Here at Swanstaff Recruitment, we held our 4th annual Wellbeing Week (or WOW Week as we like to call it). As always it was a week that was jam packed with laughter, fitness, relaxation, mental health awareness and healthy eating! It couldn’t have gone better, take a look for yourself… Day one We kick started the week with our infamous laughter day. What better way to start off Monday than with a pun competition centred around fruit! This was carried out over email so that the whole company could get involved. The winner received 2 free comedy tickets – after all, laughter is the best medicine. This day was aimed to fill Head Office and the branches with nothing but laughter! We also asked all team members to nominate who they think is the funniest person in Head Office and the branches. This was a great way for people to feel appreciated in Head Office and the branches. Day two Day two was fitness day. We challenged our Swans to see how long they could wall sit for (the winning time was 2 minutes 47 seconds) and we challenged our consultants to see how long they could squat for whilst holding a sales call. Throughout the day we sent out the top fitness apps, free online workouts and wellness classes. This encouraged our Swans to be more active, and it was also good team building as teams were cheering each other on during the challenges. Day three Relaxation day. This was arguably one of our favourite days throughout the company. We challenged our Swans to complete some mindful activities such as mindful breathing, listening, appreciation and moving. We also sent out mindful and relaxation apps that our teams could make use of. At Head Office, we kitted out our library room with calming music, put the fire on and laid out bean bags so that our Swans could relax on their breaks. Day four The fourth day of Wellbeing Week was focused around Mental Health. We used the day to reflect on our stress levels and what causes our stress levels to rise. We sent out a weekly wellbeing check-up guide for our Swans to use – it includes coping strategies and ways to drain their stress away! Day five On the last day of Wellbeing Week – we hosted a pot luck picnic. We asked every member of staff to bring in an item of picnic food. We had so much nice food and our Swans said how nice it was to all eat lunch together and do something different! We also sent out our top tips for healthy eating! Well, that’s a wrap for this year. Until 2020, Wellbeing Week. We can’t wait to see what we plan for next year!

Swanstaff Recruitment have donated over 400 warm, waterproof items to charities across the UK. These charities are: Love and Humanity Peterborough Sanctus Chelmsford AMAT Medway The Sanctuary Gravesend House of Mercy Gravesend Maidstone Homeless Outreach Medway Street Angels Help the Homeless Colchester at Christmas After the success of previous Christmas campaigns such as Swan Socks, Christmas Crates and Bundles of Joy, we are proud to have carried on the tradition of making a difference with donating coats and other warm items to the less fortunate this year. The items were donated by Swanstaff employees, our temporary workforce and members of our local communities who all came together to ensure that the homeless are warmer this winter. Homelessness is an increasing issue in the UK. According to Shelter (a housing charity) there are approximately 25,000 homeless living on the streets and at least 295,000 living in temporary accommodation. Approximately 1 in every 200 people in the UK are therefore classified as homeless and this number is still rising. So here at Swanstaff, we feel it’s our duty to make a difference throughout the year but especially around the Winter months. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who donated and helped us reach and exceed our target this year. Until next year…
