The chief executive of Unilever, Paul Polman, is responsible for 175,000 employees. Among them, there are of course some who have mental health issues. The company is trying to create a culture where everyone is only one click away from whatever help they might need. Their approach is founded on four pillars of wellbeing: physical, emotional, mental and purposeful.

He says everyone in the company, from senior management down, should buy in to that supportive culture. And he tells us how the ‘oxygen’ of activities outside the office helps him with his work and life.
