Guidance on meeting obligations to prevent harm, and harnessing opportunities to thrive.

Making sense of the CEO’s role

Workplace mental health and wellbeing is an area of increasing focus for CEOs. But many are unsure what they should be doing in this space.

To support them, the Forum commissioned a framework CEOs and organisations can use to make sense of their role in managing mental health and wellbeing at work.

The guide was developed by Dr Hillary Bennett of Leading Safety. 

The key lesson from the guide is that to unlock a workforce’s true potential, a mental health and wellbeing strategy should aim to both protect workers from harm, and include activities to foster and support wellbeing.

This requires both proactive and reactive interventions.
