The impact that presenteeism, absenteeism, injury or illness has on our economy is enormous.
Research shows that untreated mental health conditions cost Australian workplaces approximately $10.9 billion per year:
$4.7 billion in absenteeism
$6.1 billion in presenteeism
$146 million in compensation claims
As people leaders, we’re urged to reduce workplace hazards, but are we able to truly understand the psychosocial hazards of the workplace? And the impact they have on our workforce? And how to manage individual responses to what we may perceive as a minimal risk?
Our training and development programs range from Organisational Health & Wellbeing and Psychosocial Risk Management training to Individual Training focused on developing employee’s psychological resilience. From Tailored Workshops (to cater for specific organisational needs, General Workshops (for professionals from different organisations) to On-line Training (for individual development).
We consistently evaluate our programs and our results to ensure we provide our clients with the best possible solutions.
Most importantly, we are aware of the many challenges that can arise when training ‘soft skills’ in the workplace – especially if audiences are resistant, unmotivated, or uninterested. We have excellent strategies to overcome all such barriers, which is why we can confidently state that our approach is flexible enough to implement effectively in any work environment.
There is a plethora of information out there but it is very difficult to piece it all together, understand how it works and how it affects our workplace. With our experience and knowledge of Occupational Health and Psychological Resilience we have developed a comprehensive, fun and insightful way to educate business managers, human resource, occupational health and safety, workers compensation and return to work managers understand how to build and maintain healthy workplaces and psychologically strong employees.
This is a great opportunity to learn about psychosocial risks at workplace, psychological resilience and its importance in creating engaged, safe and healthy workplaces.
Almost all common workplace issues (e.g. bullying, harassment, dysfunctional teams, increased absenteeism, alcohol and drug abuse, reduced performance, chronic and multiple injuries etc.) occur because employees do not have the skills required to effectively handle the difficult thoughts and feelings that everyone experiences in challenging situations. Thus they end up using self-defeating or harmful strategies to cope. Furthermore, unmotivated and distracted employees are at high risk of injuring themselves at work and creating unsafe working environments for others.
Building a resilient and committed workforce, with appropriate coping mechanisms, will reduce psychological risks and lower the incidence of workplace injuries and conflicts.
