As part of Bouygues Construction UK's dedication to nurturing resilient employees, wellbeing is a priority for us, especially given the current climate. At the end of January, our internal women’s network, Welink UK, welcomed Samantha Axtell, a coaching psychologist (MA (Oxon), MSc (Coaching Psychology), MBPsS), who ran a Wellbeing workshop with over 250 employees.

Sam has a particular interest in enabling individuals to flourish through optimising their personal capacity and resilience. She works across the globe with business owners, leaders and managers to support them in unlocking their full potential or that of their team. The workshop Sam ran with Bouygues Construction UK focused on learning how to recognise stress responses and common mind traps in order to utilise this awareness to deal better with the impacts of day-to-day life.

Sam said of the event:

“It was a real delight for me to be invited by Bouygues Construction UK to speak at their Welink event. The topic of flourishing is close to my heart. Never more so than during this time of the pandemic do we all need to take care of ourselves. From here, we can care for others. It was a privilege to have the chance to share the science of stress, how we, as human beings, respond in challenging times and what we can do to rise above these moments and sustain ourselves."

Amelle Mestari, Chair Welink UK, said:

“Sam provided us with a dynamic demonstration of the need for a healthy attitude to ourselves before we can flourish, produce creative work and inspire others.  The success of this workshop can be measured by the number of colleagues who have already confirmed that they have implemented several of the tips that Sam shared on their day to day lives.”  

Harry Ellis, Internal Communications Manager, said:

"Sam's workshop reminded us that looking after our body and wellbeing is key to ensuring we can perform to the best of our ability. I've incorporated her practical tips on recharging the batteries and regular movement into my daily routine!"
