Workplace wellbeing: HR need to step up
The Wellbeing Lab and the Australian HR Institute are releasing a report titled The State Of Wellbeing in Australian Workplaces. The report is part of a multi-year study that explores how business leaders and HR teams can enable workplace conversations around thriving and struggle, and creating an environment of psychological safety.
One of the study findings reveals that HR is perceived as a last resort for employees seeking helpful advice when they are stressed and struggling in the workplace. The report also explores recent data in relation to the impact of COVID-19 and bushfires on a representative sample of Australian workers.
