GCP recently hosted two wellbeing days for Cooper Parry at their East Midlands HQ and Birmingham offices. The Cooper Parry team had access to GCP’s multi-disciplinary team of human performance specialists across the two days including physical performance coaches, performance therapists, performance nutritionists and performance psychologists.
The GCP team ran a range of group workshops focused on mindset, movement and lifestyle, plus 1:1 sessions where Cooper Parry staff could come and talk individually to the specialists about any areas they wanted support with. There was even a healthy cooking demonstration to kick off each day with a local chef who made a range of healthy breakfast and snack ideas.
As part of GCP’s annual Curve programme for businesses, Cooper Parry have access to a range of company-wide days, workshops, webinars and challenges to engage the team and provide them with quality guidance and programmes to support their mental and physical health.
GCP Performance Coach Matt Jones said “The wellbeing days GCP ran earlier this month for Cooper Parry were my first chance to get onsite with our multi-disciplinary team and engage with our clients. Having the chance to speak to such a wide range of people from the Cooper Parry team across the days was superb. It was also fantastic to see that so many of the Cooper Parry team engage with the sessions and that our team were able to provide some great guidance and advice to people on health and fitness related areas. Also being able to witness how the new gym facility will provide even more support to the team at Cooper Parry was especially pleasing. Having seen first-hand the positive impact of quality onsite facilities and support specialists at Google, I know just how effective this combination can be for businesses that care about their overall performance”
Cooper Parry Senior People Business Partner Latoyah Allen Assoc CIPD said “I was really excited to take part in the wellbeing day! I ensured I booked in to as many sessions across the day as I could and made sure I had a 1:1 with a couple of the specialists to chat though a couple of questions I had around my fitness and nutrition.
I also really loved the flexibility and mobility session with Tom Heeley the Performance Therapist. I took away some great advice that I have been incorporating into my warm-ups before going running. We are looking forward to building the relationship with GCP across this first year of the Curve programme. I am planning to run a further performance psychology focused series of workshops for various teams across the business as they were also extremely useful and will be something that I can see a huge benefit from providing more access to our people at Cooper Parry”.
