Support at your fingertips

Read our wellbeing blogs
Your colleagues from across A2Dominion regularly blog about a range of health topics in our wellbeing blogs. Why not join in the conversation.
Our wellbeing ambassadors are represented across the business. Contact any one of them if you have any ideas about wellbeing initiatives you would like to see implemented. Some examples of initiatives they’ve run this year include:
- Together for mental health
Colleagues worked together to organise a packed schedule of events for Mental Health Week. From yoga, meditation, and a laughter session to chats over a cuppa to find out what support is available, we ensured mental health was openly discussed.
I loved the yoga session! I have been doing yoga for the past three years or so. With lockdown I have practiced a bit more frequently because it’s a quiet exercise to do when you live in a flat! The mid-day break to breathe and reset was very much appreciated, and Jen is a wonderful instructor.
- Stepping up!
This spring, colleagues from across A2Dominion walked, ran and staggered nearly 48 million steps in our first ever team steps challenge. Over 200 people took part and we boosted our team spirit, our physical and mental health and even our competitive spirit!
The steps challenge has been a great initiative and a team challenge I’ve really enjoyed being a part of. The team spirit has been great fun and after such a long time working from home, the extra steps it’s made me get out and do can only have been great for my health too.
My mental health did improve as music; fresh air and a feeling of achievement has made me realise that any exercise is good for me and I can use it as a coping strategy with my challenge with menopause. I will continue to monitor my steps after this challenge is over as I know doing so helps my mind and body.
- Talking about money
We gathered all our money saving hints and tips to share with our colleagues in support of Talk Money Week to help ease financial worries.
- Lockdown support
Since the start of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, we’ve supported our people with managers’ toolkits, managing your anxiety livestreams and regular reminders about the available support.
