Mansfield Building Society donated £1,250 to a local primary school to ensure disadvantaged pupils could have a happy Christmas. The money was used to provide 50 care packages for parents whose livelihoods have been affected by Covid-19, with boxes including all the ingredients for a Christmas dinner and a Christmas Eve bag for children.

The Nottinghamshire independent building society founded in 1870 remains true to its founding principles of looking after its members and supporting the local community through its charitable trust, community support scheme and work in the community programme. Last year it also donated £5,344 to Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, more than half of which was raised by staff through fundraising activities during the pandemic.

As well as serving local savings and mortgage customers, The Mansfield also lends across England and Wales and provides savings for people throughout the UK. In spite of two world wars, global financial crises, and a pandemic, the modern mutual continues to thrive and evolve, recently introducing video consultations.

It's not just what you do but how you do it, that is important at Mansfield Building Society where the friendly, supportive culture is driven by its key values: People First, Integrity, Positive and Productive and Forward Thinking. Good communication, practical and emotional support, training and social events have kept staff engaged and motivated during the pandemic. The head office and branches closed for two extra days over the festive season in recognition of employees' hard work and dedication.

Quote from the top...
“We are delighted to have achieved a 2 star accreditation from Best Companies, in our first year of entering the process. The result is a credit to everyone at the Society for the way in which they have supported each other and our members, through a very difficult year for us all. The efforts made by our colleagues to keep everyone engaged whilst working remotely has been both humbling and uplifting and supports our vision of being “a great place to work”. The support that we had put in place for our colleagues around their mental health and wellbeing helped us to react in a positive way to the pandemic and the many challenges that it has brought. I am extremely proud to lead such a great team and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of them for their hard work and support!
