April: wellbeing in the workplace

April is Stress Awareness Month, and to mark that we held our first members' social of the year across our Falmer and Croydon hubs last week. Wellbeing Day was a great chance to get out of the office, eat some delicious food and socialise with the Sussex Innovation community.

As well as free massage tasters and discounted yoga classes, we also took in a few workshops led by members with a focus on workplace wellbeing and mental health. If you're interested in exploring innovative ways to reduce stress and boost productivity, check out our upcoming Knowledge Hub on the 4-day work week in the events round-up below.

And if you're looking at other strategies and tactics to improve workplace wellbeing, we'd love to hear from you and find out more about your experience.
