How to build a more stress-resilient culture

So often when we are asked to undertake an investigation into allegations of problematic workplace behaviour, it becomes clear that it was all about the “how”, rather than the “what”. 1) How adept and skilled were the team members at responding to a range of stressors which may influence behaviour? 2) How competent was everyone […]

Positive vs Negative Momentum Energy within Teams

Identifying when the workplace, or a team, is heading ‘downward’ or showing signs of negative momentum, can sometimes be tricky. As an employer, you don’t always have visibility over the extent and causes of workplace problems.

They’re looking forward to a break, but maybe not to the looming madness of functions, big-ticket spending and hosting extended family.

How to respond when a critical incident occurs in your organisation

Unfortunately, from time to time, organisations can be faced with unexpected and possibly traumatic incidents. These may be events like the death of a client in a residential facility or at a recreational site; the suicide of a staff member; or a significant workplace accident or near-miss.

Why your organisation should add conflict coaching to its HR toolkit

At Worklogic, every day we see the bitter results of workplace conflict that has not been effectively managed. To avoid escalation, it is critical for employers to implement strategies to address workplace conflict as soon as it occurs.

Are You OK? Wellbeing, Performance and Conduct of Employees with a Mental Illness

This month, the RUOK Day campaign prompted us at Worklogic to think again about mental health. The employers we work with are always well intentioned – they want to support their employees through anxiety and depression, as well as other illnesses and personal crises. But how should the employer respond when the employee’s mental illness […]

Toxic at the Top: Can badly behaved managers and leaders be reformed?

At Worklogic we are commonly asked how to build a good workplace culture and ensure employees are accountable for their conduct at work… when senior leaders and managers are setting a bad example.
