Strategic Workplace Wellness

Thursday, 15 July 2021 | 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM AEST | Online

Supporting mental health, wellness and resilience through holistic workplace strategies

2020 highlighted the importance of mental health and wellness in the workplace with some unprecedented challenges stemming from COVID-19, bushfires, and droughts. The reduced separation between professional and personal life has led to increased exhaustion and simultaneously exposed the stress that many employees face in balancing demands.

As we navigate the changing boundaries of work and home life, it has become crucial for organisations to support the wellbeing of their employees both in the workplace and beyond.

Join us at the complimentary ‘Strategic Workplace Wellness’ virtual event which will equip attendees with new ideas and strategies on how to prioritise employee wellness, update policies and optimise the benefits of workplace wellbeing.
