COVID-19 is having a significant impact on how we interact with others, go about our lives, our work, study and many other aspects of our lives. We know that a combination of stress and uncertainty can have significant and wide-reaching impacts on the mental wellbeing of people in New Zealand.
Workplaces that prioritise mental health have better engagement, reduced absenteeism and higher productivity, while people have improved wellbeing, greater morale and higher job satisfaction. The Five Ways to Wellbeing (Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning, Give) are simple and proven actions that workplaces can introduce to help their people find balance, build resilience and boost mental health and wellbeing.
The Five Ways to Wellbeing can also support workplaces to meet their health and safety obligations to manage risks to mental health and wellbeing. In this toolkit you’ll find a range of fact sheets, tips, tools and templates to make it easy for you to support your teams to build the Five Ways into their day-to-day lives.
