World Mental Health Week
This week we marked Mental Health Awareness week in the LDN office. Keeping in mind this year’s theme ‘Kindness‘ we invited employees to submit their art creations. You can check out their works of art here on the FTV gallery.
We ran bite-size yoga & relaxing meditation sessions, hosted an FTV session to learn more about the Employee Assistance Programme and invited employees to try out a new hobby with the Stitch and Bitch Club. Thanks to all who got involved and remember to keep an eye out for weekly HR mailouts for tips on managing your wellbeing and mental health in isolation.
