BBC staff offered one-hour online training session on how to drink WATER


BBC staff are being offered a one-hour online training session on how to drink water.

It is among wellness webinars designed to support workers’ mental and physical health during the pandemic, while many are working from home.

The course, titled Hydration, raised eyebrows in the Beeb’s busy newsroom.

One insider said: “We’ve all had a good laugh about it, so I guess it has boosted our mental health.”

But the Beeb shot back: “We are addressing the fact you can take a journalist to water, but you can’t make them drink.”

A description of the course, emailed to staff, says: “Attending this webinar will help you to identify the importance of being fully hydrated and find practical ways to achieve this state every day and to understand how being fully hydrated will improve health, overall wellbeing and performance.”

An insider said: “I guess the main lesson of the course will be to ‘drink some water’, but why it takes a whole hour to say that is a mystery.

Other webinars being offered include tips on healthy eating, exercising at home and balancing work with childcare.
