The way we work is changing. We spend a third of our lives at work and live in a world in which lifestyle disease is increasing. As we are living and working longer, health and wellbeing is more important than ever. What can our “corporate athletes” learn from elite sports? Recovery is key to both, with stress and fatigue becoming commonplace in offices across the globe.
Lendlease’s Manage Your Energy renewal program uses biofeedback devices from elite sports in the workplace. We have 1,000 days of data from 400 volunteers who have worn bio-feedback devices that measure heartrate variability. This information shows the triggers for stress of daily life and most successful techniques to enhance recovery. All of us want better worker memories, the energy to face new challenges and to bring our best selves to work every day.
Join Lendlease’s Head of Workplace Health and Wellbeing Duncan Young, as he leads an insightful health and mindfulness session perfect for those recovering from a long flight, at Lendlease’s flagship project Barangaroo South.
Duncan Young is the Head of Workplace Health and Wellbeing at leading international property and infrastructure group Lendlease, which has operations in Australia, Asia, Europe and the Americas.
He is a passionate advocate for the positive impact of workplaces on health and is a leading speaker in this area. He focuses on elements of workplace wellbeing that help individuals thrive, not just at work, but in life.
His strategies and programs are based on research, but are grounded in the workplace environment, as this is where we spend most of our waking time. He believes that health is a journey and that small steps can lead to larger incremental change. His latest research on stress and energy renewal uses bio-feedback devices developed in elite sports to help “corporate athletes” perform at their best.
When he is not traveling, Young is based in Sydney at Lendlease’s global headquarters. Sydney’s temperate climate allows him to pursue his twin passions of surfing and ocean-swimming (his personal tools for keeping in-balance).
