Invitation to the Wellbeing at Work Forum
Our next Wellbeing at Work Forum will be held at the Manadon Sports Hub on the 28th November from 9:30-12:00.
As well as being a great opportunity to network and share ideas, the forum will include talks from John McKenna, Improving Lives Plymouth, about their Caring for Carers’ service, and from Gail Wilson, St Luke’s Hospice, around the Compassionate Cities. There will also be an update from Wellbeing at Work.
Calling all workplaces – Sign up to Stoptober
It’s a great time to look at improving the health of your workplace as October marks the start of a 28 day campaign aimed at getting the nation’s smokers to quit the habit.
Wellbeing at Work can provide staff with the amazing opportunity to quit in a group with colleagues. Weekly motivational meetings with a health improvement practitioner will support you through your journey.
If you are interested and have a minimum of 10 like minded colleagues please contact 01752 437177 or email the team.
Wellbeing Champions update
The University of Plymouth recently freed up time for 35 of their staff to train to become Wellbeing Champions, over 3 recent sessions. We are excited to hear the ideas and initiatives that our new Champions come up with to help improve their and their colleagues’ Wellbeing.
We are always looking to hear how you have been using your Wellbeing Champion training to help improve your and your colleagues’ wellbeing or to spread the word about improving workplace wellbeing with signposting and information.
If you have a story that you think would inspire others we’d love to hear from you.
Encouraging activity in your workplace
You might remember back in February we were supporting a scheme by Plymouth City Council offering your organisation the chance to loan Table Tennis tables and equipment to help workplace activity levels and also to add a bit of fun into the working day.
In the time since, 5 organisations have taken up the loan offer and have had a table set up in their office space. Congratulations to Livewell SW – Plymouth Options, Cigna Insurance, Mi-Space (Midas construction), Plymouth City Council – Midland House and Co-Op Warehouse Plympton for taking up the initiative. From this Plymouth City Council – Midland House went a step further and purchased a table to keep permanently for their staff.
If you would like more information or are interested in loaning a Table Tennis set for your organisation you can see the original article on our website.
