ACTION REQUIRED 2023: Psychosocial Hazards + Respect@Work

New legislation across Australia has made imperative for organisations to identify and mitigate psychosocial risks in the workplace (WHS).  Lack of clarity around roles and responsibilities, poor change management and communication, job demands, bullying and harassment are all identified psychosocial hazards. In addition Respect@Work laws create an additional onus on leaders to “create positive work environments” – this is more than risk management. This is about communication, change management, processes, procedures and cultural norms.

There is an increase in scrutiny and increased liability for boards, executive management and team leaders who do not comply.  Understand your obligations and build a plan of action.

Board and Organisational Psychosocial Hazards

Better insights. Evidence based. Confident leaders. The difference is doing it “right”.
Done right, leaders can realise greater profits by focusing on a “people first strategy”. With increased scrutiny from government, employees, customers and community, businesses can no longer be complacent about workplace environments, psychological safety and cultural norms.
