The last few years have taken a toll on organisations across the country. The ripple effect of pandemic restrictions, staff shortages, hybrid working and difficulties in recruiting are likely to continue for some time. Next month the Chamber will be hosting a Business Mental Health Workshop to address business burnout. This event will be supported by Business Chamber Queensland and the Queensland Government.
Psychologist, Emma Boucher will facilitate the event. Emma lived on the Mountain for 5 years and has 25 years of experience within the domains of clinical, occupational, and organisational psychology including leadership, RTW, workplace wellbeing, and strategic planning. She is passionate about creating psychologically healthy workspaces through promotion of healthy work practices, management of psychosocial hazards, and early intervention to support those experiencing mental ill health.
Investing in creating a more mentally fit workplace is beneficial to all staff. As a result, employees are more engaged, more motivated, morale will be higher, and staff will be more willing to go above and beyond the requirements of their role. This workshop provides an overview of the signs and symptoms of burnout, the most common causes that lead to fatigue and evidence-based strategies to reduce the incident of burnout for employees. This workshop is designed for leaders of all levels to develop a greater understanding of the impact of burnout within businesses and apply practical solutions to minimise this risk.
The event is on Thursday, September 14, 5:30pm at Shambala Estate and is free for members. As the event will be catered, you are required to have a ticket, scan the QR code.
