This year we’ve combined our two favourite things – our annual staff wellbeing and team building day with the national Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September.
Our annual wellbeing day has become a firm fixture in the Harris calendar, giving us all time to regroup and relax together as a team after the hectic summer holiday period and take time away from our computers, emails and social media updates for half a day. Though of course, we’re always on hand for any Friday afternoon emergencies. This year, we’re also raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support by hosting our own Coffee Morning to kick off the day.
We’ve had some new starters join the team in the last 12 months and with the majority of teams working on a hybrid basis, events like this are a great way to strengthen relationships across the whole Harris team – making sure we’re all working together seamlessly.
With this in mind we’ve also introduced the Harris Breakfast Club this year which brings everyone together in the office once a month to share some tasty breakfast treats and strictly non-work chat to start the day. It has very quickly become a monthly highlight.
The whole team also completes a wellbeing survey every year and we have three trained mental health first aiders to make sure that everyone is happy and fulfilled in their roles so that we can continue to be creative and support our clients through their own marketing activity. And following the launch of our Harris values earlier this year, supporting our colleagues both inside and outside of work is a piece of cake for us.
It’s just part of what makes us Harris.
