Building Thriving Workplaces

SuperFriend’s latest resource, Building Thriving Workplaces (released in November 2018), guides employers through the process of creating positive workplace mental health and wellbeing practices and processes.

It focuses on the 5 essential pillars or domains for a thriving workplace: leadership, connectedness, policy, capability and culture and provides practical, cost effective actions that employers can use to improve their organisation in the relevant areas.

Here is Emma Vibert, SuperFriend’s Head of Partner Relationships, on how to chat about the resource with employers:


2019 Indicators of a Thriving Workplace report

Research is a critical part of the work we do, and a key part of our research program is the Indicators of a Thriving Workplace study – this year, analysing insights from over 10,000 Australian workers in a broad range of industries and occupations.

Through this annual study, we have pinpointed actions most likely to help workers and workplaces thrive. We have also highlighted industries and groups of workers most at-risk—giving employers a clear and comprehensive roadmap for intervention.

Key findings from this year’s Report include:
  • The 2019 national ‘thriving workplace’ score is 62.7 out of 100, steady from last year
  • More than half of Australia’s workers have experienced a mental health condition
  • Two in five of these workers believe their workplace caused the condition or made it worse
  • 1 in 5 workers find their job very or extremely stressful
  • Workload and deadlines are the top causes of stress nationally
  • The most common barrier to achieving a thriving workplace is lack of appropriate skills in managers
