How mental wellness is supported at our company:

Mental wellness at McLernon & Co. is important because we know that social media professionals are on the frontlines of the internet and social media, both of which we know impact mental wellness. Therefore, we are proactive about establishing boundaries for our team.

  • Traditional working weeks at our company are limited to 40 hours a week: we set hard boundaries with little to no email or Slack after hours unless it’s a hot matter (which is limited in this business), plus, no weekend communication unless it’s a predetermined weekend project for a client.
  • The amount of time on social media platforms during working hours for any team member is expected to be a maximum of 20 hours/ week.
  • Though our industry does require our team to be online via email and Slack, it doesn’t require us to be on social media 40 hours a week. Our team is encouraged to find opportunities to fulfill their role without having social media tabs open.
  • Our team members have the choice to have monthly 1:1 meetings with our Founder & CEO, Amanda to talk about their personal relationship with social media.
