The project team at the Grosvenor Crescent site were under a lot of pressure to deliver a difficult project on time, budget and to a very high standard. This resulted in a few colleagues noting they may be showing signs of stress.
As a result of this, the project team devised a Stress Break Rota. This entailed members of the same sub teams pairing up and covering each other when their counterpart was on a stress break. This stress break was a half hour break in the middle of the working day, additional to the lunch break, to enable staff to take time out and de-stress.
With work being covered, the staff felt no negative feelings about taking this break, and as this was backed from senior management it was a huge success. The team utilised their close proximity to Hyde Park in London and often took breaks walking through the park, adding additional health benefits.
