    The Revolutionaries of Wellbeing (ROW) podcast explores how we can build better, stronger workplaces. 
     
    This episode: Yes, you can talk about mental health at work
    In this episode, we’re delighted to be joined by Melissa Doman, US-based Organisational Psychologist, Former Clinical Mental Health Therapist, & Author of Yes, You Can Talk About Mental Health at Work (Here’s Why And How To Do It Really Well). Melissa has presented and consulted for organizations and Fortune 500 companies across industries and around the world, including clients such as Google, Dow Jones, Microsoft, and more. We look at why you should have mental health conversations, and critically, how to do so, as well as dive into some of the key objections you might face in encouraging line managers from having mental health conversations – everything from "I’m not a therapist" to "I don’t want to say the wrong thing".

    This episode: Defining wellbeing: what is it, how do we measure it, and where are we going as a profession?
    In this episode, we are delighted to be joined by Chris Jones, Chief Safety and Wellbeing Officer at Ara Poutama, New Zealand’s Department of Corrections.
    Prior to his role in Corrections, Chris held roles at WorkSafe New Zealand (where he led the Strategy, Guidance and Standards, and Occupational Health teams), Network Rail (as Head of Occupational Health and Wellbeing Strategy) and Nuffield Health (as Head of Physiology).
    Through our discussion, we try to define what wellbeing actually is (and what it isn’t), how we can create the right systems and conditions that allow wellbeing to emerge, and how we can best attempt to quantify those factors in an effort to measure success.
    We also discuss the emergence of wellbeing as a profession, and opportunities to grow and shape it in the coming years.

    Episode 27: Inclusive wellbeing from a Māori worldview

    Episode 27: Inclusive wellbeing from a Māori worldview

    The Revolutionaries of Wellbeing (ROW) podcast explores how we can build better, stronger workplaces. 
     
    This episode: Inclusive wellbeing from a Māori worldview
    Over the next little while, we’ll be exploring diversity and inclusion as part of our podcast series. This episode explores inclusive wellbeing from a Māori worldview.
    When it comes to workplace wellbeing, inclusivity is important. An inclusive, diverse workplace culture fosters a sense of belonging, safety, and purpose for employees, which in turn helps to increase wellbeing and productivity. It improves social connectedness and belonging; and reduces discrimination, prejudice, and harassment. It supports people to bring their whole selves to work.
    Joining us is Stacey Morrison (Te Arawa, Ngai Tahu), one of NZ’s most recognisable broadcasters across radio and TV. She and her husband Scotty Morrison co-wrote ‘Māori at Home’ to help other families use te reo in everyday settings, and Stacey’s first children’s book, ‘My First Words in Māori’, became a number-one bestseller.
    We’ll be exploring some of the cornerstones of wellbeing from this perspective, along with barriers and myths in the workplace and the actions workplaces can take to ensure wellbeing programs are truly inclusive.

    This episode: Managing psychosocial risk at work
    Addressing psychosocial risk factors is an important part of creating a robust wellbeing strategy.  It can be the difference between a wellbeing program that takes a bandaid approach and a wellbeing strategy that gets to the heart of workplace wellbeing issues.
     
    So has the pandemic changed psychosocial risk factors, and what can organisations to do identify and mitigate these risks?
