Workplace health and wellness is becoming more and more recognised as a critical component of the modern day workplace. Open plan offices, always-on technology, and a multitude of meetings and daily interruptions mean employees are becoming more and more challenged to remain productive. And the lack of productivity can take its toll on employees, with increased levels of stress, anxiety and other mental illness.
In support of promoting productivity and wellness in the workplace, Jabra is proud to sponsor TourXOz 2017.
TourXOz is a cycling event that was designed to build on the pioneering element of Australian culture and create life changing experiences. Cycling through the wilderness of Australia highlights the culture of exploration, isolation, hardship and the value and importance of mateship. Through the ride it raises awareness of mental health illnesses, raises funds in support of the Black Dog Institute (BDI), an organisation that researches, diagnoses and treats mental illnesses, engages with communities at home and on tour and lives BDI’s motto of ‘exercise your mood’.
