Outstanding Leader in Wellbeing Governance
An organisation that has demonstrated exceptional leadership in governing for strong wellbeing outcomes. The organisation has a reputation with staff and among sector peers for prioritising the mental health and resilience of its employees and/or volunteers.
WINNER: Youth Projects Team
Youth Projects pride themselves on their workplace wellbeing philosophy, which acknowledges work is just one part of someone’s life. By digging deep to understand their employees’ priorities, barriers and needs as “real people”, the organisation seeks to foster a psychologically safe workplace. This has led to the implementation of measures centred entirely on the individual, including a life-first approach to wellbeing; an organisation-wide Employee Wellbeing Strategy; reinvigorated rewards and recognition programs; a bespoke EAP service based on the forward-thinking Dual Continua Model; embedding wellbeing into WHS governance; the promotion of lived experience; and nurturing a values-aligned culture.
The judges were impressed by the thoughtfulness Youth Projects brought to Wellbeing Governance in their organisation. This dedication was demonstrated in a number of areas, including the commitment to psychological safety, the high engagement with EAP, the value placed on lived experience, the provision of additional wellbeing leave, the board’s understanding of the organisation’s people through activities such as shadowing.
This award is proudly supported by The Wellbeing Hub, an initiative of The Xfactor Collective Foundation.
