R U OK? at Work Program
The R U OK? at Work program is designed to be used in any workplace at any level of management – from general staff through to executives. The program can be incorporated into an existing health and wellbeing strategy or used as a standalone program. The resources are also useful for individuals wanting advice on how to initiate a conversation with their boss, colleague or employee.
The program aims to:
- Educate employees, managers and executives about how to manage difficult situations
- Empower employees, managers and executives to say ‘I’m not ok’ when struggling with a problem, big or small
- Help people respond appropriately to a friend, colleague or member of staff who says, ‘I’m not ok.’
- Educate people about how and where to access help in the workplace
- Cultivate a positive workplace community and reduce workplace stress
