Grŵp Cynefin launches well-being scheme for staff

Byd o Les (which translates as “a world of good”) has been created in collaboration with Andrew Tamplin of Canna Consulting, who has worked on well-being sessions with the group in the past. The first session will be held today (Wednesday, February 3)and will kick off a year of activities designed to share knowledge and provide encouragement and understanding of the importance of mental and physical health and well-being.

The first session is entitled Mind, Body and Soul, and will be held over Zoom. The sessions and additional information will also be offered on Clic, Grŵp Cynefin’s staff intranet.

“This is no doubt a difficult time for staff,” said Gwenda Squire, Grŵp Cynefin’s HR Manager. “As well as concern for loved ones and general concern about the pandemic, some people feel isolated working from home, some are working and caring for children, and the nature of how we work now means it can be more screen-heavy – for many it has meant a complete change to their working environment.

“Doing their jobs within these changes is a lot to ask of our staff and it’s important that they feel supported. Byd o Les will now be at the heart of the care and support of our staff.”

“Health and wellbeing is more important than ever,” said Andrew Tamplin, who works with clients across Wales. “This new programme will offer support and advice on keeping mentally and physically healthy, not just within working hours and the new working environment but in a wider context. It will also be an opportunity for staff to share their tips and good practice.

“Byd o Les is a comprehensive scheme to support staff, and many of the elements and advice will also be suitable for sharing with tenants and partners. The scheme is an excellent example of how companies should be seeking to promote and encourage good and healthy practice amongst their workforce and I look forward to working with Grŵp Cynefin over the coming months.”
