Professional guidance

Our certified psychologists and lifestyle experts believe that the key to sustainable change is daily practice. Just as we sleep, eat, drink water and brush our teeth daily; it’s also crucial for our psyche to be cared for every day.

We want to make sure that everybody is supported mentally and emotionally. By partnering with OpenUp we provide 24/7 coaching by certified psychologists and lifestyle experts.

“By working with OpenUp, we encourage our employees to dare to open up. After all, it helps you grow as an individual. It is part of your personal development.”

Chris Byrne, head of e-commerce Bestseller

Together with OpenUp we help colleagues to talk about their challenges. Opening up turns out to be crucial in finding a healthy work-life balance.
