Episode 14: Work that enhances your life – the opportunity for HR, Geoff McDonald, former Global VP, HR at Unilever and Co-founder at Minds@Work
In this episode Geoff shares his inspiring vision for the future of work, a future where work enhances, not diminishes, our lives.
Sharing his experience in catalysing conversations about mental health, Geoff sets out the barriers for why wellbeing has not been seen as a strategic priority, why this must change, and how HR can take the lead.
Geoff inspires us to take a first step in creating an environment that enhances the lives of every employee, prioritising and caring for our own health and wellbeing too.
Here’s a snapshot of a few things we talked about:
