June Harvey blogs about our last event - Wellbeing and Christmas Fayre at Park Plaza Riverbank

The Atmosphere:

The backdrop of The Thames and Big Ben set the scene for an evening of consideration of the link between Wellbeing and Engagement. Admittedly the addition of a Christmas Tree populated by gingerbread men, a Sushi Bar and Mulled wine added a particularly benevolent atmosphere in which to consider the matter!

Hr Professionals attending the event on Monday at Park Plaza Riverbank were able to do their ‘Christmas shopping’ of New Year employee benefit additions all in one room.

A ten minute shoulder massage broke down some shoulder tension which left arms more flexible to sample the healthy Sushi from the hotel’s restaurant Chino Latino (http://www.chinolatino.eu/london) and carob brownies at the Superwellness table whilst gaining advice and information on how to make 2015 a happier healthier year not only for those present but teams across London and the Home Counties.

Combining interesting people,great food, learning and useful contacts is what makes an HR in Hospitality event this season’s ‘must do!’
