Leaders Building a Culture of Wellbeing


Wellbeing in our workplace has never been more important. Having endured droughts, fires, floods and a pandemic, many Australians are struggling. Returning to the office in ‘our new normal’ after lockdowns have given us a new perspective on life. Health and well-being are now one of the highest priorities for our personal and professional lives. In the workplace, providing well-being resources and support is now an expectation and is critical to attract and retain high quality candidates.

In this online program series, we unpack the legal obligations for leaders, look at the latest research on the mental health impacts of the pandemic and identify the risk factors in our workplace. Looking after ourselves as leaders is just the beginning. Learn how to role-model healthy behaviours, identify the early warning signs when someone is struggling and how to protect well-being for you and your team. We then build self-care toolkits filled with practical strategies for everyday busy people. You will walk away with a well-being and productivity planner to equip you to build and promote a healthy culture of well-being in your workplace.
