Who are the M.A.D team?
M.A.D (Making A Difference) team
The M.A.D team was set up at Joslin Rhodes to help improve the working life of the employees. Since its formation, it has played a role in many of the changes to improve the Joslin Rhodes working environment📈. Some of the changes that have been seen through the M.A.D team include raising just under £500 for the charity Mind, social events, and improving the general working life in the office.
The M.A.D team’s introduction
The M.A.D team was introduced to improve the working life of Joslin Rhodes as well as improve the client’s life. This team has given the employees a way of making their voices heard🗣️. The introduction of the M.A.D team has allowed employees to be able to push for change in certain matters.
Who is involved in the M.A.D team?
The M.A.D team has a member from each of the teams🙋, to act as a representative. This allows for all the employees’ opinions to be put forward. Before a meeting, the one nominee from the team will receive feedback and suggestions from their team and bring it up to the M.A.D team.
The MAD teams’ part in Move for Mind
The MIND team set out to raise money for a charity that the company collectively was passionate about. The Joslin Rhodes team were all passionate about fundraising to support Mind’s campaign to help build a society that fights for positive mental health of every last one of us.
We set ourselves the goal of reaching 20 million steps in 59 days🏃♀️. The fundraising campaign finished with the team reaching 21,901,059 steps and £465 raised.
The MAD team helped the team to reach this goal by pushing their teams to go the extra mile. Whether that was to go on a joint group walk on their break or to go for a run.
Team nights out
The MAD team has also had a part in organising team nights out. The most recent Joslin Rhodes night out was a bowling night🎳. This was an event organised to bring the team to Hollywood Bowl at Teesside Park. It was a great opportunity for the team to spend some quality time with each other outside of work. It became quite clear that some of our team weren’t exactly talented at bowling😂.
The Queen’s Jubilee
Recently the MAD team has had a part in setting up a party for the Queen’s Jubilee👑. This event involved having a sit-down lunch with the team. The MAD team put up decorations and organised for food to be brought in.
Each team was tasked with bringing in either savoury🥧 or sweet food🍰. With everyone contributing we ended up with a great lunch prepared for us all; there was cakes, sausage rolls, sandwiches, a wide variation of drinks and more😋.
Without Lasting Power of Attorney your partner and dependents could be faced with problems such as:
- Not being able to access any money held in accounts, savings, or pensions in your name
- Not being able to access any joint bank accounts they hold with you
- Not being able to give instructions to utility companies where you are the account holder
- Not being able to sell any property you own jointly, even where the intention is for your benefit, such as assisted living
- Perhaps the most unpleasant surprise for people who find themselves in this situation is that assets you hold jointly also become frozen. This includes joint bank accounts and jointly owned property.
This can often cause undue financial hardship and distress at a time when they’re trying to cope with a life changing event.
