What’s happening at WRS
April 1st – April 30th - Stress Awareness Month
At WRS, we put people first – in more ways than one. With April recognised as Stress Awareness Month, we’ve doubled down on how best we can support the team. And we circulated a survey on employee well-being in the workplace to get it right.
Our team has also received daily tips to improve their mental, emotional, and physical health. Here are just some of the tips we’ve shared with the WRS team:
The 4-7-8 breathing technique: Breathe in for four seconds, hold it for seven, and breathe out for eight.
Practise positive affirmations to promote self-esteem and reduce negative self-talk.
Go through your social media feeds and delete any accounts that don’t inspire or excite you.
April 13th - Easter bake-off
To celebrate the Easter weekend and raise money for our chosen charities, the WRS UK team held a bake-off. Team members either brought in their own baked goods to sell or purchased some of the tasty creations.
From banana bread and chocolate orange cheesecake to cookies and pavlova, there was plenty to go around. The money raised has gone towards Samaritans, an incredibly worthwhile UK charity in need of vital donations.
April 25th – Wind Europe
Our team headed to the spiritual home of wind, Copenhagen, for its Annual WindEurope Event. We had a great time connecting and building lasting partnerships with new and existing clients and candidates at WindEurope's Annual Event.
