To find out why Lendlease is the place for them, this week, we take five minutes out to discuss health and wellbeing with:
Assistant Commercial Manager
I’VE WORKED AT LENDLEASE FOR…
Almost a year and a half, on our Devonshire Square project in central London. Working on the project, no two days are the same and I’m involved in the commercial aspects of the project, from payments to managing sub-contractor accounts.
TO ME, WELLBEING MEANS…
Having a good overall state of health and happiness and being content with your day-to-day life – both physically and mentally. It’s something that directly impacts both our personal and work life which is why I believe it is so important to enhance our own and others wellbeing.
FROM MY EXPERIENCE…
Wellbeing is placed up there with health and safety at Lendlease and I think that really makes us stand out from other employers in the industry. There’s genuine care about how we feel and that’s evident through the initiatives offered.
I’m a Lendlease-trained Mental Health First Aider and it’s been one of the most beneficial courses I’ve ever done. I think mental health is still not talked about as openly in the construction industry as it should be. Having friends who have experienced poor mental health, I jumped at the chance to be given the tools to help someone in that situation.
FOR MY LAST WELLBEING DAY…
I took a spontaneous trip to Cambridge with my boyfriend. It was great to have that extra day to take some time for myself.
WHAT MAKES ME SMILE IS…
Spending time with family and friends. I think taking time for yourself can really help clear the mind and if it’s been a stressful day, I find exercise a good way to let off steam – I also like the odd pamper day.
LENDLEASE IS THE PLACE FOR ME BECAUSE…
There is such an encouraging and supportive culture here – not only for my career, but for me as a person. I feel that I’m truly valued and part of the business.
