How healthy is your workplace?
What is a healthy workplace?
A Healthy Workplace is one where Workplace Health and Safety measures are continually revised and implemented, where people policies that support wellbeing and resilience are implemented and supported and a positive and inclusive workplace culture is supported, encouraged, and led by Senior Management.
What is an unhealthy workplace?
An Unhealthy or Toxic Workplace is one where the workplace behaviours make it unpleasant to work in.
Signs of an unhealthy workplace include:
- A lack of praise and positive feedback from management
- Lack of consultation and in many cases even secrecy from management
- Gossip and rumours spread throughout the workplace
- Walking on eggshells around managers
- Bullying and Harassment in the workplace and no action taken by Management
An unhealthy workplace can affect morale and create impacts to your mental health, self confidence and affect the ability in doing your job well.
