In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week, which was themed around nature, staff enjoyed a complementary food box with a mug to mark the day.
During the pandemic, millions have turned to nature to support their physical and emotional wellbeing. According to the Mental Health Foundation, more than half of UK adults said that being close to nature improved their mental health. Similarly, almost two-thirds of people said they experienced positive emotions being close to nature.
Raising awareness about health and wellbeing is hugely important to Spectra. The firm actively participates in a range of socially responsible measures, including charitable activities and staff volunteering projects to raise funds for a wide range of good causes.
Hosting an outdoor afternoon tea event was the perfect opportunity for Spectra staff to take a break and come together to enjoy the benefits of the outdoor environment. The afternoon tea food boxes were filled with plenty of homemade goodies kindly made by Bake a Cake. The event proved highly positive, and the marquee initially erected for the day has been left up for staff to enjoy for the remainder of summer.
Joe Maynard, Managing Director at Spectra Packaging, said, “As with so many people, the past year or so has proved challenging. I’m sure everyone has experienced difficulties during the pandemic, taking a toll on our mental health.
He added, “This year has been a very busy one for Spectra, and the event was a great opportunity to thank our staff for all their hard work and support as we look forward to some degree of normality.”
