Workplace Wellbeing

Why Invest in Workplace Wellbeing?

It isn’t just about having a positive and productive workforce – it makes good business sense and impacts your bottom line!

Safe Work Australia reports that workers who are absent from the workplace due to a mental health condition are likely to be away 4 times longer compared to other injuries or conditions. Workers Compensation costs have dramatically increased, and burnout is on the rise.
What would this cost your business?

Aside from experiencing a positive culture and working environment, recent Australian research shows that leaders who express genuine compassion, appreciation and care, results in their people having a statistically higher ability to manage their own wellbeing.
Are you confident your leaders have all the tools to support their people?

Studies have found that when people have higher levels of wellbeing they are:

More Likely To Feel More Engaged
More Likely To Be More Productive
More Likely To Be Satisfied With Their Job
Less Likely To Experience Unhealthy Days
Less Likely To Burn Out
Less Likely To Quit

In addition, workplaces that choose to invest in employee wellbeing and have happy and engaged workers, on average experience:

Fewer Safety Incidents
Lower Absenteeism
Lower Turnover
More Likely To Be Seen As Creative And Innovative
High Customer Ratings
Higher Over Average Shareholder Return

Re-energise Your Team

Do you have everything you need to help your people bring their best self to work?

Leaders have so much on their plate these days and it’s a stressful juggle managing the struggles of their team members as well as their own! Throw in some organisational change and a few economic pressures and the balance is gone…

The Life Balance

Riding the waves of struggle and thrive: Your wellbeing blueprint

The first workshop in our WellAware series is all about helping people discover where they are at on the wellbeing balance and understanding that struggle is normal! In this workshop we will:

Introduce people to the concept of wellbeing, and that moving between thriving and struggling are normal
Share the six elements that shape a person’s wellbeing and how these apply in our work and personal lives
Provide practical tools to improve wellbeing.

Running Low on Energy

Building connections: Optimising your energy at work through strengths

Leaders and their teams are tired. Words like “burnout” and “exhaustion” are getting thrown around and we are trying to rebuild connection and collaboration in a whole new world. The struggle leaders face with reconnecting and rebuilding their teams has never been more real. In this workshop we will:

Highlight factors that contribute to the ‘always on’ way of working, and the risk of burnout without realising
Discover practical ways to increase your energy by using your strengths at work and in life
Encourage you to use a Strengths-Based approach within your team, so that you can utilise peoples’ strengths and energies to create greater engagement.

Resilience is Exhausting

Are you tired of being resilient? Prioritising rest, recovery and wellbeing sustainability

Easier said than done because if was that easy – we’d all be doing it! It’s hard enough prioritising it for ourselves let alone our team of people. Our WellAware program is not just about taking the latest buzzword or research and applying it to everyone, it is about recognising that we are all different and what works for one won’t work for another. In this workshop we will:

Reveal how building resilience over recent years has exhausted Australian workers
Discuss the different types of rest (they may not be what you think!) and how they can look different for each person
Show how to shift your focus from ‘Time Management’ to ‘Energy Management’ to reduce fatigue and risk of burnout.
