Staff Wellbeing – “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.

In light of the recent MQ COVID-19 communications and guidelines, we will not be hosting face-to-face wellbeing activities and events at this time. Your wellbeing remains an absolute priority during this period of uncertainty, so we will be making every effort to continue to support you through access to wellbeing resources as follows: 

We will resume our Wellbeing Program and Calendar of events as soon as possible. Keep in mind that you can still book telephone or online consultations with Medibank and Unisuper.

If you have any concerns or ideas please email abetteryouatmq@mq.edu.au. In the meantime look after yourself, keep active and stay safe!

Thank you,

The Wellbeing Team
