Jenny is passionate about making the working environment one in which anybody can thrive, regardless of their background.
Jim has been an entrepreneur for 20 years, with ventures ranging from motorcycles to hotels to recruitment. By 2017 he had lost 5 friends to suicide, and he and his wife were trying to help a very close friend with extreme anxiety and depression. This brought home the difficulty of helping someone with high levels of distress, and the need to help people earlier. We were ultimately unsuccessful.
That began a quest to find a way to help people before they have a diagnosable problem, or those with moderate mental health. That’s around 60% of the population in western economies. And from there, with the help of a bearded Italian machine learning expert called Alfredo, BetterSpace was born. A wellbeing marketplace built around the six pillars of mental health – sleep, exercise, social connections, helping others, meaningful activities and stress management – with the aim of helping large populations of employees.
BetterSpace is now being used by progressive employers such as Linklaters and Accenture in the UK, with 71% reporting an improvement in their mental health.
