Podcast: Why workplace wellness may be Australia’s next royal commission

By Jerome Doraisamy|10 May 2019
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. 


This episode originally aired on The Wellness Daily Show (from Lawyers Weekly's sister title, Wellness Daily).
