About this resource

Having a mentally healthy workplace is just as important for small businesses and sole traders as it is for larger organisations. Measuring how mentally healthy your workplace doesn’t need to be hard. You probably already collect much of the data you need.

This guide outlines a simple process for measuring workplace mental health:

  • Identify your goals, so you know what data you need.
  • Create a data plan.
  • Use existing data sources as much as possible.
  • Interpret the data.

It outlines the benefits of measuring workplace mental health, and contains example indicators and data sources, and tips for success.

The guide was developed through the National Workplace Initiative.
