Get recognition for your Heads Up progress

Nov 16, 2016

If you're taking action on workplace mental health, you could be eligible for recognition through the Victorian Government's Achievement Program.

Are you taking steps to make your workplace more mentally healthy (or thinking about getting started)? Based in Victoria? 

If you answered 'yes' to both of the above, then you're eligible for the Achievement Program

The Achievement Program is a Victorian Government initiative that gives organisations practical steps and easy-to-use tools and templates to promote health and wellbeing in the workplace.

And if you're using Heads Up resources or information to take action, you're well on your way to achieving certification.

“Healthy employees are more productive and benefit an organisation’s bottom line,” said Anthony Bernardi, Achievement Program manager.

“We offer a comprehensive program which covers supporting the mental health and wellbeing of staff, improving healthy eating, increasing physical activity and more.

“In the mental health space, you could choose to offer flexible work arrangements to help with work-life balance, support staff to manage their workload and job stress or modify work tasks to give employees variety in their role.”

Towards a "healthier, happier and more productive workforce"

“It’s also important for employers to provide staff with accessible information about mental health and wellbeing and encourage them to use local support services when needed," Mr Bernadi said.

“Caring for your staff members will result in a healthier, happier and more productive workforce.”

If you're already using Heads Up to make a positive change in your workplace, we reckon you should get some official recognition for your efforts!
