As the EMEA Recruitment team participated in a Miles for Smiles challenge to raise money for Operation Smile, we hosted a range of wellbeing activities to help them achieve their goal.
During October, EMEA Recruitment committed to virtually travelling 3,000km/1,900 miles to raise money for Operation Smile, the official partner of the EMEA Recruitment podcast. The route covers our key locations in the UK, Netherlands and Switzerland.
The team supported one another in hitting the group target, by organising running clubs, boxing classes and weekend walks. As everyone rallied together to log their miles, we felt it important to increase our focus on wellbeing during the challenge.
Throughout the month of October, we hosted a wide range of activities to encourage the team to prioritise their wellbeing and engage with colleagues after a difficult year.
We’re proud to boast a wealth of talent among our team – our Office Manager, Sarah James, taught a group how to crochet, Anna Moizio, our Senior Researcher, shared her native language, Italian, with us, and we showed off our culinary skills with a potluck lunch.
As well as our weekly yoga sessions, some groups visited a comedy club for an evening of laughs and we invited therapists into the office to conduct chair massages for the team.
To encourage our employees to look after themselves and their loved ones, we were joined by two fantastic charities, Oddballs and Coppafeel, to raise awareness of testicular cancer and breast cancer respectively.
We were also honoured to introduce Cornell Thomas, an international motivator who has been recommended by Tony Robbins, to the EMEA team. Cornell previously appeared on the EMEA Recruitment podcast, where he discussed overcoming fear and learning from failure.
Although October has come to an end, our focus on wellbeing will continue. We have received great feedback from our colleagues, who would like to see certain activities hosted on a regular basis.
We’re proud to provide a wide range of wellbeing activities for all EMEA Recruitment employees. You can find out more about what it’s like to work for us: https://www.emearecruitment.com/work-for-us
