 CREATING THRIVING WORKPLACES

Proven strategies to enhance diversity, flexibility and mind/body wellbeing

Featuring some of Australia’s leading experts:

 


 

8.30am   THE POWER OF DIVERSITY & INCLUSION TO TRANSFORM WORKPLACES 

John McCrindle is the General Manager, Property & Network, and Chairperson of the Diversity & Inclusion Council at Caltex. He is widely regarded as a ‘champion for women at Caltex’ and over the last 18 years, he has been instrumental in driving workplace diversity and inclusion and transforming Caltex’s male dominated work culture, to one that is more inclusive and supportive. In this inspiring keynote, John explains why building a culture that supports a more diverse and flexible talent base is not only the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing.  Read more...

10am   WELLBEING THAT WORKS! STRATEGIES FOR THRIVING WORKPLACES

Wellbeing initiatives are often seen as a ‘fluffy add-on’ rather than a strategic imperative. However, new evidence and research tells a very different story. Anna-Louise Bouvier, leading physiotherapist, media commentator and creator of the ABC’s award-winning Happy Body At Work program will share her unique philosophy and discuss ways to create a cohesive, data driven wellbeing platform that you can sell to your decision makers. She will use case studies and survey results from over 15000 employees who have completed the program, to illustrate the benefits to individuals and the ROI for organisations.  Read more...

 


 

11.30am - 1pm   WORKSHOP:  SELLING THE ROI ON WORKPLACE MENTAL HEALTH & WELLBEING 

With the incidence of mental health issues in the corporate community on the rise, WHS and HR professionals are increasingly aware of how crucial it is to have a targeted wellbeing strategy that benefits the mental and physical health of employees. In this interactive Q&A workshop we bring together five leaders to discover how they have overcome challenges and implemented successful wellbeing strategies within their organisations. 

  • Megan Kingham, Manager, Health & Wellbeing, Optus
  • Julia Cohen, Director, Safety Health & Wellbeing, University of Sydney
  • Wendy Carver, CEO, Lifeline, Harbour to Hawkesbury
  • Troy Morgan, MD & CEO, Willows Health Group 
  • Sharon Leadbetter, Workplace Health Promotion Network Coordinator, Mental Health Association

 This practical workshop will equip you with the tools and expertise to craft an integrated wellbeing strategy that delivers maximum impact for minimum budget.
