About this webinar
Don’t miss this important webinar: mental health costs Australian workplaces $14 billion per year, making it an urgent work health and safety (WHS) priority for every industry.
In our fast-paced modern society, factors such as constant connectivity with technology, less in-person social interaction and opportunities to hone social skills, the prevalence of drug use among young people, and a growing wealth gap are all contributing to a rise in mental health issues. According to Sane Australia, nearly half of the Australian population (45%) will experience mental illness.
Our economy has shifted from agrarian and industrial to an experience economy, based on the knowledge and skillset of workers. We have undergone a transition from physical labour to emotional labour — that is, a person’s emotional intelligence levels will support them or not, to manage challenging roles in workplace scenarios.
