Ireland PR, Social and Creative agency, Clearbox, has become the first agency in the world to create a dedicated in-house yoga studio following a €57k investment in employee wellness in 2019.
The self-funded investment includes a number of programmes and practices designed to empower employees by providing access to self-care programmes, aimed at improving physical and mental wellbeing. As well as a drive towards physical wellbeing, the investment includes a custom partnership with a BACP approved therapist to offer a programme of counselling and life management sessions.
The newly created yoga studio, which boasts full length landscape wall art created by local artist, Stephen Whalley, doubles as a meditation room and provides a quiet space where the team can practice meditation or take some time away, as and when required.
Clearbox has also appointed a Spirit Ambassador, responsible for overseeing the implementation of ‘Team Spirit’ across the agency with fun events, weekly team meetings and ensuring the staff are rewarded with regular treats and surprises.
The company’s unique ‘Smells Like Team Spirit’ strategy is based upon three key pillars; Create It, Develop It and Support It, where employee benefits focus on creating a great working environment, a custom development and mentoring scheme for each team member and a wellbeing initiative designed to promote a healthy work life balance.
Clearbox is a creative communications agency with offices in Belfast and Yorkshire.
