World Wildlife Fund to hold staff wellbeing activity week

The World Wildlife Fund is running a wellbeing activity week for its 340 UK staff to help improve motivation.

The organisation’s first wellbeing week, held last January, achieved 84% take-up, but it aims to improve on that this time with a host of new activities.

Its activities will begin on 15 January, with staff able to take part in reflexology, tai chi, Indian head massage, karate lessons, and workshops run on subjects such as stress management and dieting by provider Glo Wellbeing

There will also be outdoor activities, including a nature trail and bike ride.

All WWF staff will also receive a free goodie bag and wellbeing treats, such as herbal tea bags, throughout the week. Most of the activities will take place at the organisation’s Godalming head office.

A schedule of events was given to WWF employees in December, inviting them to book their desired sessions. Posters were also put up around the office and emails were sent out to all employees.

Lorna Rait, HR adviser, said: “It is important to WWF that our staff know we care about their health and wellbeing. Hopefully, the week will prompt positive lifestyle changes and keep staff motivated.”
