COVID-19 represents an invaluable opportunity for us to take stock of how we lead our people and champion workplace mental health, both now and after this crisis has passed. The evidence is becoming increasingly clear that distance need not be a barrier when it comes to nurturing your people from afar and promoting a flourishing workplace.

Organisational change can be a significant psychosocial hazard for organisations. This helpful tip sheet will start you thinking on how you can manage this risk and support staff during uncertainty.

About virtual training

At Communicorp, we recognise though there is much to gain from face to face training delivery, it can bring significant, operational challenges.

Our virtual learning products have been developed with the recognition that that every organisation is different, and that to meet the needs of an ever-changing workforce, flexibility is imperative.

Our clients look to virtual learning to meet the needs of workers who:

  • Work flexibly
  • Work from home
  • Are geographically dispersed or isolated
  • Seek highly accessible learning environments

Communicorp’s virtual workshops and webinars have been expertly designed to be engaging, practical, interactive and focussed on developing not only capability but also confidence in managing mental health in the workplace.

Our virtual workshops are facilitated live by a senior psychologist with substantial experience in workplace mental health and training delivery.

This method of delivery not only ensures a robust evidence base to our interventions but also a wealth of experience in practical applications that are adaptable to the requirements of participants.

Our online platform enables us to engage the audience through activities such as:

  • Live chat with an AHPRA registered psychologist
  • Interactive polls and Q & As
  • Interactive eWhiteboards
  • Break out rooms for group discussion, live roleplays and targeted facilitator feedback
  • Interactive activity workbooks

As a leading global human services provider, Communicorp is closely monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) pathogen.

Although many organisations understand the importance of mental health and wellbeing, the question of how to transform these good intentions into practical, effective and sustainable actions continues to be hotly debated. 

Our collaboration with Surf Life Saving NSW is something that we are extremely proud of. Learn more from Elisa Walther, one of our talented psychologists, about the importance of proactively supporting the wellbeing of volunteers and staff who save lives on our beaches every day.


Irene from Hellocare caught up with Mark Oostergo, our General Manager, at the 3rd Annual Palliative, Aged, Dementia Care forum. Mark shares with us a brief overview of the importance of improving employee mental health in an aged care workplace.?

The former US Surgeon General said workplace loneliness is as bad for your health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. In the UK, the government has been so concerned about loneliness that it's appointed its first ever Minister for Loneliness.
