January resolutions received a boost at HBE when we hosted a health and well being initiative in our Newry Head office. This pilot event was attended by 15 HBE staff from across the company.

Delegates enjoyed a healthy lifestyle talk by Roisin Armstrong, a dietary health expert and columnist in the Irish News, followed by a talk by Occupational Health Nurse, Mary Doran. There was also a confidential ‘one to one’ consultation for each person as well as a yoga session and Indian head massage.

HR Manager, Christine Swail commented “We are delighted with the uptake within the HBE team. As a Health & Safety consultancy, we all understand the benefits of having a healthy and highly motivated team.

This pilot event has certainly created a buzz around the company. It has helped re-energise all those New Year’s resolutions which usually fall away by this stage in the year. As another staff benefit in Newry, we have also started a running and walking club in the company, which has grown from strength to strength as more see the benefits of exercise.

Overall, this Health and Wellbeing promotion has been very popular and will hopefully, be repeated as we see the results from this pilot.”
