Milly Hutchinson, Head of Communications & Public Affairs UK&I at AkzoNobel, said: “We are committed to ensuring that AkzoNobel is a brilliant place to work. The wellbeing of our colleagues has always been a priority but, over the past year, the need to offer different support as we navigate this challenging period has become increasingly apparent.
“We’re delighted that so many people attended the sessions, and that so many had family members join in the activities and events.
“Wellfest has provided colleagues with a wonderful opportunity to talk to other people in the business that they might not have otherwise had the chance to, which we hope to continue in the future.”
The belief that its people are the most important asset for building a sustainable future is central to AkzoNobel's People. Planet. Paint. approach.
Steve Hill, Territory Manager at AkzoNobel UK & Ireland, part of AkzoNobel’s internal Thrive team that organised the festival, added: “The responses we’ve had have been heartwarming and it’s great to see so many people inspired by what they’ve heard.
“It’s also very encouraging to hear how attendees plan to implement the tips, exercises and lessons they have learnt through the events into their daily lives.”
Wellfest comes as AkzoNobel has once again been recognised by the Top Employers Institute as a Top Employer in the UK.
