The Health and Wellbeing at Work Research Group is committed to providing insights and informing discussion around the health and wellbeing of employees at work, applying a human resource management (HRM) lens. Specifically, our research focuses on developing an understanding of how wellbeing HRM initiatives can help employees in organisations in health care, white- and blue-collar industries, not-for-profit, and NGOs achieve organisational success.  

Research Themes

Wellbeing of workers during/post COVID

Psychological Safety at Work

Lived experience of workers

Risk and Psychological Health at the Workplace

HRM in Aged Care

Indicative Projects and Events

The Health and Wellbeing Research Group was launched at the first CoBL ‘Thought Leadership Event’ for 2022 on the 11th May - Challenges of managing employee well-being post-COVID: Towards well-being HRM practices, with industry speakers from Medibank and the Department of Transport.

Two online Forums were held on the 4th July and 11th July for School academics to discuss their health and wellbeing initiatives and potential research projects.

The Group hosted a joint College and School event on the 27th July. Presenters were from the College and Industry and delivered presentations on Thriving in Hybrid.

Two events are currently being organised for September and November. Both events will support the health and wellbeing of staff/workers. In September we will have a presentation on HRM initiatives post COVID and the event in November will focus on embedding Indigenous perspectives into curriculum – building a healthy community.
