Event description

Description

Poor mental health costs Australian businesses over $10.9 billion each year* and the World Health Organisation predicts that depression will be the greatest public health burden by 2030 globally.

However, Price Waterhouse Coopers found that workplaces who take a proactive and preventative approach are empowered to minimise the potential challenges and costs associated with the poor mental health of their workers. Price Waterhouse Coopers also report that every dollar spent on proactively addressing mental health in the workplace has been shown to equate to a direct return on investment of 230%.

Organisations that empower workers to take responsibility and accountability for their own health and wellbeing significantly increase productivity, enhance workplace culture, and minimise the risk of workplace injuries and the associated costs.
