Iteracy Web Design

Two friendly people who happen to be expert website designers.

What we do:

We're friendly web developers who believe in plain English, good customer service and beautiful, unique websites that fit you perfectly.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

Health is a top priority for us personally, but as a small business it's crucial that we minimise days lost to sickness so we can be as productive as possible.  
Living and working together can be very challenging; staying happy and healthy helps us maintain a good relationship.

Recent health and well being activities:

During the week, our daily routine starts with one of us doing a dog-walk of at least an hour while the other exercises at home (weight training and yoga). 
We always take a lunch break away from our desks, usually making our lunch fresh each day. In good weather we eat on the terrace or take a picnic to the park.
We usually walk the dog after work too, either around the neighbourhood or in the park. This gives us the opportunity to talk over issues from the day and unwind. 
Thursday nights is a highlight when we attend "Speak English" at a cafe. We help Spanish people learn to speak English, prepare games and quizzes, and have made many good friends in the process.

Success Story:

Mat bought a Fitbit in May 2017. Before that, he wasn't particularly interested in fitness. The competitive nature really appealed to him, and he is regularly at the top of his leaderboard for number of steps against friends and family. He uses the Fitbit to track activity and sleep. His goal is 150 active minutes per day and 7 hours of sleep per night. This has made a huge difference to his health and wellbeing.

"Keeping fit keeps me sane. It gives me an important break from work and allows me to get my thoughts in order." Mat

They also acknowledge the relationship between health and wellbeing, engagement and productivity"

Success Story

My name is Tony King and I'm part of the Maintenance Team at YMCA Cornwall.  When I first started working here, I spotted the Cycle to Work Scheme on a poster so I thought I would enquire about it.

It's very easy to set up; you can get up to £1000 which covers the cost of the bike, a lock, helmet and lights.  All you had to do was go to the bike shop and choose your bike.

Since getting my bike, I've now been cycling for the past 18 months from Hayle (to Penzance) which is 11 miles.  I feel fitter, I've lost weight and it has got me into cycling having been cycling in France and Belgium.  Next year I'm going cycling in Holland.

All in all, it's a good scheme and I would highly recommend it.
