Morson has launched their 50th anniversary celebrations by pledging to donate to 50 different worthy causes throughout the year.
The Salford-based recruitment and design giant celebrates half a century in business in 2019 and has embarked on a programme of events to honour this landmark, with charity and community at the heart.
Morson plans for every office worldwide across the Group to take part in the charity activity, with each branch nominating a charity in that region to support.
Morson are embarking to help the local community as part of their ’50 Weeks of Giving’ programme throughout the year by providing donations each week to help schools, homeless shelters, elderly care homes, animal welfare shelters and many other institutions in the Manchester area, beginning in January. The company aims to give £500,000 throughout the year.
All of this 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. The Group hope to have their best ever year of fundraising, surpassing the record of £160,000 raised in 2016.
Morson Group was formed by Gerry Mason, the late father of the current CEO Ged Mason, in the family home in Salford in 1969. It has since grown to become the third largest technical recruitment company in the world and the UK’s leading aerospace and rail recruiter, turning over more than £900million.
Since formation, the head office of the company has never moved more than two miles away from its original location. The business now occupies state-of-the-art premises on Centenary Way on the bank of the Manchester Ship Canal, and this relationship with the local area is something that Morson is keen to celebrate throughout the year. CEO Ged Mason said: “Manchester has always been a fantastic place to conduct business. From our first office at our family home, to our current corporate headquarters, we have enjoyed working within the diverse and exciting business culture Manchester provides and we are proud of our roots.”
