Mental health is an issue that affects people around the world, and their views on it vary. Each culture has its own way to deal with mental illness so changing mental well-being content for each individual group would be necessary in order not only to recognize but also to address these issues properly. It can be said that no matter what the subject is, localising the content is the key to global success.
“We believe that mental health is a need is not a trend. It's not something that is just happening now. It's something that has happened always that now we are more vocal than ever on that and that it happens to anyone sitting in any country, anywhere.”
“I think that's the keynote on remote is not only about having a colleague and talking about work, it's about going beyond and just making these connections that you just feel part of it naturally.”
“Growth is, of course, the reaching to as many people or as many companies so they can offer our services to employees as possible, as well as also generating like let's say also the business for the company to make it sustainable long term.”
“We continuously create content on sleep, anxiety, stress, and these ones we do on an intimate level, but then our local partners will always keep the local touch. So we have these two things because as you said, being a global company and having tools to provide content to our users could be extremely complex if we will only do it by market. We have global topics and then detail injections of content that will be relevant.”
“When you feel this deep connection with what the company you're working for thus it's just so easy to wake up in the morning. And just start your date. And the team also like it's not only about the brand, but the team like we have so much time.”
