Why Commercial Managed IT are sponsoring our 12 Days of Care

Local businesses are making the difference of a lifetime to our patients and their families this Christmas

This winter, we put out a call for local businesses to sponsor the vital care that we provide over the festive season. We asked our business community to consider taking part in our 12 Days of Care by sponsoring a 12 or 24 hour period of care in the lead-up to Christmas. 22 amazing local businesses signed up to make the difference of a lifetime to local families facing terminal illness.

Here, Craig from Commercial Managed IT tells us why they answered the call to take part in our 12 Days of Care.

As Christmas approaches, we’re reminded of how tough this year has been, on so many fronts.

So many of us are missing our loved ones and it’s certainly been difficult not being able to simply put an arm around friends, family and colleagues to provide reassurance and comfort. The care sector demonstrates this acutely – people who long for contact at what is such a difficult time reminds us of the amazing work that Hospiscare and other charities provide to so many in need.

The world, as we remember it, has changed

Whilst the social impact may lessen over time with vaccines now in motion, how and where we work has likely changed forever.

We’re all tucked away in our home studies, dining rooms and kitchens, tapping away. In a positive way, we’ve been forced to adapt how we communicate, racing off to install ‘Zoom’ or ‘MS Teams’ to not only work from home but also keep in touch with those closest to us.

I’ve enjoyed the visible contact these tools have given us at short notice, even if through necessity. My car has done fewer miles with meetings now carried out remotely, yet equally effectively.  As such, the air outside seems cleaner, something close to all of our hearts.

A new way of working for us all

At Commercial Managed IT, we pride ourselves in ensuring that this new way of working is as comfortable, performant and resilient as it is in your normal workplace.  Our solutions ensure you can continue working, when and where you need to. Our highly skilled and friendly IT support team can, if only virtually, put an arm around your staff to ensure they feel less isolated and alone when that all important IT assistance is needed!

We help all of our clients across many sectors, including charity, to manage their IT environment and most importantly their staff IT experience. Corporate social responsibility and the environment are at the heart of everything we do and we firmly believe we can help our clients to emerge stronger – to truly build back better. Let me know if we can help, we like making new friends.

Happy Christmas and New Year, to you and yours.
