The Week That Was #97…5 peeks behind the week at Working Word

We’ve been out on the rugby pitch, discussing Christmas party taboos with national media, and producing film content showcasing Wales’ best winter walks. Take a peek at our five highlights from the week here…


1. Watch out for these Christmas party taboos if you’re out celebrating tonight     

Mad Friday, Black Friday, however you refer to the last Friday before Christmas, tonight could be a lively one for party-goers across the UK. But if it’s your work Christmas party tonight, you might want to take it easy on the free wine to avoid any clangers which could make returning to work in January slightly uncomfortable. This is something we’ve been talking about with the employment team at Capital Law as we outlined the types of activity which could get you disciplined or fired from the workplace. The story has been covered by the Metro, Shortlist Magazine and the Manchester Evening News. You can read more here.


2. Try time with Principality’s Scrum Home

We embraced the winter weather and headed out onto the rugby pitch for the latest in our series of Scrum Home films for Principality Building Society, this time with Newbridge Youth RFC. We came up with the concept of Scrum Home to show the support provided by Principality as sponsors of Wales’ youth rugby league, as well as incorporating the Society’s brand message around helping people prosper in their home. From finding out what makes the Newbridge Youth team so special, discussing the best win of last season and revealing the team’s biggest supporter, you can watch the results here. If you’re a lifelong rugby fan/player, this will warm the cockles of your heart.


3. Wonderful winter walks for Croeso Cymru

As part of our work with Croeso Cymru, we’ve been researching Wales’ best winter walks to create snappy social media content perfect for the festive season. From Abergwyngregyn to Ynys Llanddwyn, Castell Coch to Dinefwr, all across Wales there’s a range of walks to help you shake off that post-Christmas lunch slump. As well as drafting and scheduling content, we produced a video with a rundown of the best Welsh walks, which you can watch here.


4. Getting interview tips from an Employability Expert

This week we worked with Catherine Jenkins, Employability Partnerships and Programmes Manager at our client Better Jobs, Better Futures, on a feature for the South Wales Evening Post looking at three things you should do and three things you definitely shouldn’t do in an interview, securing a full page feature as a result. You can read more about our client Better Jobs Better Futures and the work they are doing to boost employability across Swansea here.


5. A dose of festive cheer from Ludlow Street Healthcare

We were lucky enough to have a sneak preview of a very special panto performance of Aladdin by staff and service users at Ludlow Street Healthcare this week. The group got together to write and stage the panto as part of a programme of recovery for service users.  As well as helping develop skills and grow confidence, the performance raised money for the children’s hospice charity, Ty Hafan, at the same time. We shared the festive cheer with local media.


And finally…

Nadolig Llawen/Merry Christmas from the team at Working Word, wishing you a very happy festive break and New Year!
