Syngenta highlights superintendents’ mental health


While World Mental Health Day is a key moment to highlight the importance of a good work-life balance, Syngenta is supporting superintendents 365 days a year.

At the Golf Industry Show in Orlando in February 2020, Syngenta’s Global Head of Professional Solutions, Mike Parkin, addressed the issue of superintendent mental health in a keynote speech to the industry – and highlighted the moving story of one course manager for whom the stress of the job became overwhelming.

He said: “This is a remarkable industry, driven by passionate, professional people. None more so than superintendents.

“To the outside world, it might look like an ordinary job. But what I see are extraordinary people doing extraordinary work."
