Building a safe, resilient and productive workplace

Happy and safe work environments are productive workplaces. Unfortunately, too many of us are suffering from stress and burnout, and too often we are getting hurt at work.


Workplace harm is estimated to cost the country $4.4 billion every year and results in lost productivity, increased costs, and impacts employee morale.

The problem is also widespread. In our latest workplace wellbeing survey, 91% of employees reported having experienced negative physical effects because of work at least once in the past three months, while 87% of people have experienced negative emotional impacts due to work.

Clearly, we need to do things differently, but how?

Join us on this Webinar where we explore what you can do to empower your team to create workspaces that value and promote our emotional and physical wellbeing – creating an environment where everyone is happy in their work and where everyone thrives.

This webinar will outline:
- The latest statistics on employee wellbeing.
- Strategies on how to build a positive culture centred around health, safety and wellbeing.
- How to recognise potential issues around physical and emotional wellbeing and what actions to proactively take.
- Practical steps you can take to positively support employees back into work following an emotional or physical injury.
