During Wellness Week 2018, we focused on the issues that matter most to our people – easy access to medical supports, mental health, nutrition and fitness.
The week began with a talk by My Nutrition.ie on healthy eating choices, and this was followed by a fun and interactive cooking demonstration showing staff how to create quick and healthy meals at home.
Our next talk focused on how healthy lifestyle choices can help build emotional resilience. Staff were given practical tips, including breathing techniques, to help them manage stress and busy workloads.
Our external Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) provider came into the office to talk about the various ways its counselling services and supports can be accessed.
Employee health screening also formed part of the week’s activities, as did talks on financial well-being and money management.
ROD’s Managing Director, Harry Meighan, was delighted with the positive response to the week:
Our ambition is to create and sustain a culture that attracts and keeps good people. We are committed to offering broad and innovative benefits to ensure our team remains fit and healthy and can manage stress and other anxiety, both within and outside their working environment.
