Change workplaces for good.
Workplace health and safety is evolving on a global scale. International bodies, like ISO Standards (45001 and 45003), the International Labour Organization of the United Nations and regional and country jurisdications are looking at new ways to protect mental health and wellbeing at work.
This expansion of H&S from only physical health to include our psychological health is the result of a convergence of research, changing workplace conditions, employee expectations and our understanding of influences and impacts to mental health. A psychologically healthy workplace is not only the absence of harassment, bullying and discrimination, but one where understanding and supporting people are given the same level of attention as financial and business results.
Our most fundamental human needs for thriving are supported by work and workplaces that recognize our strengths, support our growth, learning and success. Our purpose is to help you create a radically-inclusive, collaborative workplace of belonging that supports employee and manager mental health and wellbeing.
Although workplaces have always had psychosocial hazards, in the same way that we have always had physical safety hazards, today we know much more. We have the strongest and growing body of knowledge to support targeted, evidence-based change, improve culture and the lived experience at work. Over the past 10 years, we have built a specialty in psychological health and safety, psychosocial risk, culture development, transformational leadership and change.
Our vision is a world where every person, regardless of industry or geographic location goes home even healthier and more motivated than when they arrived.
Company Guiding Principle: To build internal capacity as we execute assignments so that the client team can continue to evolve their psychological health and safety-based practices, culture development and adaptability to change.
Is your organization built to support human thriving and flourishing at work?
Posing and answering that question openly and honestly is in today's environment the most important and courageous organizational growth and sustainability question. And it is the path to enrich your work in health and safety prevention and protection and culture leadership.
Our Three-Legged Stool of Workplace Psych Health & Safety:
In working with you we first introduce you to the 13 Factors model of the three-legged stool which describes a way for organizations to move beyond the necessary but not sufficient mental health supports and independent DEI efforts. The approach accelerates purpose-driven psychological health and safety culture shifts into action that is focused on the influences, conditions, preventions, protections, controls, systems, decisions and behaviours that create an evidence-based, ISO 45003 aligned solution within your context and your starting point.
Each leg represents one of three mutually supportive core organizational priorities and strategies. They are strongly linked, but not interchangeable. Each has evidence-based risk factors, interventions, controls, prevention, supports and protections to manage.
Combining psychological health and safety management , psychological safety culture development, human-centred supports and initiatives in a way that matches your context will create a sustainable environment that allows each person to bring their unique strengths to work, inclusion, create improved psychological flexibility toward change, deepen experiences of fairness, team productivity, trust and engagement. This approach is also a building block for organizations that want to increase adaptability and innovation.
Whether you are looking at your existing strategy and initiatives, a risk assessment, have data that identifies a current challenge or are considering an intervention and want to validate that it-will-do-what-you-want-it-to-do, we can help.
What is better than science?
Recent, uniquely blended, correlated and applied science!
Science and insights for change matched to your work context!
And science further substantiated and embedded in National Jurisdictional Standards and IS0 (45001:2018 and 45003:2021) guidelines.
We create a client-service team environment that is human-first and human-centred and psychologically-safe for every person that we work with in your organization. This foundational philosophy is central to our work.
What does it look like? You will see openness and a lot of curiosity. You will see an appreciation of the essential and basic human need to be seen, heard, understood, respected and included. Psychological safety and all it represents is the backbone of our business and our business relationships. At the same time that we focus on the assignment goals, we focus on living our values of care and compassion, respect and dignity with every person in the process.
We have built all of our services on a combination of data, science and deep subject matter knowledge, skill and experience. 13 FACTORS process of assessment, analysis, recommendations for change, intervention or restoration, training and consulting is always trauma-informed, evidence-based and science-backed.
