Dave collaborates widely with leading national and international experts in psychological health and safety, behavioural ethics and wellbeing. He is an advocate for evidence-informed approaches to workplace mental health and committed to translating academic research into real work initiatives.
“We spend far too much time at work to not make our workplaces the best places they can be and by getting strategic, by focusing on improving peoples experience of work, we can improve the lives of people both within and outside of the workplace.”
Evidence-informed practices have been used as the foundations of the Westpac mental health strategy, where mental health is considered a positive concept.
Dave is conscious that mental health does not discriminate and can affect anyone, including high performers. Therefore, it is important to look at mental health holistically, where supporting the mental health needs of everyone in the organisation will allow them to flourish and thrive.
