In this session, Fiona shared Australia Post’s journey in creating a psychologically safe workplace, which starts by taking reasonable efforts to protect the mental health and wellbeing of employees.

High levels of psychosocial risk in the work environment have the potential to generate employee mental health concerns, and/or exacerbate existing conditions. The identification and mitigation of psychosocial risks, coupled with the provision of a supportive and healthy workplace has the ability to reduce the onset, severity, impact, and duration of mental health concerns, as well as produce happier and more productive employees.
