Tezlom, formerly known as 247 Professional Health, is a family-run business headed by Roz and Ryan Armitage, who decided to make the change following a life-changing year for the mother and son team.
As part of the company overhaul, Tezlom has invested over £31,000 and introduced a range of mindfulness coaching activities such as regular yoga classes and meditation sessions for its employees in an ongoing effort to encourage better mental health practises at work.
“247 Professional Health, as it was formerly known, was established in 2008 and has always been a close-knit, family business with myself, my mum Roz, my dad Les and brother Tom working together as company directors. In the last eight years, we’ve had a tough time since my Dad Les was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer in September 2011 and more recently, he developed Parkinson’s Disease. However, things have significantly changed for the family when in October 2018, we tragically lost my brother Tom to suicide. Soon after, Les began to receive care, which he continues to receive today, due to his conditioning worsening and developing into Parkinson’s Dementia. This left my Mum and I in a very dark place and with some big decisions to make at an already difficult time.” –Director of Tezlom, Ryan Armitage
Ryan and Roz made the choice to focus their efforts back into the business that the family had already given so much to and decided to rebrand their offering to represent the legacy left behind by Tom and Les, and from here, Tezlom was born. In line with its new-look branding, the recruitment agency’s motto is to find places for people that care across the healthcare sector.
Our clients are like family to us, and after working with the Armitages for four years prior, we knew how to tell their story in a personal, professional yet positive way to raise awareness for the causes that were close to their hearts.
As part of our campaign, we secured national coverage in the likes of the Metro, local coverage in Liverpool Echo and business press such as BoxHuman and Business Up North to name a few. We also accompanied a very nervous Ryan to the Radio City Tower, where he appeared live on air to tell his story to 22,000 listeners.
As part of our strategy, we also submitted an award submission on behalf of the company to The Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2020 for which they are currently shortlisted.
