On the 20th December 2018, Gratte Brothers hosted its first Tea & Talk event, held at one of our London sites, to promote mental health awareness. The idea for the event was proposed by one of our Wellbeing Health Champions, Ahmet Hassani who felt strongly that a simple conversation could make a world of difference for some people.
We know that the Christmas period is not always an easy time for everyone, so we wanted to do something simple but positive by asking everyone to take a second to destress and have a chat over a cup of Tea or Coffee and a biscuit before the Christmas break. We made sure that the event wasn’t only open to our staff but to all staff working on the site to ensure everyone felt included.
Our first event was a big success and saw hundreds of people get involved. We hope that our event will inspire others to do the same within their own workplace and we will keep you updated on when our next event will be.
