Given changing expectations around workplace conditions, especially in terms of psychosocial safety, as a business leader you must now prioritise the impact of the workplace on your employees’ mental health. However, it can be difficult to discern how your employees are coping when they often remain silent until it’s too late. It is impractical to continuously monitor for triggers and changes in behaviour to ensure their wellbeing. With numerous other responsibilities demanding your attention, it is possible for signs indicating that a staff member is struggling to go unnoticed. Although unintentional, the consequences can be substantial.

There is a solution that will help you uncover potential psychosocial risks and show you how to manage them. In The Science of Happy Employees, Dr Brenda Jamnik shares how to:

  • find out what’s really going on with your employees
  • identify the trouble spots in your business
  • understand the new international standards surrounding mental health
  • measure psychosocial safety in your organisation
  • successfully manage your team in the modern work environment
  • learn from people who leave your business
  • find and address problems before they blow up.

Using examples from her decades of work with private organisations, joint ventures, NGOs, and government entities, Dr Brenda will help you uncover the risks that are hindering the development of high-performing teams and show you how to boost your staff satisfaction and business profitability.
