Mental Health and Wellbeing | Impacts of change on mental health and wellbeing.

Held on May 9th, 9 am – 1.30 pm

In the dynamic landscape of New Zealand's workforce, HR has faced (and continues to face) a myriad of unique needs and challenges. As stewards of employee wellbeing, you're tasked with navigating the impacts of change on mental health and wellbeing, while also contending with the intricate web of legal frameworks that shape our professional landscape and managing the performance of your people.

Today, we invite you to dive deep into the unique needs and challenges faced by HR in New Zealand, embarking on a quest to uncover insights that will help in your approach to mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.

Our experts covered:

  • A view on the current mental health and wellbeing landscape.
  • A look into ‘performance care’ - what it is, and it's importance in prioritizing it.
  • A look into navigating change, the psychology behind it, and exploring strategies that can be used to support change and protect well-being.
  • Advise the essential practices HR professionals must adopt to sustain themselves in a career that demands so much while offering immense rewards.
  • Delved into Mental Health and Well-being from a Legal Perspective – looking at recent case law and HR’s obligations 
  • and we also heard from our recent NZ HR Award Wellness Programme winners - A Case study - what it is, why it won and what impact it has had.
