How connection drives safety outcomes

Lara Ellson, Associate, Strategic Growth - Aurecon

Engaged employees who have meaningful work, quality connections and an opportunity to have their opinions heard have better safety outcomes than disengaged teams. Lara will share practical ways that line managers and colleagues can improve connection on any project and how this creates the link to improved mental health outcomes, high performing teams and excellent project delivery.

Are they really okay? Supporting mental health at work
