This week, I sit down with Kath Blackham, CEO of the revolutionary Australian digital transformation agency VERSA.

She has used VERSA as a platform to move the needle on the things she’s most passionate about—mental health in the workplace, diversity, flexibility and using technology for good. She famously instituted a four-day week, anathema within the crazy-hours digital agency sector. By creating a swathe of people-first rituals in her business, retention has gone up, sick days and mental health issues are down, and profit has spiked.

We talk:

  • The experiments that failed
  • Happiness first
  • Mindful check-ins
  • Three o’clock walkies
  • Building culture remote-first
