To ensure balanced mental wellbeing, employees of Cordillera Career Development College (CCDC) are provided “rest and recreation days,” aside from their regular work breaks.
For 2022, employees embarked on wellness breaks on February 21 and June 8 at the ADMIRALS Farms Park which offered relaxation activities such as forest bathing and hiking.
As a deviation, other employees also took on their rest and recreation day at the Reiwa Resort and Camping Grounds, near the seashores of Bauang, La Union on July 29.
The “rest days” provide the employees a sort of destressing to allow a smoother and more efficient working relationship with their colleagues.
The events also included team-building activities meant to foster improved interpersonal relationships and building mutual trust and confidence. Numerous studies have shown that rest and recreation breaks are considered mental wellness activities which prevent overloading of stress leading to burnouts.
