Over the past year we’ve been trialling different ways to support staff and maintain the all-important balance of work and play to create a healthy, happy work place.
As well as regular fruit deliveries we have upgraded our kitchen areas to create a better space for staff at lunchtimes and introduced several initiatives including:
- A series of lunchtimes sessions on different aspects of mindfulness
- Opportunities to access stress relieving head massages
- Health and fitness tests
Based on staff feedback and after a trial period earlier in the year, we now host three exercise classes a week during lunchtimes including core, fit club and HIIT.
As a firm we encourage people to take part in physical challenges which, over the years, have included several sponsored bike rides and charity walks.
Add an element of competition in and BPE steps up to the challenge, evidenced by a rather competitive static bike challenge in reception with staff from BPE and neighbouring businesses competing over five days for the furthest distance cycled in a ten minute slot!
We all come to BPE to work but a healthy, happy team is key. Click here to find out more…
