Below are some of the team who might work with you:

Alice Cheshire

Alice Cheshire

Head of Well at Work

Alice joined Well at Work in 2019 as Head of Well at Work and leads on the consultancy offering. Prior to joining the team she worked in management consulting where she experienced first hand the impact of a high pressure working environment, as well as seeing friends and colleagues experience a range of mental health problems as a result of long hours, stressful roles and management that didn’t feel confident in handling the topic of mental health. She also saw how the culture was often to deliver at any cost, rather than awareness of the importance of wellbeing for performanceThis experience helped her to understand the importance not just of driving change in how organisations approach workplace wellbeing but in doing so in a way that enables greater employee engagement and productivity.   

Outside of work Alice loves walking her dog Rhubarb with her husband and having games nights with friends and family.
