In celebration of R U OK? Day, our teams across Melbourne and Sydney for R U OK? Day will connect throughout this week to share personal health and wellbeing tips and strategies, what’s helping us through the current lockdowns and participate in a practice-wide Pictionary tournament, and more.
The highlight event of the week will take place on Friday evening, with Genton Principal Steven Toia sharing his family’s secret and much sought after recipe for fettuccine carbonara in an interactive, team-wide cookalong.
Across Genton, our team are staying entertained by watching Survivor and Miracle Workers; reading Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari and the Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbriath; as well as enjoying seven minutes of peace by playing episodes of Bluey for their little ones.
This year’s R U OK? Day theme, responds to research which found 22% of Australians aren’t reaching out because there hasn’t been an occasion where they felt someone needed their help. With our team, we touched on things to look out for and how each of us has approached the subject with loved ones and had a positive impact. ⠀
