Prince Harry has joined the corporate world as impact director at BetterUp Inc.
The financial conditions of his work were not disclosed.
San Francisco-based BetterUp works with employees at companies like Mars, AB InBev and LinkedIn in coaching and mental health services.
BetterUp CEO Alexi Robichaux said the Duke of Sussex is a good choice for the company because of “its model of inspiration and impact through action”.
Robichaux cited Harry’s efforts to found the Invictus Games, which give sick and wounded military and veterans the opportunity to compete in sports, and to found Sentebale, an Africa-based charity that supports young people living with HIV. .
Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, have been working to disassociate their lives from the British royal family and live in California. They signed an agreement to create content for Netflix and are creating podcasts for Spotify.
In a blog post, Harry said he joins BetterUp because he believes in the company’s mission to be proactive about mental health.
“Being in tune with your mind and having a support structure around you are key to finding your own version of maximum performance,” he wrote. – AP
