In the year of 2020, that took a toll on the mental health of people across the world, many employees chose to end their lives, while many showed their resilience and survived. It has been a challenge for the HR in every organisation to keep employees actively engaged and healthy. BetterUp Inc.’s well being coaching helps clients increase engagement and resilience in the workforce, and now it has a celebrity team member in Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, who has joined as chief impact officer.
BetterUp aims to make a positive impact by providing people the power to lead their lives passionately, purposefully and with clarity.
The organisation focusses on how ‘human flourishing’, ‘peak performance’ and mental fitness are interconnected in the growth journey of people.
Prince Harry, with his dedication to drawing attention to the diverse needs of people across the globe and advocating for mental health initiatives, is just the right person for the position.
As part of the BetterUp executive team, he will only be expanding on what he has already been doing for years now — educating and inspiring people and spreading awareness about the significance of preventative mental fitness and human potential worldwide.
Prince Harry’s time in the military has taught him that building mental resilience is as important as building physical resilience. He is eager to help others “realise their full potential” and “proactively take care of their minds”. He will help further the goal of BetterUp to change the lives of millions for the better, by combining “human connection, leading technology, and behavioural science”. Having experienced a BetterUp coach himself, who advised the Prince and gave him a fresh perspective, Prince Harry will focus on elevating the “global conversation around mental health.”
BetterUp, the coaching provider, is brought to India by People Business Consulting. Through this partnership, Mervyn Raphael, managing partner, People Business Consulting, is confident that ‘clients in Asia will be able to access the coaching services of BetterUp for leadership, performance and mental wellness”.
