PositiveParcel has launched a bespoke parcel service for businesses to show employees they are thinking of them, help encourage self-care and prioritise mental wellbeing.

Launched by ex-Liverpool goalkeeper, Chris Kirkland, and entrepreneur, Jack Knowles, the aim is to spread positivity through a box of self-care treats, access to the Headspace app and a positive planner that encourages employees to practise mindfulness.

Over the last 12 months, PositiveParcel says more than 15 million days were lost to workplace stress as workers feel detached from their team, manager and employer as a whole and are working longer hours than ever before.

For millions of workers, the new hybrid model of working and continued restrictions have added to daily stress and anxiety.

Chris Kirkland, Ex Liverpool Goalkeeper and co-founder of PositiveParcel, commented, “Jack and I launched PositiveParcel to give the UK public a simple and thoughtful solution to let someone they care about know they are thinking of them.

“Businesses need to prioritise their employee’s mental health more than ever as millions struggle at home often feeling undervalued and even forgotten.

“I have always been very open about my struggles with mental health and it is so important to share, talk and spread some positivity especially at this time of the year.”

PositiveParcel is also donating a percentage of the profits from every parcel to the NHS and a selection of mental health charities.
