Although just over 50% of workers in this industry feel their workplace is highly supportive of worker’s mental health and wellbeing, there has been a decline from 2020 to 2021 in the leadership and culture indexes. Increases in the connectedness, capability and policy indexes speak to a strong workforce of individuals.
One role of leadership is to set the organisation’s cultural tone, so this might be an opportune moment for a quick-win and to invest some time into leadership capabilities. This may be across difficult conversations, change management, or supportive leadership strategies that build and strengthen a positive work culture where workers feel valued and have clarity in the tasks they are expected to complete.
If you’re unsure where to start and would like to understand more about positive and strong leadership read our blog, The Art of Leadership or consider our positive leadership course.
