February 2024

Relationships Australia Tasmania invites the Tasmanian media to attend the launch of its new Organisation Wellbeing Service.

The Organisation Wellbeing Service includes a diverse range of offerings above and beyond the standard Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Services, including Organisation Wellness Assessments, Self-Care Workshops, Mental Health First Aid, Team Dynamics, Conflict Resolution and Mediation, Counselling, Mindfulness Programs, Psychological Safety and Wellbeing solutions.

Relationships Australia Tasmania CEO Dr Michael Kelly said the launch will showcase how the new service supports the wellbeing and psychological safety of employees, teams and leaders in Tasmanian businesses and organisations.

“With expert practitioners and administrators across Tasmania, Relationships Australia Tasmania believes that employee assistance programs need to be more than just a poster on the wall with a phone number to call only when there is an employee in crisis,” Dr Kelly said.

“Tasmanian employees deserve more than an EAP service that just sits back and waits for a call.

“Tasmanian businesses that really care about their employees are telling us that they are looking for a locally based mental health partner that does more to support the mental wellbeing and psychological safety of their employees.

“This proactive approach to supporting people at work comes at a time when many Tasmanians are experiencing a range of challenges. The long-term impact of Covid really affected our mental health, and now, with the cost of living so high, housing, on top of the pressures of caring for our kids and aging parents, some Tasmanians are doing it tough.

“It’s a lot of pressure and organisations and their employees are getting burnt out. We know we can help in a big way, and that properly supported employees, teams and leaders, lead to better outcomes for everyone.”

WHAT: Launch of Relationships Australia Tasmania Organisation Wellbeing Service

WHERE:  Henry Jones Hotel Packing Room.

WHEN: 10.30am, Wednesday, February 21

Special Note: Dr Michael Kelly will be available for media interview.

Dr Kelly said with collaboration at its core, Relationships Australia Tasmania’s approach begins with a really good understanding of an organisations culture, values, people, and goals.

“This process creates a unique Organisation Wellbeing Plan that includes a range of services that are designed around the specific needs of the organisation and its people.

“Our goal is to not only meet the current needs of organisations but also to provide services that evolve alongside them. We are 100% committed to serving Tasmanians and to forging a path towards workplaces that appreciate the importance of employee wellbeing and how to foster a culture of psychological safety, resilience, engagement, and sustained success.”

Organisations interested in these services can contact Relationships Australia Tasmania by calling 1300 364 277.

Relationships Australia’s Organisation Wellbeing service is confidential, supportive, and psychologically safe and is a dedicated support team for leaders, employees, and teams, enhancing workplace cultures, job satisfaction, collaboration, and communication skills.

By launching this locally based initiative, Relationships Australia is reinforcing its commitment to improving the lives, cultures, and wellbeing of Tasmanian organisations and the people who make them unique.
