Workplace fatalities and injuries tend to dominate the headlines but represent just the tip of the iceberg. The underlying psychosocial risks are as, if not more important for an organisation to identify and measure as these have the greatest impact on both wellbeing and performance. Changes in the nature of work arising from advanced technology, globalisation and a 24/7 culture have the potential to increase the risk of harm to workers, and research shows that New Zealand workers are highly vulnerable to psychosocial work problems. Massey Business School invites you to the latest of their Big Issues in Business public speaking series. The United Nations’ 17 sustainable development goals are shaping the way our businesses are planning for the future. One key aspect of these goals that often receives insufficient attention is social sustainability, including how organisations manage the wellbeing of their workers. The New Zealand Workplace Barometer has gathered data on the experience of staff working across a wide range of New Zealand organisations in relation to psychosocial risks, their performance and wellbeing outcomes. Come and hear: - the latest New Zealand research on psychosocial risks and their financial and human costs - about how changes to the way people work and their trends impact on employee wellbeing and performance - how the effective management of the psychosocial environment can result in positive outcomes for organisations and their staff.
