“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.”
