Banish those January Blues- why not join our team?

Published: Monday January 20 2020 by Melanie Crewe

At justteachers, we take the health and wellbeing of our employees very seriously. Being awarded the Great Place to Work™ and the Excellence in Wellbeing Awards™ in both 2018 and 2019, is demonstrative of the efforts we put in place to create a happy and healthy working environment, each day of the working year.

In 2005, Dr Cliff Arnall created the formula for the most miserable day of the working year:

Weather + debt x failing new Year’s Resolutions / low motivation levels= 3rd Monday in January

In the UK 12.8 million working days are lost due to work related stress, depression or anxiety, with 61% of people say they feel depressed on their way to work in January.

So today, we fully embrace ‘Blue Monday’ with a healthy attitude in celebration of all things positive. Our teams, wearing their brightest outfits, are being rewarded with the opportunity to win wellbeing leisure days, massages, days off and smoothie makers amongst plenty of other prizes.

Fancy joining our team? We’d love the hear from you. Take a look at the opportunities available and the benefits we offer here.
