VicHealth, SuperFriend and WorkSafe Victoria have formed a collaboration to help workplaces create positive and supportive cultures and environments that enable workers to be more engaged, positive and effective at work.

Victorian workers spend around one third of their time in the workplace and the work environment can provide a positive sense of community and connection with others, as well as build self-esteem and provide recognition and rewards for individual workers and teams.

Approaches such as developing a positive leadership style, designing jobs for mental wellbeing, communicating effectively, recruitment and selection of employees, work-life demands, and supporting and developing employees are all important components of workplace mental wellbeing.
