A Better You at MQ
At Macquarie, we're committed to creating a happy and healthy workplace that values inclusivity and work-life balance. Throughout the year we will be offering a number of different lunchtime seminars and activities as part of our ongoing staff wellbeing program – A Better You at MQ. We aim to support you in maximising your personal, physical and mental wellbeing.
1 - 30 September 2020
We are delighted to be able to offer Wellbeing Month to staff again this year, albeit in a slightly different format. This year has presented us with unprecedented challenges. COVID-19 has tested our resilience and our ability to adapt and change to a new way of working and a ‘new world’. Wellbeing Month will be offered in a blended approach of online seminars and face-to-face events and activities. Safe social distancing practices will be adhered to.
Take advantage of free informative lunchtime sessions, campus walks, exercise classes, indoor plant workshops, massages, an art class and so much more.
Additional resources and activities
Your wellbeing remains an absolute priority during this period of uncertainty. We're making every effort to continue to support you and provide you with additional wellbeing resources.
