Work Culture

Employees generally perform better in an environment where they feel accepted and valued. By reviewing the factors that contribute to a mentally healthy workplace, we can achieve this.

“Being a great place to work is the difference between being a good company and a great company.” Brian Kristofek, President and CEO, Upshot

Signs of a mentally healthy workplace

Increasing workloads, rapid technological change, shifting market demands, and a lack of work-life balance. A healthy workplace has many components that fall under communication, workload and trust. Some signs of a mentally healthy workplace include: 

  • a clear understanding of the organisations vision and strategy for all employees at all levels
  • clearly defined individual duties and responsibilities
  • a safe environment where employees feel they can voice their opinions
  • recognition for good work and service
  • well managed workload
  • work - life balance
  • respectful behaviour from all staff, regardless of title
  • established conflict resolution practices
  • professional training and learning opportunities
