When Jonny Frostick found out he had a heart attack this month, the first thing that happened to the HSBC Holdings Plc contractor was: “I need to meet my boss tomorrow, this is not good.”
He then decided to pay for the work, his will, and then his wife.
Frostick, who oversees more than 20 employees working on the program, described his death toll from nearly 8 million viruses. The 45-year-old Briton is one of the most recent fundraisers to consider a work ethic that has helped to eradicate the scourge that has erased the lines between office and home multitasking.
“Before I get to the finish line between 5 and 6 p.m., if I’m available on a Friday at 8pm I’m tired, I think I have to get ready for another Monday and I don’t have time, and I started there to work on the weekend,” Frostick said in a telephone conversation at his home. Dorset. “That is my responsibility. I think maybe it was for me that it was a boundary deficit. “
“We all wish Jonathan a speedy recovery,” said HSBC spokeswoman Heidi Ashley. “The response to this topic is a reflection of how this is going on in people’s minds and we urge everyone to prioritize their own health and well-being.”
Frostick said he and his colleagues spend more time on Zoom phones, and working days can last up to 12 hours. Except for long-distance work it also helps, he said.
“We can’t discuss this on the side of the desk or coffee machine, or walk and walk to visit,” he said. “This has happened a lot, not only in my career, but also in all the workplace.”
The contractor took a different financial route than most of his colleagues. Born in Bournemouth, a coastal town in England, he worked for his father’s business and did not earn a bachelor’s degree until he was 29 years old.
After arriving in London, the self-described young man had to learn how to use the subway system, with his first combination with ballet and theater aficionados. Since then, he has undertaken a major undertaking which has included documents at Accenture Plc, JPMorgan Chase & Co, UK government offices and Deutsche Bank AG. He created what they called barriers to adapt to corporate culture.
Frostick, who has three young children, said he had a responsibility to overwork and neglect his health, which had led to heart disease. Now she wants to tell others about her resurrection.
“I have a responsibility to myself and other people,” Frostick said. “This has happened to me, it can happen to you again. You have to change. ”
He wants to drive dialogue around the post-epidemic culture and expects employers to adopt change strategies. In the post, Frostick promised to make changes, including the reduction of Zoom, to redefine his work ethic and to spend more time with family. The message received more than 214,000 likes and made thousands of messages from people who are seriously thinking about their ideas.
Frostick had recovered from his injuries at the hospital where he lived, and he had enough energy to get out of bed for several hours at a time. He enjoys spending time with his wife and children, and eventually he wants to do more on the broken Mercedes. There is some discussion of who is not the general manager or the mentoring profession. Someone told her to write a book.
The idea of writing a green LinkedIn post will come at a critical time in his life and financially, says Frostick. He paid a lot of money in court with his ex-wife for taking care of their daughter.
“My back is against the wall,” he said.
However, he does not criticize HSBC for its complacency and is not always optimistic about the future.
“I don’t think this should reflect where I work, I think it’s relevant in the market, and I think that’s why it affects so many people,” he said. “If the agency doesn’t want to hire me because if I set aside a little bit and review it, then it’s probably not the right place for me to work.”
