The Marine Institute is delighted to participate again in the 5th annual National Workplace Wellbeing Day 2019 taking place this Friday April 12th. Recently recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland, the Marine Institute is proud to support and recognise the biggest celebration of workplace health and wellbeing in the Irish calendar.
An initiative of Ibec and the Nutrition and Health Foundation, Ireland's National Workplace Wellbeing Day is a nationwide campaign designed to help improve employee health through promoting better nutrition and physical activity in the workplace. To mark the day, the Marine Institute has organised for a number of wellbeing events across its various locations nationwide including Galway, Newport, Dublin and our Satellite Locations. Activities to promote this initiative for employees are focused on work life balance, physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing and resilience, yoga, healthy eating and the “Lunchtime Mile” which has been a great success in previous years.
Speaking about the event Catherine Johnston, Head of H.R, Marine Institute said, "The Marine Institute was officially recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2019 following surveys of our polices, practices and culture in conjunction with Great Place to Work Ireland. This is a major achievement for the Institute and is reflective of the people that we have working with us and the efforts that they make every day to ensure that we have a positive work environment. At the Marine Institute our people have always been our greatest asset and we look forward to participating in initiatives that support a positive work environment and promote workplace health and wellbeing.”
