It is OK not to be OK25th August 2020 / Posted by Carol Quamina
We all need to prioritise looking after our own health and wellbeing first so that we are then able to look after loved ones, friends and colleagues.
CRP’s accountable body, Westminster City Council, recognises the value of ensuring that the emotional wellbeing of staff is of utmost importance and have implemented departmental Wellbeing Pioneers as part of the commitment to the Healthy Workplace Charter. The Wellbeing Pioneers are a group of staff who are passionate about health and wellbeing. They are from all areas and levels across the council and champion health and wellbeing in their business areas, helping to plan initiatives, support and deliver activities and signpost colleagues.
The Pioneers have developed dedicated pages on the Council’s intranet providing staff with a wealth of tips, information and support, along with information on Five Ways to Wellbeing. Some of the activities undertaken virtually to date have included bingo, yoga sessions, mindfulness, knitting and craft sessions and staff choir.
