Options Goes the Extra Mile for Mental Health and Movember

This year, Options supported Movember on a truly international scale with our New York and London teams raising £4,113 for the cause. With an impressive variety of ‘tashes on show, it’s fair to say our honorary ‘MoBros’ have done themselves and the Movember Foundation proud.

As the ‘biggest challenge to employee wellness’, stress in the workplace is a challenging and often overlooked mental health issue. That is why we’ve taken practical steps to help ensure our team’s physical fitness also extends to their mental wellbeing.

As part of our recently launched initiative to develop and expand our wellbeing strategy, we have invested in OFQUAL accredited Mental Health First Aid training for a number of employees who will serve as Mental Health Champions across various levels of the business. Whether through peer-to-peer mentoring, educational initiatives, work from home flexibility or simply having a flat enough structure to ask for help without judgement, our mission is to create a work culture of empowerment, learning and support.

At Options we have always been serious about creating the best global technology organisation in our business. The need for balance across a number of fronts has been a cornerstone of that strategy. We pride ourselves on our support initiatives; with training and development, travel opportunities and further study options available for all employees. If a culture of empowerment, progression and training is something you’d like to be a part of, discover more about our career opportunities here.
