The 4th annual Workplace Wellbeing Day is taking place this year on Friday 13th April

The FDI are launching a national workplace wellbeing campaign and are encouraging all workplaces in Ireland to get involved by organising events aimed at enhancing and maintaining employee well being.

They are encouraging workplaces to get active by hosting a Lunchtime Mile event on April 13th, where employees can either run, walk or cycle the course. Ireland’s national physical activity plan states that we should be doing 30 minutes of physical exercise per day, and walking the lunchtime mile can go a long way towards reaching that target.

Other initiatives that are being organised by companies include Healthy Eating and Nutrition Talks, Massage, Yoga, Mindfulness and Pilates classes, Health Screening,  Cookery Demonstrations and dance classes.
