Podcast: Why workplace wellness may be Australia’s next royal commission
In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, Jerome Doraisamy is joined by R U OK? non-executive director Graeme Cowan.
Too often, professional services firms view staff wellbeing as “something extra” rather than a matter that is inextricably linked to the function and success of that firm. Jerome and Graeme discuss the mistakes that workplaces make when it comes to looking after staff wellbeing, the fiscal cost of not creating collegiate, hospitable environments, and the responsibility of boards to not only avoid health issues but proactively promote optimal wellness.
