About this event

Even without a global pandemic, our world is complex.... so now, well, let's just say it's pretty tangled. In response to change and uncertainty we have seen organisations restructure, change tact, and develop new ways of working.

This can be constructive, however, in most cases, instead of simplifying the workplace, we see organisations do the exact opposite. For example, by adding more tasks, procedures and systems without taking any away. Job demands continue to rise whole job roles become less clear, and a reactive approach takes hold. By default, this creates a workplace culture that hinders employee mental health, productivity and even innovation.

The solution is well… simple!

Join this free one-hour webinar held on 3 December 9am AEDT and learn simple strategies to untangle from workplace complexity.

We will share with you our framework to identify root causes of complexity, and grant you access to the Simplify App – your roadmap towards simplification.

Project Simplify, is funded by WorkSafe Victoria and aims to prevent mental health issues at work through effective workplace design. The team are working in partnership with Charles Darwin University, Benny Button, MTM, Geelong Ports and Jemena. Participants of this project are part of a vulnerable population of workers, at the frontline of their industry that get exposed to trauma events, such as network and train controllers, signallers, and delivery drivers.
