Dixons brighten up Blue Monday!
19th January 2016
This year we supported the mental health charity AWARE’s Brighten up Blue Monday initiative which was held on what is known to be the most depressing day of the year. AWARE run this initiative on the middle Monday in January each year to raise awareness of mental health issues and to encourage workplaces to have a little fun on an otherwise potentially gloomy day. We asked all of our staff to wear something yellow to work that day and invited everyone to an afternoon tea break in our main offices. We were delighted that all of our staff took part in the initiative and sported a variety of outfits from yellow clothing and hair accessories to yellow wigs. Our health and wellbeing group plan to organise further mental health training and awareness sessions throughout the year with support from our partner AWARE.
