4 hobbies that can make you a better employee

3. Go dog walking

Getting some exercise and taking along a furry pal sounds like a great way to spend an evening.

Dame Fiona Kendrick, Chairwoman and CEO at Nestlé UK & Ireland,explained why interaction with dogs can actually help boost work ethic – and encourages more offices to become dog-friendly.

In an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, she said: “We see our workplace environment as a very important part of employee wellbeing. And so, to that end we decided to invite our four-legged dog friends into work.

“We believe that investment in our employees, to help their broader physical and mental health, is so important. Life is, obviously, pretty stressful for a lot of people, and I think it is therefore businesses responsibility to step up, recognise that and play their role in it.”

4. Creative writing

Another way to stimulate that grey matter is to take up creative writing. Whether that be registering for a class, or just taking fifteen minutes out of your day to write down some thoughts, this is a great way to let off steam.

This hobby will teach you to engage the creative side of your brain, a skill that is in high demand in the workplace.
