Avon Wildlife Trust runs a number of employee engagement days, which have become increasingly popular as Covid-19 has meant employees have spent less time with the office, and with each other. The days are designed to team morale, connectedness and wellbeing by getting together for a day out immersed in nature.
“Our team had a very enjoyable, productive and insightful day at Grow Wilder – we learnt about ways to support wildlife in the South West, we cleared space for some young trees to grow and helped out on site, and most importantly we had a good laugh and bonded together as a team.” - Data & Performance team, Planning Inspectorate at Grow Wilder on 05 November 2021
A survey of two groups in 2021 found that at the end of the day, participants felt calmer (32%), happier (52%), more positive (58%), more energetic (37%) and more relaxed (37%). 79% of participants felt connected, or deeply connected, with nature.
