Hi everyone, I’m Michela and I am the Wellbeing Manager at Opticore. I joined the company in September 2021, and it has been a transitional phase for me. My background is in HR however when I saw the job advert for the Resource & Wellbeing Manager (my previous role), I felt as though it had been written for me. So far, I have loved the transition from working in a HR generalist role to homing in on the aspects which I am most passionate about… people, wellbeing, and learning & development.
Following the global COVID-19 pandemic, engaging our employees, and improving their wellbeing has never been more important.
I am passionate about making a positive difference.
Specifically, I want to get the conversation started and raise awareness about all aspects of wellbeing in the workplace. This will help to achieve our goal to create and maintain a psychologically safe environment for all our employees.
Growing, nurturing, and fostering relationships is something that comes naturally to me which closely aligns with my values, purpose, and moral compass. I am excited to be leading the strategic wellbeing roadmap for our organisation as part of my new role as Wellbeing Manager.
In my free time, I love to bake, travel, and explore different countries and cultures – any excuse to practice the languages that I studied at university (Spanish and Italian). I enjoy keeping fit, whether that be in the gym, on the tennis court or on the court as a member of the local women’s netball team.
A healthy mind, a healthy body and an inclusive and supportive workplace are the keys to success.
