The Stepping Stone Placement Scheme in Action
One of our key activities is the Morris Stepping Stone Project which seeks to help individuals who, through no fault of their own, need a helping hand to get into work, or get back to work. We were heartened and encouraged by the way so many staff engaged with this activity, nominating worthy entrants for the scheme.
After careful deliberation the CSR Action Group this year awarded our first two placements to Jacob Flavel and Lloyd Carswell. Jacob, who was nominated by a colleague in our Accounts Department, was keen to get back on the path to work following an accident. With his bright and positive attitude, our job was to create a role for Jacob which would genuinely play to his skills and help him develop in confidence. Today Jacob is working in property maintenance and who better than Garry Evans to act as his mentor and take Jacob under his wing. The duo can be regularly seen across our numerous sites and businesses helping maintain all our equipment and premises in good working order.
Lloyd Carswell, nominated by one of our long standing Site Managers, is a Physics graduate with a talent for IT and data analysis and is visually impaired. With his intelligent approach and positivity, Lloyd is now based with the team on the third floor working with the guidance of Morris Care’s Rob Pinsent. Through data reading software, Lloyd is able to access all the information he needs to bring his skills and insight to the company’s variety of IT and data management activities.
