THE Courtyard is hosting its first ever Wellbeing Week for staff and stewards this week.

Operations manager Phil Pearcy has organised an extensive schedule of activities for staff to drop into over the five days.

"There is compelling and growing evidence that arts and culture can help us keep well, improve our health outcomes and live longer, higher quality lives." Said Phil Pearcy, "The week will ensure that staff are able to participate in arts activities and a wider wellbeing programme to help alleviate stress, anxiety and/or depression and promote wellness in the workplace."

The week will begin with a free cooked breakfast for all staff to enjoy, provide by The Courtyard's own Café Bar team.

Throughout the week staff will be able to attend a variety of 20 minute sessions including colour yoga, singing, sound bath, escape room, dance and a host of fun, team building exercises.

There will also be communal spaces for staff to get away from their desks to enjoy lunch and tea/coffee breaks whilst engaging with colleagues over a chat and a board game.

15.4 million working days were lost to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2017/2018 in the UK (Labour Force Survey) and The Courtyard's Wellbeing Week aims to help alleviate work-related stress and dissatisfaction.
