WorkCareFactor helps you understand the importance of mental wellbeing in the workplace, start conversations and find practical solutions.
We know that mentally healthy workplaces keep staff engaged, working safely and feeling happy at work. All that adds up to increased productivity and reduced costs. About half of us will experience a mental health issue at some time in our lives, so improving the emotional and mental wellbeing of your workplace just makes (business) sense.
The Give Where You Live Foundation was funded by WorkSafe’s WorkWell program to lead a WorkWell Learning Network to devise tools and resources to help create mentally healthy and safe workplaces, especially for young employees.
In partnership with Management Governance Australia and Barwon Adolescent Taskforce, they collaborated with 20 local small/medium businesses and service organisations, across industry sectors from across the G21 Region, as well as young workers, to co-design solutions and find practical resources to assist you to implement change.
The WorkCareFactor digital resource is an outcome of this co-design process. It is a tool to understand mental health in the workplace, start conversations, and find practical resources. Hear from real managers and workers from small/medium businesses in our region. Explore their stories, then follow up with easy-to-use hints and tips, plain language policies and templates, ready to apply in your workplace.
Why? Because caring is good for business.
