Health and Wellbeing

Morgan Sindall and its subcontractors all have strong beliefs regarding the wellbeing of the workforce and staff. As a result, during a sit down with our subcontractors, we all decided as a team to stop all work on Wednesdays between 9 and 10 am, and in this hour, only using phones for social purposes rather than taking work calls and getting away from computers.

Instead we may go for a walk, play games such as darts or draughts, read a book or anything else that isn’t work related, including talking about work. We may even have a BBQ at this time – anything that takes the mind off work. We have created an area to sit with grass and a picnic bench.

It has worked to great effect: in spite of losing an hour, it actually increases performance and productivity due to this de-stress and relaxation period. It is also a way of bringing subcontractors together and learning a bit about each other and get them working together.
