Men’s Health Week – 10th - 16th June
With several harrowing statistics shared throughout the week, our team decided to do something to better the mental, physical and social wellbeing of the whole headquarter workforce. Our HR team hired a smoothie maker that used pedal power to blend fruits and vegetables into smoothies!
Mental Health Awareness Week - 13th May – 29th May
Throughout the week, our amazing HR team organised and hosted several activities to get people talking about Mental Health and help break the stigma through open conversation.
The week kicked off with an Introduction to Meditation activity lead by one of our senior employees. We learnt breathing techniques you could do at your desk or in private to help control the mind and reduce stress.
There were daily Health Walk and Talks to get fresh air and a change of scenery with a further Tea and Talk Hour in our communal area where our Mental Health Champions were on-hand for a talk with other colleagues where needed – providing private spaces if necessary.
Red Nose Day - 15th March 2019
This year, Boston hosted its largest Red Nose Day fundraiser to date! All HQ employees wore at least one piece of red clothing, participated in a bake sale AND joined in a company-wide quiz to raise money for Comic Relief!
This isn't the first time we’ve hosted #RedNoseDay at HQ, here’s an image from 2017!
International Women's Day – 8th March 2019
For International Women’s Day, Boston employees joined each other in communal areas for tea, coffee and a talk on why they support #InternationalWomensDay.
Some of our favourite quotes are below!
“I support International Women’s Day because....”
"....I love my wife and daughter, and want them to feel they can do anything!" - Dan
"...women do 2/3 of the work but only get a third of the pay." - Luke
"...I was raised by my mum and my sister xx" - Jordan
"...I am surrounded by strong women." - Nitin
Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) – 5th March 2019
Boston celebrated Pancake Day with the visit of a crepe truck! There were toppings for both sweet and savoury lovers, with additions such as Nutella, Belgian Chocolate, Apple Sauce, Cinnamon and Sugar. We tallied the amount our employees were able to eat in an hour and finished with 122! See more from our day below.
