Nine members of the Staff Wellbeing Network at Argos-Sainsbury’s got their first taste of Worktree’s new ‘Wellbeing WorkOut At Work’ workshop.  This involved a carousel of one-to-one conversations on themes including:  sleep, social media, eating, loneliness, anger, exercise and kindness.

In post-session questionnaire evaluation:

  • 100% agreed and 82% strongly agreed ‘This session helped me to get to know my colleagues better’
  • 100% agreed and 63% strongly agreed ‘I now feel more open talking with colleagues about my wellbeing’
  • 100% agreed and 36% strongly agreed ‘The session has improved my sense of wellbeing’
  • 100% agreed and 73% strongly agreed ‘I think everyone in the company should do this’.

Participants commented that what they enjoyed best was:

  • Getting to know new people in the business and talking about topics I wouldn’t normally.
  • Meeting new people and building positive relationships.
  • an open, honest theme, good facilitation, easy conversations and no pressure.
  • No obligation to talk, being comfortable about what to say.
  • Getting to know my colleagues on a more personal level, I learnt about myself.
  • Understanding how to look after myself better and talk about things that I hadn’t thought about or spoken about before.
  • Talking openly with colleagues about personal topics that I would not usually talk about.
  • Great way to meet new colleagues and to look at ways and new ways to handle different situations.  It was a brilliant session.
