In Touch Games have around 300 employees, many who work within a call centre setting that has been identified as one of the most stressful job roles.

Halesowen BID arranged for Artemis Wellbeing to teach a yoga therapy, meditation and mindfulness session, whilst Halesowen College health and beauty students attended to deliver hand and arm massages and pampering manicures.

Blue Serenity Work-Place Wellbeing offered back and shoulder massages whilst HSBC Halesowen gave tips for financial wellbeing.

The ‘Thrive at Work’ representative from West Midlands Combined Authority also came along to emphasise that a healthy and happy workforce are more productive and therefore more sustainable.

The event also offered nutritional advice and fitness consultations.

BID manager Vicky Rogers said: "In Touch Games has always been at the forefront of delivering workplace wellbeing with a fully equipped gym on site, break out rooms, delightful ambience and setting and a healthy option restaurant for all employees to use free of charge."

The day was concluded by a visit from a furry friend ‘Biggy’ the French bulldog puppy.

Vicky said: "Biggy put a smile on everyone’s face releasing laughter and endorphins, creating a general feeling of wellbeing amongst everyone."
