WayAhead WorkplacesWayAhead Workplaces
WayAhead Workplaces (formerly Workplace Health Promotion Network) was formed in October 2006 in Sydney. Our goal is to improve the health of Australia’s working population. We do this by resourcing and supporting organisations to create healthy workplaces. While mental health issues are key concerns within Australian workplaces, the WayAhead Workplaces aims to resource its members in relation to all aspects of employee wellbeing.
Our members are located across Australia, with our primary networks and meetings in Sydney and Brisbane. We welcome members from any organisation that has an interest in and commitment to workplace health and wellbeing. Find out more about our members and membership tiers and benefits.
Insurance and Care NSW (icare) protects, insures and cares for the people, businesses and assets of NSW.
They provide workers compensation insurance to more than 326,000 public and private sector employers in NSW and their 3.6 million employees. In addition, they insure builders and homeowners, provide treatment and care to people severely injured on NSW roads; and protect more than $193 billion of NSW Government assets, including the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, schools and hospitals.
The data surrounding mental health is alarming and icare recognises its role in supporting their customers to adapt to meet changing employee needs. New mental health initiatives have been introduced to better support employees and employers including an online resource kit to assist managers to build social connections at work and a pilot workshop for employers to help them identify workplace risks that could lead to cases of poor mental health.
They have also partnered with the Black Dog Institute from the University of New South Wales to develop its mental health training program HeadCoach, which gives managers the skills, knowledge and confidence to effectively identify and provide support to employees who are experiencing mental health issues.
