Like many companies, Magpie is never going to be the same as it was before the pandemic struck in March 2020.
Over the past year, we have been recruiting new team members from all around the world, evolving into a micro-multinational company. For some, working remotely is a dream, removing the stress of commuting and allowing more time to be spent with family and friends. For others, it’s more difficult working without the social office environment.
Our people are the greatest asset to our company, and every day, we aim to ensure that each member of our team feels respected, valued, and listened to. We make sure to ask ourselves: how can we support more? What can we do to help?
We found our answer at the end of October, when we signed up to Spill to provide our colleagues with the opportunity to book confidential therapy sessions via video, chat, or phone. Whether it’s regarding a personal obstacle, business-related problem, or something else entirely, Spill is accessible to everyone in the company – all via Slack or Microsoft Teams. Mental health training is also available for managers and leaders in the business to learn how to better support our team when we need to.
At Magpie, there’s no stigma. And Spill is just one way we are opening up the discussion on mental health.
