Capella Workplace Wellbeing Day

Interested in getting your business spending time outside in green spaces and giving back at the same time? The Wildlife Trust offer workplace wellbeing days. They can provide a half or full day of activities to promote better mental wellbeing.


The Capella Workplace Wellbeing Day was at Brandon Nature Reserve, Coventry last week, where we experienced some of the activities on offer. These included a wellbeing walk on the reserve, using photography for wellbeing, mindfulness, and grounding techniques.

The team also learnt how to support the Wildlife Trust through an ecological survey and species identification techniques on the meadow, including transects, bioblitz and sweep nets.

The final activity of the day was to make wildflower seed bombs to take home and scatter.

To help reconnect people with nature, the Trust use the Nationally recognised 5 Ways to Wellbeing:

  1. Connect
  2. Notice
  3. Get Active
  4. Learn Something New
  5. Give Back

You can find out more about the 5 Ways to Wellbeing in this short video on You Tube:

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust is the leading local independent conservation organisation. Their mission is to bring people closer to nature and create a land rich in wildlife.

Supported by their passionate members and dedicated volunteers they are working to bring about nature’s recovery across Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull through practical action, education and influencing behaviour change.

The Capella Workplace Wellbeing Day was enjoyed so much, the team suggested we should make every team meeting, a chance to spend time in green spaces and reconnect with nature.

So why not encourage your own team to get closer to nature and take the time to reconnect? To Give Back is one of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing and we can all do our bit to help the environment and our local communities. It also helps us demonstrate Capella’s core values of Pride, Integrity, and Passion that drive all that we do.

We felt we were making a difference and we’re sure that you’ll enjoy it too


  • Capella have provided a superbly structured programme, and have proven to be entirely supportive of delegates in completing their apprenticeship with confidence. Key to this has been the instructor’s knowledge of the subject matter, allowing him to apply the theory to a variety of scenarios in the delegates’ work. We have appreciated the instructor being approachable, flexible and understanding of the challenges of extra-curricula activity for people with busy jobs. All staff that we’ve engaged with at Capella have been professional, welcoming and clear in their communication.

  • Capella’s focus on developing long-term relationships and their continual search for innovative approaches to upskilling has enabled Toyota and many other employers to learn and apply best practice Problem Solving tools which deliver great outcomes for all. In our experience, no other training provider has taken such a lead role in the development of sector wide initiatives such as the Automotive Industrial Partnership and development of the ‘improvement suite’ of Apprenticeship standards. Capella constantly seeks innovative opportunities to deliver an excellent service to the learner and to the business.

  • We have found Capella really professional and flexible and their passion for delivering high quality training is a culture we have in common between us and has made working with them highly beneficial. Their knowledge of the automotive sector in particular has also been very useful and has simplified working together to create a really excellent training programme. In addition, they have managed to modify their usual commercial programmes in line with government approved apprenticeship standards, which has enabled us to utilise our Apprenticeship Levy to fund the training.

  • Capella are delivering the Business Improvement L4 programme to a cohort of 12 staff at our Barnard Castle site. We chose Capella after a series of meeting with Kate and her team and from day 1 we have been impressed with the professionalism, enthusiasm and knowledge of the team. The staff have really thrived on the learning schedule and through working with the programme tutors and we have had nothing but positive feedback. Internal changes on site have impacted on the programme delivery, which Capella took this in their stride, adapting delivery timelines, providing support and working with those facing change has added another dimension to the relationship that has been developed between the site and Capella. While still in delivery mode GSK already believes that the programme has been a success for all involved and we look forward to its completion and sharing that success within the organisation.
