We are proud to announce that our employees have chosen Manchester Mind as our charity of the year. Manchester Mind is a fantastic local charity delivering a wide range of services to support people’s mental health. Last year they provided support, information and training to over 5,000 people.
Prioritising mental health is important to us as individuals, but it’s also good for business.

At IPEC our biggest asset is our people. We’ve decided that 2019 is a year for us to take action. Not only do we want to raise money for a great cause, but also take the time to evaluate ourselves as a business and take steps to address wellbeing in our workplace. Supporting our employees to be happy and healthy helps us to pull together as a team to deliver innovative solutions and a better service to our customers worldwide.
