Omnicom Experiential Group agency, TRO, is making its workforce well-being a priority with the launch of a new initiative in collaboration with POINT3 Wellbeing.
Entitled ‘Wellbeing Wednesday,’ the new weekly event offers employees (along with the local SW London business community) a range of POINT3 workouts, which have been scientifically designed to reduce stress through a combination of movement and mindfulness. Ideal for those on busy schedules, the 45 minute 2-in-1 workouts combine both exercise (either HIIT, Stretching or Running) along with a relaxing mindfulness session. Once a month, POINT3 will also host a talk focused around a different wellbeing theme.
The ‘Thriving at Work’ Report commissioned by the government at the end of 2017 states that 300,000 workers are leaving their jobs every year on account of a mental health related issue. What’s more, it’s thought that 85% of adults are experiencing stress regularly, highlighting the role and responsibility that companies have to managing the mental, as well as physical and emotional health of their employees.
POINT3 was set up by Nicky Morgan, Sarah Mayo and Siôn Stansfield, who first met while working at TRO. They have re-trained as mind and body coaches and are using their corporate experience to now provide total wellbeing experiences that motivate, educate and energise people to be happier, healthier, and more productive.
Amelia Shepherd, Managing Director, TRO commented: “Quite simply, we wouldn’t be anywhere without our people, so we are completely committed to maintaining a holistic approach to nurturing our brilliant workforce. It’s absolutely crucial that mental health is held in the same regard as physical health, and so it was natural to partner with POINT3 to deliver this weekly event for our team.”
Nicky Morgan, Co-founder of POINT3 Wellbeing added: “It feels fitting to partner with TRO on this new Wellbeing Wednesday event, given the POINT3 founders all met here. And having worked at the agency for over 15 years myself, I am delighted to build on this long-standing relationship. Wellbeing Wednesday will be happening every week come rain or shine – firmly putting mind + body health and fitness on the Richmond agenda.”
