RU Still OK? Building a Mental Health Strategy for Your Workplace

Published 15 October 2021

A month on from World Mental Health Day and RUOK? Day, join Gallagher’s Workplace Risk team to continue the mental health conversation and practically explore what you should consider when building an effective and thriving mental health strategy for your workplace.

Poor mental health costs Australian businesses over $10.9 billion each year and significantly impacts culture, reduces productivity, impairs safety and leads to turnover.

The good news…. organisations that take a proactive and preventative approach to workplace mental health are able to create environments that are safe, resilient and equipped to support the impacts of poor mental health which will affect one in five team members every year. Plus, every dollar spent on proactively addressing mental health in the workplace has been shown to equate to a direct return on investment of 230%. 

Reasons to attend this webinar

  • Learn strategies and tools for identifying risk to psychological safety
  • Using a real-life case study, explore practical and effective interventions for psychological safety
