CONVERSATIONS WITH LUKE MCLEAN, COTTON ON GROUP
What is that one, fixed thing, that everyone has in common, yet most people feel like they never get enough of?
You have probably found yourself wishing for those few extra hours at the end of a long and busy day at work.
Luke Mclean-The Health & Wellbeing Manager at Cotton On, has found ways to turn your work day into a quality experience, saving your precious time through techniques that can build and maximise your own energies. Prepare yourself for an insightful podcast on employee wellness and how the company permeates positive energy throughout its culture.
The purpose at The Cotton On Group is clear; make a positive difference; whether this is achieved by providing people with quality, ethically-sourced clothing, or through their Cotton On foundation- a philanthropic program focusing on empowering local and global communities. But what the public might not be so aware of, are the positive changes that Cotton On has been making in the office. Mclean talks you through some of the onsite facilities, health programs and services that Cotton On provides for their employees at head office; including an Osteopath, a beautician, walking meetings, a café and the bonding benefits of a bring-your-dog to work day. Mclean is focused on aligning the company purpose to the company culture; creating a wellness environment worthy of the 2000 plus hours which he says most of us work every year. This is why Cotton On is creating facilities that can actually make a difference to the time, quality and energy present in an employee’s life.
Mclean, who is also the founder of Eco Life coaching, discusses how he uses eco-psychology, to create a flourishing workplace environment that encourages workers to bring their best energy to the office. Listen to how the foundations of eco-psychology can actually maximise employee energy and help you understand the nature of culture. Also listen and find out how you, as a leader, can consciously start to direct culture, and facilitate a wellness movement at work.
