Wellbeing events

From cooking classes to mindfulness, there's a wide range of regular wellbeing events to attend.

The Bank has been really practical, arranging for us to receive the equipment we needed to work effectively at home. And its other initiatives, such as Wellbeing Wednesday and the virtual quizzes, have allowed us to remain social and switch off from work a bit.

Below are just some of the things we do to give our colleagues support:

Thriving with nature - photography competition

To mark Mental Health Awareness Week this year, we ran an internal photography competition.

All colleagues were invited to submit a nature-themed photograph that evoked a sense of wellbeing or made you feel happy, with the winner and finalists being featured on our website.

You can see the winning entry at the top of this page and our four finalists below.
