Experts advocate for a scenario where organizations and individuals share responsibility for health and wellbeing. However, employees are not feeling the love and employers are paying a price. How can HR move from a ‘pie in the sky’ mandate towards actionable steps that do not break the bank or consume too much time?

In this session we will explore how to move proactive mental health best practise beyond due diligence and checking of the boxes by finding entry points to start grassroots change moving towards a people centered, psychologically healthy and safe workplace while still working toward more complete sponsorship to implement systems wide change. Even with limited leadership support the status quo can changed.

We’ll review how to leverage small transformations to build evidence and pivot the system. By identifying change points and strategically using data and resources you already have, you can kick-start the evolution of behaviours and attitudes towards a psychologically healthy and safe workplace – without breaking the bank and even more workload. Do what you do but do it differently.

  • Spot strengths and vulnerabilities in mental health best practice in your organization
  • Identify ‘ready’ opportunities for change
  • Build on small changes for wider impact
  • Find pressure points and interventions that will make a difference
  • Make an inventory of what your already have to lever from existing resources

Join us and enhance your understanding of what psychological health and safety looks like day to day. Don’t wait for the top down mandate!
