A week-long event is being held at Greene King’s head office in Westgate Street, Bury St Edmunds, as well as its depots in the town, to give employees the opportunity to improve their wellbeing.
This is the second year the company has run the week, which is designed to promote health awareness at work and at home, and includes workshops, challenges, health promotion activities, webinars, fresh fruit and advice from a variety of wellness experts.
Andrew Bush, group HR director at Greene King, said: “We want to create an environment where our employees can achieve their full potential and, to do this, we need to be aware of and care for our teams’ wellbeing and mental health. We are a big employer locally and we have a responsibility to care for those who work for us and we believe our people will benefit from the week.
“From mental health awareness workshops to promotion of healthy eating and sleeping, there is an array of events for our teams to tap into. The ‘Know you Numbers’ mini health check is always popular, where our employees can have their blood cholesterol, blood glucose, blood pressure and body mass checked.”
To build competition among teams, there will be an office-wide pedometer challenge where each function has to clock up the most steps during the week with the top team winning a prize.
