HR and Recruitment
Preston recruitment agency Spencer Clarke Group has launched a new initiative, The Wellness Project, designed to support the emotional, physical and mental wellbeing of professionals and their agency workers.
The Wellness Project consists of expert advice and tool kits to support professionals in all areas of their wellbeing; the help will be available on the Wellness Hub on the Spencer Clarke Group website and through a monthly wellness newsletter.
The project also consists of Wellness Wednesdays whereby life and career guidance will be available on the Spencer Clarke Group social channels.
Professionals will also have the chance to enter regular competition draws to win wellness goodies. This will include wellness journals & books, skincare bundles, relaxation candles and healthy snacks. The goodies will be the perfect accompaniment to help workers recharge their batteries after a long day at work.
The project has been launched in response to the ongoing health and wellbeing crisis which seems to be getting progressively worse. Experts fear the next pandemic which we face will be a mental health one; the charity Mind found that 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England.
With UK inflation rising and energy, house and food prices soaring, the cost of living is putting a squeeze on household finances and living standards. This financial strain, on top of the stresses of juggling a career with relationships, families and friends will likely exacerbate the situation.
The Wellness Project aims to provide constructive advice and coping mechanisms to prevent professionals from feeling overwhelmed which will negatively impact their wellbeing.
“Within Spencer Clarke Group, we have ‘11 Points of Culture’ which are the fundamental elements of what make us who we are. One of those points is being ‘different’ which means we go above and beyond expectations, ”said managing director, Mike Shorrock.
Shorrock continued: “The Wellness Project is just one of the ways we challenge the status quo. We thoroughly believe that happy and healthy employees are great for business so we’re committed to facilitating that. ”
