At HR Anchor, we know how important it is to look after our people.
We offer our workforce not only an excellent holiday allowance but also the opportunity to “Be Your Best Self”.
If there is a big event coming up, the first day of school, a house move, a special new arrival, a day in bed for some R&R or giving back to the community, whatever the reason, we offer the opportunity for staff to take time to be their best selves. We know having time to do things outside of work and not using holiday allowance to do so is key to having a well-rounded, motivated and happy workforce.
June 2022 Victoria took some “Be Your Best Self” time to help at her children’s school summer fair.
“What a whirlwind of an event this summer fair was! After 2 years of Covid putting a stop to most additional school activities, it was a wonderful experience and great to be involved in raising funds for the school to enrich the lives of all the children in the school. On the day itself, I assigned myself the task of glitter tattoos and nail painting. It was no mean feat! I painted nails and tattooed over 100 children during the 2-hour event. The whole fair raised £2740 in total. We are all thrilled with the success of the event and I would like to thank HR Anchor for allowing me the opportunity to take some time out to help.”
I took a “be good to yourself day” in July with plans to help my twin sister, who is a teacher, to decorate her classroom. Sadly, we had car issues and we were unable to make it to the school to do as we had planned. This ended up a serendipitous moment as we diverted to Delamere forest where we took a beautiful woodland walk along the famous Gruffalo trail, taking in the views of the lake and enjoying hot drinks and cakes at their café.
