“Over the past two years, I’ve been a member of the Macquarie Choir in London. This has allowed me to expand my network and build some long-term friendships. I’ve also noticed that singing outside of the office has made me more comfortable with public speaking in the office. The choir is a great opportunity to get off the desk once a week and try something completely different to my day job.”
"Macquarie cares about my wellness and provides access to yoga and pilates lessons, as well as ‘in-house’ massages. This makes a huge difference to my health and wellbeing and my ability to give my best to Macquarie. As part of our wellness initiative I have also been to some very insightful talks that have better equipped me to deal with challenges in the workplace such as coping with stress and dealing with chronic illness.”
“A wellbeing ambassador is all about being there to listen if someone wants to talk. Talking about and sharing a problem - even if it’s just to bounce an idea off someone in confidence - can be very helpful. It’s not necessarily about resolving issues, but encouraging people to look at problems from a different perspective. I’m proud to be a wellbeing ambassador and have been privileged to provide another point of view that I hope has helped to provide some clarity.”
