Stepping out with Health & Wellbeing Day

National warehousing, logistics and courier firm The NX Group has recently held a Health & Wellbeing Day to raise awareness among its drivers of the importance of staying active, healthy and well-rested, and to encourage its whole staff to prioritise exercise inside and outside the workplace. 

Managers at the Crick-based company met with the firm’s drivers at 4:30am to hand out packs containing pedometers, healthy breakfast bars and a step-by-step guide produced by the firm’s HR department with tips for getting a good night’s sleep. Pedometers have also been given out to the rest of the company’s staff, with plans in place for step challenges aimed at encouraging employees to compete to take the most steps in a week.

The aim of this initiative for The NX Group is to ensure that its employees take care of their mental wellbeing as well as their physical health. This includes staff with variable shift patterns, as well as those who spend long periods of time on the road, for whom a good night’s sleep is vital.  

Rebecca Bateman, HR Manager at The NX Group, said:

“It’s important for all drivers to ensure that they are eating well, staying active and getting enough sleep on a regular basis, for their own wellbeing and safety as well as others’. We hope that our Health & Wellbeing Day encourages our drivers and other staff to take good care of their health at work and after work, too.”
