    Meet John - Feeling stressed, I did something about it…

    With the ever-increasing awareness of mental health among young people, I believe, no matter what age you are, having a healthy mental balance is vital in this modern age and personally, for me, is becoming more and more important in my life.

    We believe in rewarding our people in ways which matter to them

    We know that when people look for new roles, base salary is one of the really important things they look at. Maybe also bonus or a commission payment and that’s it, the total package. Or is it?

    A fond farewell

    When thinking about leaving, my initial thoughts are sadness. I absolutely love my job here at The Lab.  Since joining O2 four years ago, I’ve learnt more than I ever could have imagined. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with some world-class professionals. Without their mentorship I wouldn’t be where I am today; so to those people, I thank you.

    Week in the life of O2 Territory Leader – Day 4

    Firstly I’d like to point out that my diet went super well yesterday….. not. So last night I arrived at my hotel at around 7pm, in Northampton, on the way there from Slough, I nipped into the Paddington shop and bought my daughter a pop-up book of London and sent her a little message from Paddington Bear for bedtime.  If you’ve not seen the film, it’s a must! The service in the store was fantastic and I felt like I had a personal experience that counted.

    Day in the life of O2 Territory Leader - Day 2

    Today I am heading to our Head Office in Slough. I am on the 6.57am train to London Euston, then the tube to Paddington and then another train to Slough, then I will hopefully jump on one of the free shuttle buses from the station, all with my laptop bag and case in tow. I actually love getting the train as it gives me two hours on my laptop as I still need to work through my to do list so  nice to have the time to concentrate on it.

    Week in the life of O2 Territory Leader - Day 1

    Two questions I often get asked in my role as Territory Leader are. “How do you juggle being a mum and working as a TL” and “What does your role look like on a Weekly basis” So this got me thinking … I decided to do a 5 day blog on the “week in the life of” a Territory Leader. I hope you can see from my blogs that you can juggle it all and also that it gives you a greater understanding of my role.

    Meet John Butcher – 14 Week Paternity Policy

    The O2 paternity policy has had a massive impact on my family. Instead of just spending 2 weeks with my newborn, where it’s just a whirlwind of visitors and nappy changes, I'm enjoying 14 weeks with my wife, daughter, and new son.
