Victorian's spend around a third of their time at work which is why mental health and wellbeing strategies have never been more important in our workplaces.

A positive workplace can improve morale, reduce absenteeism and increase productivity, which is good for everyone. 

The WorkSafe WorkWell program is a website and online toolkit offering practical steps to create healthier, more positive workplaces that promote good mental health and prevent mental injury or illness.

The WorkWell program provides resources, actions and steps that can be tailored to your small to medium sized workplace. Find out how businesses are already utilising the toolkit and how you can benefit.

Presented by the WorkWell team.
