Supporting Wellbeing in the Workplace!
April 8th was Ireland’s second National Workplace Wellbeing Day. Giraffe Childcare were proud to participate in this initiative to help improve employee health through promoting better nutrition and physical activity. Our teams came up with creative fitness activities and focused on wellbeing throughout the day.
Healthy Eating Initiatives
On Friday morning, all of our Giraffe centres received fresh fruit baskets for the staff to enjoy on their breaks. Here are some of our centre staff enjoying their healthy morning snacks!
Many of our centres organised Fitness activities for the children to enjoy, both indoors and outside. Some of the planned activities included Early morning stretching, Yoga, jogging, team sports and obstacle courses. They look like they all really enjoyed doing these fun and energetic exercises.
The Lunchtime Mile
As part of the many planned activities to support National workplace Wellbeing Day, some Giraffe centres took part in the Lunchtime Mile. This was an initiative to encourage everyone to get out on their Lunch break and walk, jog, run, cycle or swim up to a mile!
Cycle To Work Scheme
At Giraffe we are proud to support the “Cycle to Work Scheme” and encourage our team members to sign up to this great incentive. Here are some enthusiastic cyclists who peddle to work everyday!
Well done to all Giraffe team members who took park in National Workplace Wellbeing Day. Keep up the healthy habits!
