“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”
– Marcus Aurelius
Always ready to help the team decompress, unwind and align better, the People & Culture team spearheaded a heartwarming initiative on Stress Awareness Day by gifting every employee at COLABS an anti-stress kit!
“We got treated to a small surprise as we walked into work. Arranged by our amazing Niha Iqbal (Manager Recruitment & OD at COLABS) including the People & Culture team, the team was gifted anti-stress kits packed with stress balls, stickers, and chocolates,” stated Beebrak Gurchani, the Product Lead at COLABS. “I’m grateful for this show of support, where stress has become an almost permanent fixture in our professional and personal lives because of factors beyond our control. Today was a great reminder to allow yourself a break and chill!”
An invisible killer, stress is one of the main causes of some of the most deadly diseases. From cancer and heart disease, including mental health issues, it is imperative that organizations plan stress management initiatives to provide a sense of relief and relaxation to their employees.
“Keeping our employees happy and stress-free has been a core part of our philosophy as we believe that it plays a vital role in keeping the team’s morale high and more bonded,” said Asad Ur Rehman, the Head of People & Culture at COLABS.
Kiran Fatima, the Creative Associate at COLABS said that the distribution of the anti-stress kits was a heartwarming gesture. “I loved the stress balls the most, I used mine throughout the day!”
