Wear it Pink

‘Wear it Pink’ Day for Breast Cancer Awareness

As part of our Wellness calendar, our team in Brigg organised a bake sale to raise funds for ‘Wear it Pink’ day in late October, while the famous pink ribbons were sold by our Balbriggan team. A total of €300 was raised, with Techrete matching that figure for a sizeable donation to this worthy cause.

With one in nine women developing breast cancer during the course of their lifetime, it is vital that we continue to raise awareness and support women who are affected by the disease.

30 Day Challenge for Stress Awareness Month

Techrete’s Wellness Team Challenge the Company to Walk 1.25 Million Steps in April.

April is ‘Stress Awareness’ month and it’s no surprise after a full year of the pandemic that the theme around the initiative is ‘Regain Connection, Certainty & Control’. 

Walking is low-impact and one of the most effective stress busting activities we can do so we’re hoping that we can  collectively walk the 1.25 million steps from our facility in Brigg to the HQ in Balbriggan to Leicester in April!

We will send a weekly ‘steps’ update to all who have registered for extra motivation!

Yoga at Techrete

Techrete Wellness Team Launch Yoga Class

The inaugural ‘Yoga @ Techrete’ class took place on the grounds of our Balbriggan facility in August. The Wellness team were delighted with the response and bi-weekly classes are planned for any Techrete employee who would like to join in.

A strip of grassy land at the Techrete perimeter with trees either side was created as part of our Sustainability programme and now doubles up as the perfect, peaceful location for our classes.

The benefits of Yoga practice are numerous – the postures are a form of strength training, making practitioners more resilient and flexible, which in turn relieves physical tension. Yoga promotes mental focus which is key to stress management.

Our Yoga class is just one element of our overall Wellness Programme which was launched early in 2020. With the unprecedented events of 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic, this programme is vitally important to ensure that we are supporting our employees in every possible way.

Techrete Take Part in National Workplace Wellbeing Day 2020

National Work-Place Wellbeing Day 2020

This year due to the Covid-19 crisis, for most of our team, the workplace was our home on 1st of May. That didn’t stop us from getting involved and Techrete encouraged our team to either take part in an online mindfulness class at lunch time, or go for a socially distant 2km walk or run to get our daily dose of Vitamin D and get those endorphins going.

Below are just some of the photo’s taken by the team.
