This week we have been celebrating our very first Wellbeing Week.

We launched our wellbeing strategy with a key aim to ‘work together to promote and make a difference to the health, wellbeing and happiness of everyone who works here.’

To us this means looking after the whole person and respecting the multitude of ways that people need to keep themselves well. We have identified  four pillars of wellbeing, Mental, Physical, Spiritual and Personal Growth. These will guide our activity and planning as we progress with our strategy.

Supporting this is our wellbeing platform, which includes key information and resources to help individuals and teams on all things wellbeing. Covering community connections, nourishment, approaches to sleep, family, personal and financial planning, staying well in the digital age, and mental health of all kinds.

Kickstarting the week with a jam-packed schedule of fun activities including talks, demos and try out sessions, our aim is to get us all thinking about our how we can better care for our wellbeing, both in and out of the workplace. We’ve also sent out a wellbeing bag to every member of staff with key information, useful resources as well as a few wellbeing treats!!

Some of the week’s activity highlights include breathing ourselves calm, learning about the 5 key ways to wellbeing, free swims for staff at the Jubilee pool, finding our inner Picasso in art sessions, relaxing yoga and uplifting cheerleading classes. In addition,  innovative approaches to mental health support and advice for better money management.

Angela Walker our Head of People said.

“It has been an amazing week, full of fun, insights and learning. We have created some fantastic opportunities and resources to support our colleagues and help them with every aspect of their health and wellbeing.  Hopefully, the week will help our colleagues to start thinking about what makes them happy, keeps them well and the little differences they can make to support and achieve their personal growth.”
