Mortgage Brain is proud to announce that it has recently become a signatory of the Mortgage Industry Mental Health Charter (MIMHC), demonstrating the firm’s ongoing dedication to supporting the mental health and overall well-being of its team.
“As a leading player in our industry, we acknowledge the responsibility we bear, not just to our clients, but also to our hardworking team. Signing the MIMHC is our commitment to fostering a supportive, healthy, and inclusive work environment,” says Pollyanna Puddephat, Head of Marketing at Mortgage Brain. She adds, “As an industry, it’s crucial that we acknowledge and address the struggles many individuals around us face – be it burnout, stress, or poor mental health. These challenges have profound implications, not only for the individuals experiencing them but also for the overall health of the mortgage industry.”
But Mortgage Brain believes that actions speak louder than words. In addition to joining MIMHC, the company is bringing back its popular Summer Fridays perk which encourages employees to wrap up their work week at lunchtime on Fridays throughout the months of July and August.
“By reinstating Summer Fridays, we want to create an opportunity for our staff to relax, recharge, and enjoy their summer weekends even more. Whether they choose a quiet garden snooze or adventures with friends and family, we hope this initiative will show our people that they are valued and their hard work is very much appreciated,” adds Pollyanna Puddephat. “By taking care of one another, we are, in essence, taking care of our businesses, because a supported and mentally healthy workforce is the foundation of a thriving and successful company.”
With the signing of the MIMHC and the return of Summer Fridays, Mortgage Brain continues to prioritise employee mental health and well-being, demonstrating its firm belief that a happy and healthy workforce leads to better service, productivity, and innovation in the ever-changing mortgage landscape.
