R U OK? A conversation can change a life
R U OK? is a public health promotion charity that encourages people to stay connected and have conversations that can help others through difficult times in their lives.
Asking the question, 'are you OK?' can make a real impact in the workplace. As employers or staff, we can all create a culture where people feel confident asking and answering this simple yet important question. Besides our legal responsibility of providing a safe and healthy workplace, these conversations can make a real difference to staff going through a tough time.
Eldercare values of respect, accountability and connection are well aligned with the goals of the R U OK? charity. If any of us can help one of our workmates get the support they need during a tough time, then we are showing our commitment to the Eldercare values.
More information on how to have the R U OK? conversation can be found on R U OK? Website.
