Each year mental ill-health costs Australian businesses over 10 billion dollars. Evidence also shows that businesses that proactively and effectively invest in the wellbeing of their workforce reap significant organisational benefits.
Despite this, psychological safety is one of the most poorly understood organisational risks with few directors or executives tracking the risk, let alone actively managing it.
The landscape is however changing rapidly with Safe Work Australia publishing new guidance in early 2019 that may have implications for executives and directors that fail to address this risk.
This half day workshop will provide practical information and tools to enable them to better manage mental health risks in the workplace. The session will be interactive using a case study and will be suitable for executives and directors from small, medium and large organisations.
The workshop will help participants understand:
- The changing landscape of psychological safety and wellbeing
- Director and executive risks and responsibilities
- How organisations can manage psychosocial safety and wellbeing in an evidence based way
