About the session

We’ve all heard the common phrases encouraging us to take care of ourselves first before we’re able to take care of others. Put your own oxygen mask on first so to speak. But how much is this considered when it comes to our working lives?

We often see various initiatives happening in different workplaces which support individuals to take care of themselves, which is fantastic, but I believe there is still an untrue perception that we do these at the expense of our companies. Georgina believes that in fact these initiatives actually help us as businesses to be more successful and should be prioritised.

Agile is about people and recognising how unique we all are. This means we all need to take a different approach to taking care of ourselves. I’ll talk through loads of different things you could experiment with, some will work for you and some won’t, it’s about finding what works and running with it (if you’ll pardon the pun.)

Georgina will talk about the various initiatives we have experimented with at OVO to support people to take care of themselves first. This includes mental health, physical health, social, spiritual, environmental and so much more.
