At OLG, we’re a band—of creatives, project managers and problem solvers. But, more importantly, we’re sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, moms and dads, friends, partners. We’re a lot of important things, to a lot of important people, and our single instrument—ourselves—needs to be taken care of, first.
That’s why we launched a wellness program, called ‘Capo.’
This program was collaboratively created—seeking input from our entire team, and structured to adapt to the needs they identify. We also wanted to make sure to address all aspects of wellness: emotional, intellectual, physical, social, environmental, financial and spiritual.
In its pilot year, our wellness program features monthly challenges, quarterly group activities and personal goals (complete with an accountability buddy!). All of these are optional for OLG’ers to participate in. The prizes? Badges—designed by OLG’ers and distributed digitally (for now).
Each month, we set a monthly challenge for OLG’ers to participate in. The challenges are based around a theme, and OLG’ers set their own challenge within that theme for the month. It’s entirely self-monitored—you check whether you accomplished what you set out to do on a daily/weekly basis.

Every quarter, we plan an activity that we all can participate in, which allows us to work on our personal wellbeing and teambuilding. This quarter, we went on a team kayak trip down in Leo. Other activities we’re thinking of in the future include lunch ’n’ learns, volunteering and mobility classes (we sit at our desks a lot!).
