The last year has been exceptionally hard on individual mental health, and physical exercise is so important to staying happy, healthy and positive! Your staff will love doing something that makes them feel great.
Become part of the conversation around mental health in the workplace.
Mental illness costs the Australian economy $12billion per year in reduced productivity and sickness related to mental health issues. Taking part in One Foot Forward is a fantastic way to change the conversation and encourage your staff to take their mental health seriously.
