How mentally healthy is your workplace?

Media release - 21 July 2023

Each year our partners at SuperFriend conduct the Indicators of a Thriving Workplace survey. Now in its eighth year, the 2022 survey is the widest the company has ever conducted. The latest study captured more factors influencing workplace mental health than ever before from almost 10,000 Australian workers.

The survey included over 100 questions across five key indicators: Leadership, Connectedness, Safety, Work Design and Capability.

What is the national benchmark for workplace mental health in Australia?

The survey has measured Australia’s national Thriving Workplace score as 72.8 out of 100, indicating there’s plenty of room for improvement.

Information Media and Telecommunications and Arts and Recreation Services were the highest-scoring industries at 77.8 and 77.00 respectively. Other Services (including repair and maintenance of cars, machinery, and equipment and clothing etc.) and Education and Training scored the lowest with 69.1 and 70.2 respectively.
