Harnham launch their new wimbledon office | Harnham Recruitment post
Harnham, the world’s biggest Data and Analytics recruitment business has launched its new state of the art Wimbledon headquarters. David Farmer, Senior Partner of Harnham was joined by Ann Swain, CEO of APSCo to officially open the sales floor and bring in an exciting new chapter to Harnham’s story.”This is a very important day for Harnham. I’ve seen this organisation flourish over recent years and to see David and the team move into this fantastic space is befitting of their skill and dedication to both the recruitment and data industries,” said Ann.With capacity to grow headcount in the new Wimbledon office from 65 to 100, Harnham have set the foundations for significant growth across their UK and European markets. Outside of Europe Harnham have two established offices in San Francisco and New York. David comments that the Wimbledon office will act as the blueprint for future international expansion. “Harnham has seen positive year on year growth which has triggered our UK expansion and we expect to be at 130 staff globally by the end of the year, but this is just the start. We have just begun our growth strategy in our New York and San Francisco offices which will triple headcount in the US over the next two years”.
The fully renovated space was designed and built by local office build company ODB Group. The office combines cutting edge open plan design with integrated technology all set against an innovative and exciting brand that has been core to Harnham’s success. Learning & Development will remain key to Harnham’s growth strategy so two purpose-built training rooms have been constructed. The result is an environment that promotes Harnham’s culture of collaboration and support whilst using technology to aid productivity.Keeping their head office in Wimbledon will also help ensure Harnham retains its unique culture in a period of growth. Since the company opened in 2006, Harnham’s headquarters have been based in several offices all within a few hundred yards of Wimbledon Station. This has allowed the business to weave itself into the fabric of the town supporting local businesses and charities such as the Wimbledon Foodbank where every employee spent a day working over the festive period. October 2017 was a particular highlight as Harnham was awarded ‘Employer of the Year’ and ‘Best Enterprising Business’ at the Merton Business Awards.
How Tech and Data Can Help Mental Health
It’s Mental Health Awareness month and Data is upping its game to support mental health. There are mindfulness apps, sleep aids, even Electronic Health Records (EHR), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help bring ease to our minds and our bodies.
The last few years have been particularly gruelling. When you figure that around 40% of people don’t have access to help and the stigma surrounding mental issues, it’s good to discover there are options for those who need it developed within the technology sector. But like any technology which helps us run our businesses and our lives more efficiently, it comes down to accessibility and Data. The more you know, the better you can target mental health issues, patterns, and craft treatments.
AI Accessible Mental Health Technology
What if you could talk to someone without fear of judgement in a cost-effective option? Healthcare overall in the US may keep many from seeking treatment. But the development of AI tools such as chatbots offer both low-cost alternatives, confidentiality, allows information to be collected to shorten the time between diagnosis and treatment. Think Calm, Headspace, and similar mindfulness apps. Imagine if the years previously required could take just months, weeks, or days to having a better sense of wellbeing.
While AI won’t replace human therapists nor should it, the stigma is reduced, and information is received to help patients understand their condition, and to know when they need to speak to a human therapist. In addition, the chatbot and similar tools can give patients access to help between appointments as well. But chatbots and AI tools aren’t the only technologies helping people work toward positive mental health. The Internet of Things (IoT) has long been in play, and its apps have seen an increase in user downloads.
How IoT Helps Manage Mental Health
Exercise and sleep are two of the ways often suggested to benefit your mental health. Why? Because they’re stress relievers. But with all the distractions of today, the hybrid working flexibility, the greater competition to do more, and the day-to-day of keeping ahead of physical health, stressors are stacked high.
Fitness apps aren’t new, but in 2020, downloads spiked over forty-five percent worldwide. Health awareness apps complemented with regular exercise combined to alleviate loneliness and improve mental health.
Sleep disorders affect up to 70 million people in the U.S. The effects of ineffective or compromised sleep patterns affect every part of your health including emotional, physical, and mental health. But there are apps, tools, and wearable technologies from something as innocuous as a pillow or lightbulb to more advanced devices that monitor your nervous system. Check out this guide on the best sleep gadgets of 2022.
Mental Health and Company Culture
Businesses can do their part to make mental health a priority in their company culture. In every industry, including the tech industry, the constant state of flux and increased workloads, are driving the need to re-evaluate not only the physical health of your employees, but their mental health as well.
How? Empathy and trust are a good place to start, and with a safe space to share concerns. It’s important to not just give lip service to supporting the mental wellbeing of employees, but to actively support it.Imagine, if in those safe spaces, your employees had access to chatbots, surveys, or other apps which could offer help two-fold. Data can be collected which can give employers the information they may need to put systems in place to ensure the physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing of their employees which could lead to increased productivity and retention.
Everyone has been affected, in one way or another, by mental health issues or illnesses. But as Data Science ramps up its efforts utilizing AI-powered tools, Machine Learning, and perhaps even Computer Vision or Virtual and Augmented Reality to drive the conversation, then there’s no better time than now to start your journey.
