Thriving People, Thriving Workscapes

Each September in Australia we have R U OK? Day  The mission of RU OK? is to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with anyone who may be struggling with life. The initiative does a fabulous job raising awareness around mental health and helping people understand that you don’t need to be an expert to reach out – just a good friend and a great listener.
