Internally in Ibec, we're also participating in National Workplace Wellbeing Day. On Friday 1 May, we'll be running:
  • Morning mindfulness
  • 30 minute meditation
  • The socially distanced lunchtime mile (staff will go for a walk in their locality and send us a snap of themselves / the scenery)
  • A nutrition webinar
  • A Children's Art Competition
  • A video on Pilates exercises to help counteract the impact of sitting at a desk all day
  • Virtual painting evening

Looking for some inspiration?

We've pulled together some ideas to inspire you as you plan for National Workplace Wellbeing Day. We're all learning to work in new ways, and this new approach will be reflected in wellbeing activities now and into the future! The most important element during these times is staying connected to and communicating with your people.

These activity ideas will get you started, but you can also take a look at the list of companies that have signed up to see what they have planned. Check out their entries on the sign-up page.

Whatever activity you choose to do, remember to tweet your activity and share it by tagging #WorkWell20 and @WellbeingdayIrl

Ideas for National Workplace Wellbeing Day activities 2020:

A lot of what you would have done previously for National Workplace Wellbeing Day can still be done virtually, using the many collaboration and sharing apps and platforms that are freely available. We’re presenting some ideas here to help you activate the day and break the sense of isolation your staff may be feeling and to help them with their fitness and healthy eating:

• Online meditation and mindfulness practice
• Online guided fitness sessions
• Virtual connect sessions including team lunches, water cooler or coffee break moments
• Online briefings and live Q&A sessions with wellbeing practitioners
• Internal competitions (baking, healthiest dish, share your workstation, fitness-related. etc.)
• Online access to medical, counselling and nutrition advice
• Lunchtime 2K - encourage your staff to share a photo of their safe social distancing walk at lunch, and share a collage with us on twitter by using #WorkWell20

Most popular apps for keeping your staff connected:

• Zoom App (free on iPhone, iPad, Android) or www.zoom.us for a laptop
• Microsoft Teams
• Google Hangouts
• Skype / Skype for business
• Slack.com
