Creating a mentally healthy workplace needs high-quality data on risks, hazards, resources and controls that highlights the areas for action, what’s working and where your organisation needs to do more work.
This guide outlines the benefits of measuring workplace mental health and provides practical guidance on the types of data you can use, and how to use that data to identify actions, make the case for change and monitor progress. You will find example indicators and tips on:
keeping it manageable
using existing data
gathering additional data
avoiding common pitfalls (e.g. survey fatigue, not relying on single indicators).
The guide was developed through the National Workplace Initiative.
