A purpose-made CV and cover letter from beyondblue provides Australian businesses with skills to create mentally healthy workplaces!
More than 12 million people spend one-third of their week at work and 1 in 5 employed Australians experience a mental health issue. The imaginative campaign enlivens the traditional hiring process by engaging managers and professional leaders in a surprising, yet simple way.
This year’s Heads Up campaign ensures HR professionals and business owners have the information and tools to foster a mentally healthy work environment. The information is presented in a handy CV and cover letter application, which outlines the nine attributes of a healthy workplace.
beyondblue delivered the ‘mock’ job applications to companies currently hiring across HR and recruitment, management and telecommunications, health and education, media and publishing, and finance and law.
Heads Up takes an educational approach to workplace health – and this year is no different,” says beyondblue CEO Georgie Harman.
We’re excited to see the recipients’ reactions to our ‘mock’ job applications from beyondblue. It’s an engaging and creative way to bring a serious and hugely important topic into conversation.
Heads Up is for big and small businesses alike, from sole traders to multinational corporations. No matter the business size, the role of leaders is crucial to create and sustain positive mental health.
Through Heads Up, we also have a host of online materials, backed by evidence-based information, tools and resources to help businesses manage mental health and employee wellbeing.”
Heads Up has accessible resources for employers, employees, managers and small business owners.
