Healthy employees are happier, more productive, take fewer days off work, are more engaged with the company and brand and therefore more likely to consistently deliver great ‘on brand’ experiences. Leading to greater business performance.
We recently worked with Rachel Beven, to revitalise the Sumo brand, aligning corporate, customer and employer brands and reinstating wellness at the heart of the business.
This work was featured in The Healthy Brand Company's blog.
Ever felt that the climate problem is too big an issue for you to contribute to? Well, one thing you can do on a daily basis that will add up to a big impact is the food choices you make. Simple swaps, like substituting a beef burger for a veggie burger can add up to big savings for the planet.
What a year! 12 months ago today, I had just arrived and landed in Sydney unsure of what the future held. We'd pushed ourselves out of our comfort zone and headed to Australia for an adventure, and that's certainly what we've had! A year goes very quickly, but a lot happens in 12 months. I've learnt so much by living in a new country (Australia), working in a new industry (food/health/wellness) and learning new business models. It has been awesome...not a walk in the park for sure, but I am super grateful for your support during this big year of transition. Whatever you do in your life, the people around you always make the biggest difference. To celebrate my first 12 months in Australia, I have captured three of the bigger lessons I've learnt as part of the very first episode of The Raw Energy Show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jvEbD8D3yo&t=71s
