We’re pleased to announce that Daisy Dupree-Loxton has joined the Quilter team as our new head of wellbeing.

Daisy joins us from The Walt Disney Company where she has been manager of wellbeing and mental health for EMEA since 2019 and helped to embed a mental health programme, including Mental Health First Aiders, in the business.

Prior to this her experience includes HR roles at Kingfisher and EY. Daisy is also a Mental Health First Aid England trained instructor.

Daisy will be responsible for continuing to develop Thrive, Quilter’s employee wellbeing programme that’s been active since the business listed in 2018. Thrive aims to support and enhance the wellbeing of Quilter employees to help them to be healthy in their physical, social, financial, emotional and mental wellbeing. Quilter also has trained mental health first aiders across the business to support colleagues.

At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, Quilter launched a version of Thrive for financial advisers offering them access to online mental health and wellbeing tools and support.

We’re really pleased to bring in someone with Daisy’s experience of working across different sectors, where employees face differing pressures and challenges. The world of work is evolving rapidly, and it has never been more important to protect employee wellbeing and create the right kind of experience for people.

We are passionate about building an inclusive culture where everyone’s contribution is valued, and our people can thrive.” Penny Cole, Quilter HR director

Working in consumer goods and retail has meant that I have seen first-hand the huge impact that workplace stress can have on a person and an organisation. A lack of care for wellbeing or support for employees can be long lasting and deep and that is why I have focused my career on raising awareness and breaking the stigma around these issues.

Quilter is a business that recognises the importance of workplace wellbeing and I’m excited to build on their existing initiatives.” Daisy Dupree-Loxton
