This month we hosted out first ‘Take a Break on Us’ initiative, encouraging colleagues to take time out of their busy days and enjoy a hot beverage and treat on Designer Group!
Our UK offices and sites all took part on 19th May, and some of our Irish sites were visited by a special barista vehicle last week.
This new initiative is part of our wellbeing programme, led by our DG Holistic Committee and strategy. Micro-breaks, lunchtime breaks and longer breaks have all been proven to have a positive relationship with wellbeing and productivity. Studies have shown that taking regular breaks can reduce or prevent stress, help to maintain performance throughout the day and reduce the need for a long recovery at the end of the day.
We hope that those who attended our events were able to enjoy their break, make the most spending time with their colleagues and felt refreshed upon their return to work.
We look forward to hosting more events soon!
