Wellbeing Week 2023

Welcome to Wellbeing Week 2023!

At Menzies Aviation, our wellbeing focus for 2023 is talking and building connections. Our wellbeing theme – Let's Talk – has three main aims:

1. To highlight the benefits of talking & effective communication for personal wellbeing, and for general wellbeing in the workplace;

2. To provide information and/ or training for our people, to encourage confidence and openness to talk;

3. To provide opportunities for our people to talk together, to practice effective and respectful communication and to make new connections.

Go to the sections below to find out more.

Benefits of talking

Building connections and talking with others can boost our overall wellbeing and help us to thrive, both as individuals and as a team. Talking helps us to:

- Understand each other better;

- Support each other in times of need;

- Work better together

- Avoid confilct and disagreement

- Build our network of connections at work and home.

It also makes life more fun and interesting, so let’s get talking! There are many more benefits of talking, for ourselves, for others and for the team or community as a whole. Think about whether talking could have a positive impact on you or on others. Perhaps you could start by simply saying hello to more people this week.

Get involved

This week, we are encouraging our teams to get talking at one of our wellbeing-focused team events. Everyone at Menzies Aviation has a voice, and it is important to us that we give those voices space and opportunity to be heard.

To celebrate world wellbeing week, your teams will be holding a wellbeing-focused town hall meeting, group discussion or activity.

We hope that you get involved and enjoy talking together.

Don’t forget to share details of your team event to be in with a chance of winning our wellbeing week competition. Scroll down on this page for the competition details.

Going forward

Think about how your team can encourage more talking beyond this week, and this year. Perhaps your team could choose one new talking iniative to take forward, such as:

- A weekly team huddle

- Regular team socials

- Including wellbeing conversations and topics in your town hall meetings

- Regular technology-free break times

Why not try it and see if your team can enjoy some of the many benefits that come with talking. We'd love to hear how you get on, so please let us know if you start a new initiative and any impact that this has on your team.
