Industrial Trading Solutions Ltd embraced our ‘HAPPINESS’ core value for Mental Health Awareness week, to help break down some of the barriers surrounding emotional, psychological, and social well-being.
We pride ourselves on a great culture and family values at ITS, and want to ensure that all employees are Happy and Healthy, so this week we all took part in activities that encouraged staff to speak about their wellbeing and take time out for themselves.
We set up a ‘Room of Tranquillity’ for relaxation and reflection, a ‘Let’s Talk’ session where we all opened up about how stress manifests in us individually, and ideas to tackle these issues. We also provided fresh fruit to nurture our bodies as well as our minds, and added a little of what we love (Cheesecake and chocolate played a big part in that!).
Staff took part in a day for ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ and agreed we should continue this as a permanent activity going forward, and to top it all off, ITS gave all staff a ‘Bad Day Bonus’ – an extra half day holiday that can be used on that day where you arrive and work and just don’t feel it! Plus we announced the benefit of the Bupa initiative for wellbeing was now available to all staff for emotional and practical support via their 24 hour helpline.
It’s ok not to be ok, but it sure helps to have somebody to talk to when you are not in a good place.
