Wellbeing weeks roundup

We practise our company values every day

The past 2 weeks at dxw have been filled with activities which support the wellbeing of our team. We’ve had the opportunity to enjoy painting and drawing classes, board games, singing, dumpling making, free gym and yoga sessions, and more.

It’s been pretty inspiring watching our dxw and Tradecraft colleagues working hard as ever on great client work, but still managing to find time before and after work and over lunch to do lots of amazing stuff for each other.

We’ve also been sharing different articles, such as this lovely post about human connection, and we’ve contributed to a daily #wellbeingweeks newsletter which includes tips and reflections.

Why we did it and what happens next

At dxw, we practise our company values every day – investing in each other and our work, committing ourselves to being better. It’s part of who we are. There is never a quiet day for our team, and we’re really proud of what we achieved during our wellbeing weeks.

Our self-care and wellbeing awareness didn’t stop on Friday. Sketching time is set to be a regular thing, as are our cooking nights. We’re really looking forward to seeing what new and innovative ideas we come up with over the next few months.

The goal of the last 2 weeks was not only to give the team a chance to unwind together, but also to better understand what wellbeing means to each individual. It will help us decide how we support the wellbeing of the team in future.
