As Covid-19 case numbers surge and businesses are increasingly under pressure to manage through the ever changing 'new normal', we'd like to share with you some of the resources available through the Mutual Benefits Program to help you and your people during these challenging times.
Supporting mental health and wellbeing at work
As we head into 2022 there are many benefits to be had by taking the time to improve workplace safety and culture. By creating a positive workplace culture, employers can benefit from improved staff retention and return to work rates, increased employee morale and greater work efficiency - not to mention saving costs through reduced workers compensation claims and increased productivity.
Consider one of our range of training, tools and resources to help safeguard the mental wellbeing of your people and reduce the risk of psychological injury.
