Enabling your staff to enjoy good mental and physical health is a must these days. Many employees are under pressure due to the cost of living crisis, caring for family members, worrying about world affairs, their job security, and the safety of their communities, and of course some are suffering from long-term covid.
Exercises to reduce work related anxiety are an essential piece of the armoury in optimising our wellbeing. Developing better breathing patterns has been proven to help with concentration levels. What’s more, combining correct breathing habits with meditation and more immediate calming techniques offer an effective means of relieving work-related stress and creating an environment in which your employees can thrive, wherever they are. Team building sessions in nature are becoming increasingly popular in supporting mental health and wellbeing objectives.
By offering your staff an opportunity to learn good breathing practice and calming techniques to enable them to be able to pause and reflect, you can start tapping into the benefits which many corporations have discovered that doing so can bring to their businesses – a more relaxed, reflective, curious, and creative workforce, lower levels of absenteeism and higher productivity.
Companies already investing in this amazing and most natural resource include Google, GlaxoSmithKline, the Home Office, the Cabinet Office, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Transport for London.
I previously spent my working life in companies large and small serving customers on the front line through to achieving marketing executive positions with large corporates such as Centrica, BT, Royal Bank of Scotland and Airmiles. Working
on my own to managing large teams in-house and remotely, I am perfectly poised to deliver wellness solutions from breathing to meditation to time spent in nature through to managing anxiety sessions to businesses of all sizes, as I have the credibility to work with your staff.
Sessions can be tailored to the needs of the business – for example, half hour sessions once a week at a regular time or a session added on to the beginning or end of team meetings. All delivered to wherever they are via zoom. Sessions can be taped and watched repeatedly. Individual sessions are also available to those members of staff who want to explore specific or a breadth of wellness solutions in more detail.
Dealing With Redundancy
If you must make employees redundant, I can offer outplacement support to help them with the anxiety and fear they may experience as they transition their careers. Ensuring a balanced perspective and giving them practical tools will help them create a more positive outlook. I can work with them to help them define and manifest their goals and desires.
Providing ex staff with a support package can have huge benefits for companies as the staff depart with as positive an experience of the company as possible, making them feel valued through what is a particularly stressful period. Packages can be tailored to individual company and employee needs.
