We’re calling it: the first ever WSLHD Wellbeing Festival was a huge success.
Sell-out crowds fronted for many events – especially Zumba and laughter classes (one participant said his cheeks were still hurting from smiling a day later!).
Guest speakers Sue Langley and Dr Suzy Green gave inspiring talks about wellbeing and resilience, and there was plenty of interest in sessions about work-life effectiveness, dealing with diabetes during Ramadan, and how to get a better night’s sleep.
The Wellbeing Festival was born from last year’s People Matter survey. This year’s People Matter survey has just launched – have your say here. You never know what it might lead to!
This is what you said about the festival:
“I attended the laughing class at Westmead. Very funny! “
“Oh, this was so much fun. Thank you to WSLHD for Wellness Week.”
“Excellent. I hope this is a regular session!”
“OMG … awesome.”
“I just love it!”
“I would be happy to do this every day.”
“ I would come in early for my shift to do this.”
“I didn’t stop smiling the entire class.”
“That was so much FUN! Can we do this every week?”
Here are the stats:
- We held 32 events
- 25 days of free health checks
- Gave away 1300 free apples
- Gave away hundreds of refillable water bottles and
- We collectively walked more than 100,000 steps – in just 20 minutes!
The Wellbeing Festival was another landmark in the WSLHD employee wellbeing program (the first was the launch of Fitness Passport: if you haven’t already signed up, you can find details here).
