In this webinar, Susanna and Lauren will cover:
- How to support mental health in the workplace
- Staying connected despite social distancing requirements
- Starting the conversation in your own workplace, and
- Keeping the conversation going after R U OK? Day passes
Untreated mental health conditions cost Australian workplaces an estimated $10.9 billion per year. Broken down, that’s $4.7 billion in absenteeism, $6.1 billion in presenteeism and $146 million in compensation claims. Supporting mental health in the workplace isn’t just the right thing to do for your people, it’s the right thing to do for your business.
The impact of COVID-19 on businesses is already known, but the impact it will have on mental health won’t be clear for some time. Beyond Blue estimates that their call numbers have increased by between 40 and 60% since March, which is an early indication of the damage done. Ensure your employees are supported by starting the conversation this R U OK? Day.
