“What is the role of workplace wellbeing when the way we work and where we work is changing?”
Over half a million workers in NSW have poor mental health. Numbers like that make it clear why workplace mental health is a key area of focus not just for the NSW Mental Health Commission, but for the NSW Government, businesses, organisations and individuals.
Here’s a selection of the feedback from members that answers the question above.
The industry is very fortunate to have such a passionate advocate for healthy workplaces, and we look forward to continuing to support WayAhead Workplaces and your wonderful work in the year ahead.
