How Foundations helped O2 support employee mental wellbeing

Covid-19 presented O2 (and employers everywhere) with a unique challenge: supporting their employees from a distance.


Telecommunications giant O2 has a well-deserved reputation as a great place to work. Its company culture has a strong focus on promoting work/life balance and supporting employees’ mental wellbeing. Foundations and O2 had already begun a pilot when COVID-19 escalated, prompting a roll-out to the entire company.

Working together on effective comms, we saw a very engaged workforce promoting Foundations to their peers in the workplace.Thousands of activities were accessed, helping users sleep, relax and deal with day-to-day stress.

Highlights include:

25% of active users used the app twice weekly.
