Mental health and employee wellbeing continue to be an area of focus for many employers today.

The Geelong HR Roundtables of 2019 on the topic “Mental Health and Mental Injury in the Workplace” and “Cultivating Resilience” were both oversubscribed. To accommodate the region’s, need in this area we have added additional events and added to our facilitation team to provide employers with the tools and resources to best manage their employees’ mental, health and wellbeing.

During COVID-19, these programs have been replaced with online Webinars.  Click here to find out more about Harvest’s MENTAL HEALTH & WELLBEING WORKSHOPS.

Building and cultivating resilience is such an important aspect of both our personal and professional lives. Melanie’s experience and knowledge was very evident in this thought provoking workshop.

The ‘Workforce Management in Crisis’ webinar series was an added bonus to access. In a time of rapid change due to COVID-19 and information coming in thick and fast from multiple areas, it was valuable to have these sessions available. Thank you Harvest HR for this series and the great work you have done in establishing a comprehensive Professional Development program for HR professionals in the Geelong region!

Great Presentations!

Both speakers were fantastic- informative, interesting and great presenters. Well worth coming to, I would like to come again and would highly recommend the HR Round table to others.

HR Roundtable Feedback

I thought the panellists were great. The information provided was useful and I enjoyed listening to the conversation. The discussion regarding the particular topic did not commence until 10am (after networking and introductions). Obviously we are all short for time these days so perhaps would prefer to see the discussion commence closer to the time of 9.30am. Thank you for initiating these conversations in Geelong.
