Staff across all sites participated in a H20 Water Challenge, supporting the physical, mental and financial elements of our Corporate Responsibility Programme.
Staff were encouraged to share any health benefits or achievements they encountered over the week-long challenge.
Physical Wellbeing: Water helps to maximise your physical performance. It is recommended that we drink at least 6-8 glasses of water every day. Good hydration assists with the management of diabetes; reduces constipation, urinary tract infections and incontinence; improves oral health and the appearance of skin.
Mental Wellbeing: Drinking water improves your state of mind. Mild dehydration has been shown to have a negative impact on mood and concentration. It can also help reduce the onset of headache.
Financial Wellbeing : Water coolers are freely available to all staff onsite, but we also donated 50% of the price of bottled water at Wythall to our charity partners - Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and London’s Air Ambulance, for the duration of the challenge.
