Mindfulness Matters at the Heart of Tezlom Company Rebrand

A healthcare recruitment agency has rebranded in a bid to make the workplace a better place.

Tezlom, formerly known as 247 Professional Health, is a family-run business headed by Roz and Ryan Armitage, who decided to make the change following a life-changing year for the mother and son team.

As part of the company overhaul, Tezlom has invested over £31,000 and introduced a range of mindfulness coaching activities such as regular yoga classes and meditation sessions for its employees in an ongoing effort to encourage better mental health practises at work.

Director of Tezlom Ryan Armitage said: “247 Professional Health, as it was formerly known, was established in 2008 and has always been a close-knit, family business with myself, my mum Roz, my dad Les and brother Tom working together as company directors.

“In the last eight years, we’ve had a tough time since my Dad Les was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer in September 2011 and more recently, he developed Parkinson’s Disease. However, in the last twelve months, things have significantly changed for the family when in October 2018, we tragically lost my brother Tom to suicide. Soon after, Les began to receive care, which he continues to receive today, due to his conditioning worsening and developing into Parkinson’s Dementia. This left my Mum and I in a very dark place and with some big decisions to make at an already difficult time.”

Ryan and Roz made the choice to focus their efforts back into the business that the family had already given so much to and decided to rebrand their offering to represent the legacy left behind by Tom and Les, and from here, Tezlom was born. In line with its new-look branding, the recruitment agency’s motto is to find places for people that care across the healthcare sector.

Ryan added: “The events of 2018 were truly devastating for our family. At the time, all we wanted to do was run and hide from it all but we knew we had to make good from a devastating period to honour the work already put in by Les and Tom. I looked very closely at our business and what it meant to us and our employees and realised it was our family values that set us apart from others in the industry so decided to work on these pillars to begin our rebrand into Tezlom.

“Through these testing times, I’ve learned first-hand just how important mental health maintenance is and so I want to equip our team members to better understand the importance of looking after both themselves and those around them, and hopefully inspire other business leaders to do the same. With that in mind, I began to implement various schemes and strategies into the working week to give our staff the opportunity to take some time out, relieve stress and hopefully feel happier all around – it’s our ‘start small’ contribution to hopefully make the world that bit of a better place.”

With its head office located in Southport and franchises throughout the UK, Tezlom supplies Care Assistants, Qualified Nurses and Support Workers to clients including care homes and hospitals to name a few.
