Social events to
reconnect, reward and
revitalise your team

If you're looking to attract and retain the best talent, strengthen employee relationships and inject fun into the humdrum, Social Circle Wellbeing is for you.

We organise both custom and pre-packaged social events for small Manchester-based businesses that feel restricted by time, budget or resources.

"We're a small team of sixteen and so historically we've always relied on a member of our team to plan ad-hoc social events. Now we've started working with Social Circle Wellbeing, we'll never look back. Everything is taken care of, it's extremely affordable and has really brought our team closer together."

What is
social wellbeing?

You already know how valuable your people are, and you already know happy employees + happy customers = a successful business.

Social wellbeing is essential to creating strong relationships and a sense of belonging, improving our overall health. While social wellbeing is nothing new, the pandemic instigated a brighter spotlight on leaders. They're now expected to turn conversations around employee wellbeing into action.

The working world is full of EAP providers and wellbeing qualifications - why not bring something to your organisation that is actionable, affordable and engages the whole team? At Social Circle Wellbeing, we'll take the hassle out of planning social events for your company. We'll plan bespoke activities tailored to your business's needs, budget and employee preferences, ensuring everything runs smoothly from start to finish.

Whether you're getting to know each other in the great outdoors, over a few drinks or a night away, planning regular social activities will help rebuild connections and form strong working relationships, building a happier, healthier and more satisfied workforce.

We offer one-off and regular events designed to:

Provide your employees with a sense of belonging
Boost productivity
Re-establish human connection, social interaction and strengthen co-worker relationships
Maintain your company culture across a distributed workforce
Improve employee retention and job satisfaction
Reward your team for their hard work, show they're valued and create positive experiences
Attract the top talent

Meet your coordinator, Steve

Hi, I'm Steve.

I have 10 years' experience organising and running events for Social Circle Wellbeing's parent company, Social Circle. Social Circle is a members-only activity group for Manchester-based individuals interested in socialising, exploring and trying new experiences.

When the pandemic hit, most of us had to make drastic changes to how we interacted and socialised - not only in our personal lives, but in our work lives too. Our research found that HR professionals, founders and SME leaders were struggling to find the time and resources to manage and look after their employee social wellbeing.

While the global pandemic is temporary, it's unlikely that we'll ever go back to the traditional 9-5, Monday-Friday world of work that most of us were used to. As more people work across a distributed workforce, a sense of ‘belonging' is more important than ever. Social Circle Wellbeing was born out of the need for human connection in the corporate world.

I work with small businesses to ensure that their social wellbeing activities are managed effectively from start to finish. Whether planning a one-off event, or regular social activities, I'll manage everything from the planning stages right the way through to the taxi home!

"Steve has a knack for organising events that leave you feeling refreshed, energetic and with the glue applied back to the dispersed workplace dynamics. He is passionate about bringing the connection back into the real world and taking a breather from the virtual working from home environments. He will help you make the most of spending time together as a team and give your workplace a safe, fun and social opportunity to blow off some steam and feel connected."
