In 2015, it was estimated that presenteeism cost the UK £15.1billion. Presenteeism refers to an individual functioning at less than optimum capacity whilst at work and has a much greater impact on productivity than absenteeism. At the YCF, we strongly believe that enabling staff to take part in activity is a preventative measure for possible stress in the workplace.
The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation (YCF) are providing Yorkshire Cricket staff with opportunities to stay active, relax and improve wellbeing throughout the year through a range of groups and sessions. The YCF offer staff the opportunity to take part in YCF Running Club, weekly yoga sessions and table tennis. All of these activities have known health benefits, not only physical but mental and social.
Foundations for Health
Working alongside the Leeds Rhinos Foundation, the YCF delivered wellbeing days at main sponsor’s, Emerald Publishers Head Quarters where we delivered nutrition workshops, yoga, sleep science workshops and several other workshops aimed at improving health and wellbeing holistically.
