Suffolk ProHelp – Why we offered our services
Suffolk ProHelp provides professional support and expertise to the voluntary sector and have been doing so since 2001. They have almost 40 member firms and MAD-HR are delighted to be one of those who have joined in offering local voluntary and community groups professional HR Services on a pro-bono basis. As providers of premier outsourced HR services we offer a comprehensive HR solution to fit the needs of the VCSE sector, whether it be HR retainer services, ad-hoc HR support, HR training and coaching or our online HR Toolkit.
Why we got involved with Suffolk Pro Help?
In the spirit of Making A Difference, we recognised that our company is in a fortunate position, particularly at this difficult time. To be able to help organisations in the charitable and community sector who are working with finite budgets and need to use their funds to focus supporting key activities for their beneficiaries is very important to us as a business. Both Carole and Charlotte, who also serve as Trustees for Suffolk Family Carers and ActivLives respectively, are delighted to be able to provide HR services to organisations that support our community.
Last year MAD-HR chose to support St Elizabeth Hospice and ActivLives at the Suffolk Chamber of Commerce’s Prestige Dinner – encouraging other local businesses to join in on their fund-raising effort. We hope that through our own network we can encourage more companies to support Suffolk Pro Help.
More recently Carole became involved with the Firewalk100 for Suffolk Mind, walking over coals to raise over £1,000.00 for them. MAD-HR regularly supports initiatives run by the IOD and Chamber of Commerce amongst others and other members of the team do get involved with their own local community. As well as our charitable endeavours, MAD-HR always seeks to support local businesses, using its own suppliers as well as running events that also benefit the local community.
Our advice to voluntary organisations needing professional support?
Having the right staff in place is the key to your success. This is where we come in; at MAD-HR, we have the HR expertise to guide you on successfully recruiting and retaining your staff and all the important work in between.
Why we recommend businesses join Suffolk Pro Help?
Voluntary organisations need help more than ever, as UK businesses enter unchartered waters due to the current pandemic. If you are able to pay it forward so to speak then we would encourage like minded businesses to do the same by extending a helping hand to those most in need within the charitable and community sector by coming on board at Suffolk Pro Help.
