SVH Inc. host event in response to Raising The Bar ‘Make a Pledge’ campaign

A Harrogate-based business has announced an event happening on 2nd of December 2021, as a response to West and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce’s Raising The Bar social value initiative, which encourages businesses to support and improve the community.

There’s been a fantastic uptake to the campaign, and SVH Inc., specialists in holistic wellbeing and happiness at work through Away Day learning experiences has made a pledge to support Mind in Harrogate with £5 per ticket sold for an Away Day experience holding at Hazlewood Castle on 2nd December, from 10am -2:30pm.

The event which interestingly is also called Raising The Bar is aimed at organisations, as a team building, recognition, and motivating experience. It includes a history tour of the castle, workshops on positivity and gratitude, creative and problem solving thinking, reflexology treatments, 2 course lunch and live music from a violinist. It is CPD certified, enabling attendees to convert the certificates received into Continuous Professional Development points.

Valentina and Stephen Hynes, owners of SVH Inc. describe themselves as Holistic Wellbeing & Happiness at Work Specialists helping businesses stay Superheroes by boosting their peoples’ superpowers with Employee Support through Away Day Learning Experiences.

SVH Inc. was borne out of the husband and wife’s close shave with what could have been a fatal consequence of work related stress and anxiety. In 2017, Stephen Hynes, who was a Senior Development Manager, overseeing multi-million GBP commercial property projects in the midst of a recession, suffered a heart attack brought on by work related stress and anxieties.

According to Valentina Hynes; “Before this, I had watched his smile dim, anxiety rise and work become a third partner in our marriage. This horrible experience led to us investigating wellbeing in the workplace. We found a gap in a holistic approach to Wellbeing and Happiness at Work through Experiences that provide up-skilling training, rejuvenating and inspiring opportunities. We use our Destination Partners (which include Castle Howard, Castle Allerton, Hazlewood Castle and the Cookery School at The Grand, York) as a springboard for creating connections to improve resilience.”

Other services offered by SVH Inc. includes Mental Health First Aid Training, wellbeing at work consultation, keynote speaking and DISC behavioural assessments.
