Colleagues often have hidden talents or activities they would love to try or get back in to. Why not create work 'clubs' for horse riding, cycling or singing, led by a 'expert' colleague and arrange a subsidised day of lessons for example?

Fay commented on Subsidised activities and workplace 'experts'

Thanks Djorn! Those three activities were just meant to act as examples, but reading it back I realise that might not have come across! I think this concept could apply to any activity or hobby as there is always an argument for improved wellbeing from something you enjoy.

I love this Sarah. Along the lines of engaging with kids and reaching out to the wider community, I like the idea of workplaces inviting schools or local groups, like the scouts, in for a gym class in the gym or a meeting room, or for a healthy meal in the cafeteria. This could work really well for schools with limited facilities and could be connected to a mentoring or reading scheme between the schools and employees. Perhaps workplaces could demonstrate their own healthy initiatives so that kids know what to look for when they start at work!
