Allianz hosts staff wellbeing events for International Stress Awareness Week
Allianz Insurance has been holding a series of wellbeing events and activities this week to promote the importance of International Stress Awareness Week and raise funds for charity partner, Mind.
Across all Allianz branches, employees were invited to schedule a ten minute virtual reality holiday (pictured) and experience 360º video footage and spatial sounds, so they could switch off and enjoy the beach, ocean, wind, waves or forest streams at a location of their choice.
Wellbeing workshops were held to share simple tips on how to keep a balanced mindset and thrive in a busy world. Allianz also distributed a series of ‘Mindful Minutes’ meditation audio clips and created a mindful music playlist to give employees tools to aid their personal mindfulness journeys.
Throughout the week a wide range of fundraising activities were hosted, including fitness challenges, ‘Crafternoons’ - Mind’s crafting fundraiser, reflexology and express facials.
Carolyn Rich, head of brand management and social responsibility, Allianz Insurance, said:
“It’s been fantastic to see so many employees engage with the activities taking place across our offices for International Stress Awareness Week. We know that making mental health visible helps to give employees the confidence to voice their concerns as well as showing our commitment as a business to this important issue.
“Our activities this week are just a small part of what we’re doing all year round to help employees look after their mental health. It’s a real priority for us to build on our existing employee wellbeing programme and really focus on making Allianz a healthier place to work. We’ve trained mental health first aiders across our offices and everyone has access to an employee assistance helpline as well as a range of mental health information and webinars.
