HR on the weekend: Little Feast, Passengers & Crisis...

This weekend Christmas has finally arrived, bringing with it a whole host of social events - brunch with relatives, prosecco with friends and of course, the last minute dash around the supermarket.  Or, if you’re finally released from work and plan to slip into a mulled wine slumber where all the days merge into one, then sit back, relax and have a gander at things you could be doing…

Go to - Little Feast, Sheperds Yard

If the thought of leftover turkey for a week is bringing you down, head to the Street Food festival Little Feast in Shepherd's Bush Yard. The market has been transformed into a quirky English winter garden, boasting Christmas trees, fairy lights and blankets to keep you toasty.

With stalls including the Mexican Le Bao, Bull & Rancher - serving up Churrasco (a traditional Latin American method of roasting meat), and Claw’s famous crab burgers, you’ll be spoilt for choice – and hopefully there won’t be a sprout in site.

Encouraging employees to get some fresh air after eating will have huge benefits on their health and wellbeing at work. Recent research from Benenden revealed that one in four employees eat at their desk five times a week, with 40% of those blaming ‘too much work’.

Helen Smith, Business Development Director at Benenden, said that “employers should also take their share of the blame” for this. They should ensure “their workplace policies encourage a proper lunch break, whatever the length of time allowed,” she continued.
