Would you like to create a workplace culture where people thrive and everyone is empowered to achieve their best?

Creating mentally healthy workplaces benefits all stakeholders, and with one in five Australians experiencing mental illness every year, creating mentally health workplaces for all  is one of the most important issues businesses face today.

As discovered by Pricewaterhouse Cooper, for every $1 businesses invest on mental health initiatives, there’s a return of $2.30. A positive workplace environment not only ensures businesses achieve greater profitability, but can also enhance productivity, wellbeing and client outcomes.

When workers believe their workplace supports them to thrive, they’re more likely to be more creative, productive and provide better customer satisfaction than individuals with poor standards of wellbeing at work.

Linda Rowley Consulting delivers a range of evidence-informed interventions and workshops dedicated to making workplaces well places. Because we realise that reaching core business deliverables is much easier in thriving workplaces.

See below an outline of the workshops currently available that can be tailored to suit your needs.
