Action highlights


Our Well-being @ Agilent UK initiative is one way we foster our unique One Agilent culture.  Recently, it has included live Mental Health workshops; online health support, plus fun activities such as fitness and smoothie bike challenges.

After a year of COVID-related home working, the Well-being team launched a Sunflower Challenge by sending two packets of seeds to all employees – one to keep and one to pass on.  Then the challenge began! Who had the greenest fingers and could grow the tallest sunflower?!  It brought fun, smiles and light relief after a challenging year!
