MCN – the Middle East Communications Network as a group is participating in the global initiative of marking October as Breast Cancer Awareness month. To support the cause, MCN has changed its logo to incorporate the Pink Ribbon – the widely recognised global symbol of Breast Cancer Awareness. To drive further awareness both internally and externally, MCN has updated all of its brand collateral including its website, intranet and all social media pages.
With employee wellbeing front of mind, MCN is encouraging all staff to get checked, with special promotions for check-ups across multiple health service provider networks, organized by the Mercer Marsh health coverage network. In addition to health checks MCN is also offering education via a dedicated intranet page, which highlights the risk factors involved in breast cancer, and recommends examinations, consultations, mammograms and ultrasounds for all staff – all offered at specially discounted rates for MCN staff.
“At MCN, we are committed to supporting this important cause to drive awareness and encourage participation from staff, both regionally and globally. Early detection and awareness can save so many lives, which is why we’re dedicated to offering numerous programmes to suit all employee needs, and support a happy and healthy working environment.” said Ghassan Harfouche, Group CEO at MCN.
The awareness initiative is driven by the Talent and Human Resources division at MCN, and will run through the month of October.
Ricarda Ruecker, Chief Talent Officer at MCN said “We are passionate and feel it an important obligation to care for our employees and their wellbeing. This October, the Breast Cancer Awareness initiative is important to us, but it is just one of several activations that we do within MCN to support a healthy lifestyle. We make a big effort to offer our staff opportunities for medical checkups during health fairs at MCN and encourage every employee to be aware and consciously stay healthy”.
