CDS supports Leeds Wellbeing Week
As a national communications agency with its headquarters in Leeds, we are proud to support this year’s Leeds Wellbeing Week.
Leeds Wellbeing Week runs from 19-23 March and is now in its second year.
CDS’s wellbeing programme is a company supported initiative. It is led by staff representatives, designed to promote and support the health and wellbeing of each other and encourage a fun and engaging environment where people want to work.
Through the programme, we aim to:
- Raise awareness
- Educate and provide advice
- Promote positive health through national events, e.g. healthy eating week
- Support each other
- Encourage changes in behaviour
- Provide a care and empathetic culture
Initiatives as part of our wellbeing programme have included:
- Fruit delivered twice weekly
- Charity donation appeal for St George’s Crypt that raised £700
- Stress management workshop
- Chair massages
- Posture workshop
- Pedometer walking challenge
- Introduction to yoga
- Nutrition seminar
Mark Gair, Managing Director of CDS said: “As a people based business, we recognise that our employees are our biggest asset and we have a commitment to improve healthy living, address mental health and support our local community.”
About Leeds Wellbeing Week
Leeds Wellbeing Week is about bringing together the wellbeing and corporate worlds around a series of wellbeing events both in the corporate environment and in the public space.
According to a recent Financial Times and Vitality Study, UK companies lose 27 days per employee per year because of absence and presenteeism (employees being physically present but not involved).
There’s a bumper programme of events across the city, more information is available from https://www.leedswellbeingweek.co.uk/
