Mental health problems contribute to absenteeism, presenteeism and workers compensation claims costing Australian businesses billions of dollars each year. The good news is that for every dollar spent on mental health initiative, like Mental Health First Aid training, there is an average return on investment of $2.30.
This workshop will:
- Introduce participants to the concepts of mental health problems in the workplace and Mental Health First Aid
- Highlight the signs a colleague might notice in a person experiencing a mental health problem
- Present how Mental Health First Aid can contribute to a mentally healthy workplace

The past year has accelerated the development of remote and global teams. As we experience an economic upturn, there are fewer individuals who are unemployed and job-seeking which allows candidates to be selective, testing the employer’s capacity and interest in supporting remote work. As the talent pool narrows, we are seeing a skill shortage or lower supply than demand in certain professions. How can we overcome the fear of hiring in other jurisdictions? In this session, we’ll discuss how leaders can reap the team quality and bottom-line benefits of tapping into the global talent pool.
Employing people with disability means accessing a talent pool that is productive, safe and reliable. In turn, drawing long-term economic and innovation dividends for businesses.
Yet, people with disability are twice as likely to be unemployed as those without disability. How can Australian workplaces unlock this untapped potential to bridge the gap?
The session will highlight:
- The business case for a diverse and inclusive workplace, offering low risk, improved productivity, and high return
- Practical strategies to build disability confidence and develop inclusive practices
- The range of free and expert disability employment supports provided by the Australian Government through JobAccess

There’s so much noise in the health and wellness industry and that noise is rapidly growing, it’s no wonder people get overwhelmed and don’t know where to start when it comes to improving their nutrition. The good news is small simple steps more often add up to big changes over time. Supporting your employees to be their best version of themselves is no longer just a fancy catchphrase, but is a necessary step forward. This workshop will:
- Touch on ‘what is the best diet?’
Look at food on a continuum rather than label it ‘good’ v’s ‘bad’
- Discuss that number on the scale and how to move it in the desired direction and why that’s important for you personally and your employees
How you can support your employees to eat well and move more
