Community Spirit to Workplace Champions – R U OK?
R U OK? has released new resources to encourage more business leaders, owners and employees to build an R U OK? Culture in their workplace so that everyone feels safe, supported and encouraged.
The resources, including the R U OK? Workplace Champions Guide, promote peer-to-peer support and regular meaningful conversations amongst colleagues in the workplace.
For an R U OK? conversation to be meaningful it must be authentic and involve a level of trust between people who know each other and are familiar with each other’s routines and behaviours. Building an R U OK? Culture can help establish that trust and increase a sense of belonging and connection in your workplace.
Be an R U OK? Workplace Champion. Build an R U OK? Culture.2022
R U OK? recognises that workplace initiatives are often effective when driven by ‘Champions’ within the workplace.
Champions are the ‘beating heart’ of change and can be the motivating force to drive a commitment to an R U OK? Culture within a workplace.
R U OK resources, including a Workplace Champions Guide, will provide a framework to help R U OK? Workplace Champions tailor R U OK? messaging and activities for their workplace and build an R U OK? Culture.
Community Spirit 2021
2021 has been tough for many, but it has also highlighted once again the importance of staying connected and being there for one another.
Every day Australians share the positive impact an R U OK? conversation has had in their life or how by asking ‘are you OK?’, they’ve helped someone in their world find support. These stories remind us that a conversation really can change a life.
Our R U OK? in 2021 video highlights some of the wonderful work being done by our community of supporters who are helping us create a world of connection and belonging.
If you or someone you know needs some extra support, at any time of day or night, call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
