Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service Headquarters


Staffordshire Fire and Rescue |  Women’s Health Day

We’re pleased to be showcasing what Human-Nature Escapes CIC has to offer in terms of supporting workplace wellbeing at Staffordshire Fire Service HQ in Stone on 18th November (Men’s Health) and 2nd December (Women’s Health).

Workplace health and wellbeing is an important issue – it’s been shown that caring for employee wellbeing can result in massive improvements in employee engagement, much less presenteeism (being present at work but not being fully present and performing your best) – which in turn can lead to better motivation and increased productivity.


Human-Nature Escapes CIC - Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Wellbeing Days

We’ll be showing how our ‘inspired by nature’ services, like green exercise and therapeutic art activities, can not only promote better community wellbeing, but can support workplace wellbeing too.

We believe that we are well placed to also help individual employees return to work and stay resilient and well after a period of absence from work through stress, depression of anxiety.  We think our approach ties neatly with the Fire Service’s excellent ‘OurBlueLight’ initiative, which is also being supported by mental health charity Mind.   This separate initiative supports all emergency service personnel – who like any other workforce, can experience mental wellbeing issues.  Whilst our emergency services do a wonderful job, they are not ‘super-heroes’, and a uniform can’t protect them from common mental wellbeing issues – these can affect anybody, from any walk of life.

Each health day will include keynote speakers, including information relevant to Men’s and Women’s health on the relevant days.  A number of other suppliers will be showcasing too – including our partner 4MeHealth & Fitness (who already provide services to the Ambulance Service).
