Ogilvy & Mather New York’s office is not just a stimulating and creative workplace, but its facilities have also been designed with employee fitness and wellbeing in mind. Through Happy Healthy Ogilvy (h2o), the site’s wellness program, employees have access to a medical centre where nurses carry out physical and well-woman exams, write prescriptions and help to manage health conditions. Employees can make use of on-site immunisations and screening programs such as skin cancer and podiatry. They can also visit a counsellor to help deal with any issues including stress at work. To support new mothers returning to the workplace, there are two private lactation rooms with storage fridges.
The site also includes a fitness centre with a fully-equipped gym, rooftop yoga classes and a massage therapist who visits twice a week. During 2012 a new awareness campaign was launched called ‘A Quarter is Change’ to educate staff on how to maintain good health through exercise, diet and preventative healthcare. The garage holds 50 bikes for employees to use for errands, meetings or just to take a spin by the Hudson River.
