I have the great pleasure of leading the Co-op’s wellbeing team and have been evolving the Co-op’s approach to supporting the wellbeing of its c62,000 colleagues across retail, logistics, funeralcare and support functions since the team was first established in 2016. My team of 5 now leads on all Co-op wide wellbeing initiatives and manages all colleague benefits. Connected to our Co-op vision of co-operating for a fairer world, we are on a mission to make things fairer for our Co-op colleagues.
We’ve done a lot in the last 5 years and really have put wellbeing on the map at the Co-op where we’ve seen positive growth, year-on-year, of our colleagues feeling empowered to take control of their own wellbeing using the tools, products and services we provide. Now I want to use my experience to help others evolve their thinking and joining the mad world advisory board feels like a great way to do that.
