  • We have a transparent culture, we hold a 1:1 with HR every quarter to make sure we listen to our employees concerns, doubts and help is offered, including managing energy, nutrition and mental health.
  • We encourage proper breaks as an effective way to re-energize
  • We provide healthy snacks in the office (during the 1st and 2nd lockdown we must confess that some unhealthy snacks were offered, but these were good for the soul — everything in life is a healthy balance).
  • Employees are invited to take part in a variety of physical activities and are encouraged to participate.
  • Special partnership programs with local gyms.
  • We increased our health insurance, making sure it covers all aspects of Covid19.
  • Psychological and emotional help is also on offer.

A global shift is taking place in employee wellness programs due to the pandemic. Taking the lead to create a strategy that promotes a true wellness culture is a must do for a healthy business.
