From October 6 – 13, R-Group once again took part in Mental Health Week. At R-Group we believe every workplace should be a mentally healthy workplace, and that employees’ mental health should be as important as their physical health and safety. This is why we not only focus our mind during this dedicated week, but spend time throughout the year to consider our mental health, that of those around us, and the impacts that work can have to help avoid them. We work together to dispel the stigma and fear of discrimination that can sometimes prevent people from speaking openly to seek the support they need, through an active commitment to mental health at R-Group.
In 2019 our program featured a scavenger hunt to bring teams together, supply of resources to casual employees working on a FIFO basis and to staff in the office to focus minds to check in and take care, and a wellbeing morning Tea & Talk with funds raised for Beyond Blue. This week built on our other activities during the year which included the formalisation of our Mentally Healthy Workplace Policy and the development and distribution of our FIFO Working Guidance Document with a focus on Mental Health.
Our staff got involved and enjoyed contributing to the week, and we look forward to participating again in 2020!
