Adopting the National Standard on Psychological Health and Safety can help your organization with productivity, financial performance, risk management, organizational recruitment and employee retention. However, convincing decision-makers to invest in psychological health and safety is a common challenge for most organizations.  Through a compelling employee story and through a live enactment of how the business case can be presented to senior leaders, this session will equip you with the tools, strategies, and core elements you need to build an effective business case for psychological health and safety in your workplace.

Participants will be able to:

– Identify the strategies and resources that can convince decision makers to invest in psychological health and safety.
