Adam Kuznesof completes the Great North Run for Mind

Director Adam Kuznesof has completed the Great North Run, successfully raising £608.71 for Mind. 

'It was a fantastic experience,' says Adam. 'It was great to overcome a challenge like the Great North Run, and it was made all the better knowing I raised money for Mind. It's a cause that is very close to my heart, and I'm pleased that I've been able to contribute, even just a little, to the work that they're doing for people in the North East and the rest of the UK.'

Mind is a mental health charity, offering information and support to hundreds of thousands of people across the UK. There are currently 135 local Minds across the UK, offering confidential help for mental health, information on mental health and the law, as well as counselling, therapy and professional training. Mind also campaigns on a wide variety of issues affecting those with mental health problems, such as health services, employment and legal rights.

'At Transcendit, we recognise the importance of good mental health,' says Adam. 'Employers have to be proactive. Nearly a third of UK employees have received a formal diagnosis for a mental health issue. Mental health problems affect a huge percentage of your team and your colleagues, and it needs to be taken seriously.'

Adam says that there has been a great deal of emphasis placed on the cost of mental health problems to employers, but that's not what businesses should be focusing on, 'Of course it's important from a business perspective, but it's way more important from a moral perspective. We need to look out for each other, and charities like Mind are doing excellent work within our community - raising money, awareness and making a difference for those affected by mental health issues.'

'And it's happening to people you know; every year, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem. Mental health issues are affecting our close family, our friends and our colleagues, even if we aren't talking about it. We have to start this dialogue, because that goes some way in removing the stigma around mental health, and getting those struggling the help that they need.'

'We've also made the decision to fund some team training in mental health. St John's Ambulance offer businesses an Adult Mental Health First Aid one day course. This is a great way organisations can help employees recognise the signs of deteriorating mental health, as well as how to help create a mentally healthy workplace.' 

If you want to donate to Mind through Adam's JustGiving page, you can do so here. If you want to get involved with the charity, they're often looking for volunteers to help run their services. Check out their vacancies page here. You can find out more about St John's courses on their website.

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for a refurbished computer, cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.

Excellent service, as ever, and very prompt. It's very reassuring to know the support is there. Sharon Langridge, Langridge Employement Law
