Getting started

We often hear that the hardest part of embarking on a journey towards a thriving, mentally healthy workplace is knowing where to start.

The sheer amount of information out there can be overwhelming — even for those who do have a clear idea of what they want to achieve.

No workplace can become truly thriving in a hurry, and maintaining this long term takes a genuine, ongoing, organisation-wide commitment.

The most important thing to do is to start somewhere — anywhere — and build from there!

SuperFriend’s workplace wellbeing consultants are here to help to identify your unique organisation’s needs and where to focus your efforts to give you your best start – wherever you are on the journey.

“We have seen a positive impact since staff undertook SuperFriend’s training. People have started to connect. There’s been a shift towards a psychologically safe workplace culture – people understand that health and wellbeing is something that we are serious about. That’s it OK to ask for help and the importance of looking out for others.”

— Lisa D’Andrea, HR Manager Hansen Yuncken

“Over 1000 of our members have attended the Retiring Well program. Previously, people didn’t give much consideration to the psychological aspects of retirement but this program gets people talking about it in their workplace and at home. It is really worthwhile. The feedback from members is always really positive: attendees talk about how interesting it was and that it’s great to see we’re not just looking at the financial side of retirement.”

— Josephine Casabene, Client Management Officer at Equip

“SuperFriend supported our specific training needs and objectives. They were really keen to understand our business, and were absolutely fantastic to work with – very supportive and engaging.”
