Season 2, Episode 6

Rethinking the work environment

with Jo Hooper

The traditional approach to work, with set days, hours, and workplaces has been around for hundreds of years with little deviation or consideration despite how much the world has changed.

Our working hours have got longer and the separation between work and our personal life has got closer, with our jobs often contributing to our sense of self-worth and status, so what’s all this doing to our mental health, and is there another way?

Joining me today is Jo Hooper, founder of Mad & Sad Club who’s mission is to disrupt the world of work and, through coaching and group programs, is helping people manage their mental health and make work work for them.

Sharing her first-hand experience and fantastic thoughts on careers, the workplace and mental health, this conversation with Jo is an eye-opening look at how we trade our time for money, what an alternative way of working can look like, and how you can manage your mental health at work.
