There’s an app for everything. There’s an app for counting sheep and an app for licking icicles. There are apps that let you pop virtual pimples and spin off rolls of toilet paper.

There are also apps promising to change your life for the better, namely by helping you lose weight. Quite a number of them, actually. Mostly, the idea seems to be that you sign-up with your start-weight and then you can build a weight-loss plan, design a fitness regime or bet on yourself to lose weight.

Recently, the Robertson Cooper team took a day out of the office to collect our thoughts, connect the dots across the business and play the drums. Marketing Executive and Good Day At Work Content Editor, Tori Wastnedge, dishes the dirt on what it’s like to work for a wellbeing company.

My first day as Marketing Executive at Robertson Cooper was three months ago, and also happened to fall on “RC Day”. I remember thinking I’d picked a brilliant time to start – it was a whole day dedicated to talking about the company’s mission, new ideas, projects and clients, and communicating what’s going on in our day-to-days.
