Summarise your role in less than 100 words

My main role is to carry out health surveillance on our mobile screening units – at our clients’ premises or in our offices at Park Valley. Prohms is also accredited by the British Society of Audiology to train students in this field, and I am qualified to carry this out – approximately four times a year, depending on demand.

What’s your favourite part of your job?

It has to be training others and engaging with our clients’ employees for health surveillance.

Which one word would your colleagues use to describe you?

Supportive.

Which word would you use to describe Prohms?

Dynamic.

Why do you think Prohms stands out from its competitors?

I feel that Prohms stands out from the crowd with its values. It’s a very progressive company, that’s headed up by a competent and inclusive director – with a highly motivated team who strive for equality, fairness and compassion. We’re also encouraged to keep up with personal and professional training – to benefit ourselves and the company – which helps us continue to offer our clients and potential customers a great service.

The phone rings and it’s your dream client… who would it be?

I think our dream client would be anyone who is proactive and progressive in providing high-quality wellbeing for their employees.

What are your hopes for Prohms in the coming year?

We live in uncertain times – with a possibility of political and economic unrest. I hope that our business continues to thrive and our client base keeps expanding.

What’s your one tip for businesses looking to improve their workplace wellbeing?

I’d urge companies to not just concentrate on the usual physical screening, but to encompass the complete package – including mental health wellbeing. This will help to remove the stigma, and encourage discussion.

What’s your idea of a perfect weekend?

Working on our allotment with my wife, and also spending some time with my wonderful grandson.

And if you didn’t work here, what would you do?

I couldn’t envisage not working for Prohms!
