicide is a leading cause of death in young people aged 20-34 in the UK Three times as many men die as a result of suicide compared to women and it is the leading cause of death for men under 50 We are committed to maintaining mental health conversations through a number of ongoing engagement activities that support our entire workforce, including our contractors out on site: The Morson Vital Safety Units continue touring UK sites and engaging in proactive conversations around health and safety. Helping to facilitate and focus communications, the team behind the Safety Units are having increasing discussions around emotional health and wellbeing to deliver a holistic approach. They focus on contractors working in environments more susceptible to health and safety related issues, such as anti-social working patterns and high-risk activities, with the majority of our Safety Unit talks taking place directly with our rail workforce. Mental health and wellbeing forms part of our quarterly briefs with all our rail supervisors to ensure we are doing everything possible to break down barriers, so that our workforce feel comfortable and that we create environments where everyone can thrive. We are as much committed to health as we are to safety and are readdressing any previous imbalance in health and safety activities in industries where safety was previously seen as a larger priority. Using the results of our survey, together with the findings from Sale Sharks Community Trust’s own mental health awareness programme, ‘Balls to That’, which a number of our senior team have completed, we have developed a larger whitepaper focused on tackling mental health and creating happier, healthier and more productive workforces.
