As this year’s Mental Health Week gets underway there’s an important question to ask – is your workplace making your employees thrive or just survive?
We are taking part in the ‘On Your Feet Britain Challenge’ which is being held on Friday 26th of April here at Claremont. The focus of the nation-wide campaign is to encourage employees to team up to see how much sitting time can be reduced throughout the day.
As mindfulness and wellbeing grow in importance for people-centric employers, so too does the appeal of biophilic design in the workplace. Biophilic design refers to the concept of increasing our connection to the natural environment within the spaces we occupy, something that is all too often lacking in our work as well as home environments and in many towns and cities across the UK.
Change is the new world order. It requires a new set of behaviours, traits and attributes of businesses, those that lead them and the people they employ. The organisations that thrive in the face of adversity will be those that had one eye on the future all along. They will have laid the right foundations, recognised the importance of their people and invested in a workforce with the skills, outlook and resilience they need to succeed. It is time to ask, are your people ready for change?

With unreliable trains and increasing congestion on the roads, not to mention the time spent traveling to work each week, commuting in the UK is a costly endeavor for employees. But have you considered what it is costing business too?
