first_imgNewsCommunitySportCall for marathon runners to support GROWBy Staff Reporter – October 24, 2019 157 Green Ribbon Month aims to help end stigma and discrimination about mental health Karen seeks mental health support for cancer patients Linkedin Hand photo created by katemangostar – www.freepik.comAs athletes are putting in their final preparations for the Dublin City Marathon, one of Ireland’s leading mental health support groups, GROW, is calling on participants from Limerick City & County to consider raising funds for the charity.For those who have not yet selected a charity, GROW is asking that they consider contacting family, friends and colleagues and encouraging them to make a donation. As a result, not only will you enjoy the personal satisfaction of completing the marathon, but doing it in aid a charity will make it even more worthwhile as GROW meetings are held regularly throughout Limerick City & County.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It would be particularly fitting to support GROW as the charity is celebrating its 50th anniversary of providing support within the community to people dealing with all types of mental health challenges.Joan Diffley, Jacki Hehir & Michael Crowe called on athletes to lend support to GROW and help people recover from mental health issues.“The challenges that athletes face during training and the marathon itself are similar in many respects to the challenges faced by people who struggle on a daily basis with their mental well-being. GROW’s recovery programme prepares people to take small, but very significant and practical steps towards achieving their ultimate goal of personal recovery.“What is unique about GROW is that it is a community-based organisation that provides support and education around emotional and mental wellbeing through weekly free meetings. “These meetings provide mutual help, understanding and encouragement to those who are struggling with any aspect of mental health from depression to stress, anxiety, loneliness or isolation and to those experiencing financial and physical difficulties,” explained Joan Diffley, Jacki Hehir & Michael Crowe.International research on GROW’s group method shows that “over a period of time they need significantly less professional help and have less chance of relapse. They are significantly more likely to be in employment and will have wider support networks. They are also more likely to reduce, or dispense with, medication”.If you are interested in supporting GROW you can donate on, alternatively contact the charity on email at [email protected] or GROW Office, 33 Henry Street, Limerick, Tel: 061 318813 for sponsorship cards.

Call centre culture set to reign in the 21st century

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Call centre culture set to reign in the 21st centuryOn 5 Feb 2002 in Personnel Today The number of call centre employees in the UK will rocket from 500,000 to640,000 by 2005, according to a report by research company Datamonitor. The report claims that the call centre sector, which currently accounts for1.7 per cent of the UK’s workforce, will employ two per cent of the workingpopulation by 2005. The growth will see another 2,000 call centres join the 6,000 already in theUK. Datamonitor analyst James Adams said the expected rise will create arecruitment and retention challenge for call centre employers. Many call centres have a staff turnover of 100 per cent a year, and it isdifficult to recruit good people, especially as the centres get moresophisticated, he said. Adams said one of the main obstacles to recruitment and retention is thepoor image that has plagued call centre jobs. But he said this is becoming easier with improved conditions and money inthe sector. “There is less shouting and whip-cracking now, and wages areapproaching mean earnings.” The research indicated that increased competition in the sector should alsolead to improved conditions.
