AHRI AWARD FOR MENTAL HEALTH IN THE WORKPLACE

Maurice Blackburn Lawyers

Maurice Blackburn’s (MB) employees often interact with clients suffering emotional distress and trauma.

Their Vicarious Trauma (VT) program includes procedures and work practices for dealing with distressed and suicidal clients, ongoing trauma training for employees, specialist training for leaders and HR, psychological assessment and resilience plan development, and psychological support for high-risk teams.

This program was one of the top three factors driving employee engagement. 90% of employees felt the culture supports talking openly about coping and proactively managing VT.
