Home Office Cabin Fever
But there is a downside which those who have never worked from home for extended periods might not realise – and that is “Home Office Cabin Fever”. When you start your day and only walk a few steps to a table where you set up your laptop, only have virtual meetings with no actual face to face interaction, and with no distinct dividing line between work time and leisure time, the dreaded cabin fever can set in.
The Solution – Outdoors
Socialising is a basic human need, and a change of scenery to clear one’s mind after sitting down for lengthy periods is a necessity to maintaining one’s productivity. One option is to go to a coffee shop, a mall or restaurant, but we also need to breathe in some outdoor fresh air and do some physical exercise to get those endorphins released. What better place to go than a sports club that offers a safe outdoor environment with a variety of sports activities and where friendships can be forged.
The Wanderers Club
This is where The Wanderers Club steps in. It is central and easily accessible as it is surrounded by a residential and business community, and is affordable. The Club offers numerous benefits to organisations who care for the holistic wellbeing of their employees and want to prevent that cabin fever that might lead to burnout.
Your Staff Joining Wanderers Club
If ten or more employees from the same company join The Wanderers Club as a group they will have access to the recently revamped Chariots pub and deli, and other auxiliary bars, where they can receive a 10% discount on food and beverages. There are 14 sports sections to choose from ranging from Bowls, Badminton, Basketball, Badminton, Bowls, Cricket, Hockey, Gymnastics, Karate, Rugby, Road Running, Squash, Snooker, Junior Soccer, Tennis, and Touch Rugby.
Whether a seasoned sportsman or totally new to any sport, you will be welcomed and can receive coaching if necessary. The Club has extensive well-maintained sporting facilities and beautiful gardens where one can relax and recharge after being cooped up in an office or have been working from home. The Club is easily accessible to anyone from Johannesburg, Sandton and Randburg and has safe parking.
An added advantage is that the Protea Hotel Wanderers is right next door and will be managing the Club’s conferencing facilities in the near future. So it will be ideal for corporates which have employees or visitors coming from afar.
