Workplace Health and Safety Queensland, SuperFriend and WorkCover Queensland, have formed LeadingWell Queensland to support Queensland workplaces to build and maintain mentally healthy workplaces – for every worker, every organisation, every day.
The collaboration is working to create thriving workplaces, as well as positive and supportive work cultures and environments, by focusing on strategic leadership events, access to practical tools and resources, and sharing best practice information and benchmarks.
5R Leading inclusive teams pilot program
The Leading Well collaboration recently funded the University of Queensland to pilot the 5R Leading inclusive team program in Mackay. 5R is a five-step structured workplace intervention designed to build business leadership skills to enhance work group identity, group cohesion and workplace wellbeing. Participants learn about the role of social identity toward shaping group life and gain an understanding of how positive social connections can protect against poor physical and psychological health outcomes. To hear more about the program and participant experience, watch our short film.
