Our team at Ardent have many years’ experience working for businesses of varying sizes, with vastly different cultures. In coming together to build Ardent our aim was to create a business that enabled all team members to have a balanced approach to their work and home life.
It is important to us that we build an environment in which people feel they can be their authentic self, in an environment they look forward to working in, and where they feel supported both in and outside the office.
As well as educating ourselves through training in areas of DE&I we have explored mindfulness as part of a holistic approach to saying healthy and happy in our day to day lives. To further develop our understanding of mindfulness and how it can bring peace into everyday tasks, and our work, we had an enjoyable session with James Scholfield of A Mindful Earth. James is a mindfulness/awareness teacher with a background in recruitment. The team talked openly about the challenges they face in their work and gained some understanding of how to unveil the peace that is always within us.
When we are not working, we enjoy many team get togethers outside the office, often including mini Ardent family members.
