Risk Matters - Autumn 2021

LGIS Workforce Risk Forum

20 April, 2021

Before 2020 hit us with a curve ball, workplace mental health was already a significant issue for WA local governments. COVID-19 and the challenges of 2020 have compounded existing issues and the topics of mental health, stress management, and resilience are more pressing than ever for local government leaders, people, and risk managers.

This special event was curated by LGIS to address issues currently faced by local governments, recognising that safe supportive workplaces don’t just happen – they are created with intent
and purpose.

We were joined by more than 90 local government workers from across the state. Over the day, experts explored:

  • Creating happy and resilient teams
  • Thriving, happy and productive workplaces
  • Psychological health and stress management
  • How to fight fairly and be effective at work
  • Local government insights, sector leaders share strategies and experiences
