A Bar Hill company is demonstrating its commitment to promoting a healthy lifestyle for its employees with the launch of a new Wellness Programme.
Domino Printing has introduced a range of initiatives focussing on Mind and Body, including workshops on Creating Wellness, Managing Stress and Mindfulness.
Postureworx Sports Massage is on offer two days each month with the aim of reducing muscular tension, discomfort and pain, to help with posture issues and to reduce stress.
The company has also set up a programme to train a cohort of Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAs) to promote good mental health in the workplace and also support employees generally across all areas of life.
To date, 15 MHFAs have undergone a two-day intensive training course run by the mental health charity Cambridgeshire, Peterborough & South Lincolnshire Mind. The MHFAs will provide confidential, one-to-one support and advice to employees and raise awareness of other sources of help available to them.
Other services on offer to employees include free flu jab clinics for which more than 70 people have signed up. There are also discounted gym memberships and easy access to local yoga and pilates classes.
Sharon Budworth, Head of HR, UK & EMEA said: “Since we launched the Wellness Programme, we have received really positive feedback on the different activities which employees feel are so relevant for today’s lifestyles.
“Our workshops on Creating Wellness and Managing Stress and Monthly Mindfulness in the Workplace cover topics such as solution-focussed thinking, time management, personal impact and self-awareness. All of these have been fully booked, with employees benefitting from making some time for themselves, creating space in their day and recharging their batteries.
“Taking care of health and wellbeing is known to have a positive impact on happiness, engagement, recruitment, retention and productivity but essentially it is ‘doing the right thing’. Here at Domino, we want all our employees to feel valued, respected, healthy and happy – both at work and at home.”
