A return to exhibiting saw a Midlands not-for-profit organisation sharing their expertise about health and wellbeing with businesses from across the region.

The Paycare team attended the recent Midlands Business Network Live Expo – sharing their new Workplace Wellbeing brochure with attendees.

Corporate Account Manager Stephen Burton-Pye said he and colleague Simon Cater were happy to be able to meet representatives from other organisations face-to-face for the first time in 18 months.

“We had a fantastic day at the Expo, using our new display materials for the first time, which included details of our Health Cash Plans and Mental Health First Aid training.

“Naturally, there are still many businesses who aren’t ready to resume face-to-face events yet – we are extremely mindful of this and plan to retain a blend of online, telephone and in-person meetings for the foreseeable future. But for those who were keen to meet in-person, it was great to have the opportunity to do so, following all of the Coronavirus safety guidelines of course.

“It was great to see and chat to hundreds of people – our brand-new Wellbeing Brochure received lots of lovely, positive feedback and our Buzz Wire game was a great way of engaging people to come over and chat to us.

“We were so impressed with how smoothly the event was run that we have already booked our next one in Leicester in September, and can’t wait to get back out there and chat to organisations about how Paycare can support the health and wellbeing of their employees.

“In the meantime, we’ll keep supporting businesses through a variety of communication channels so they can contact us in any way they feel comfortable to do so.”

Anyone who didn’t get the chance to pick up a Workplace Wellbeing brochure at the Expo can access a digital version at paycare.org/workplace-wellbeing.
