Online induction tool boosts emotional resilience of employees who work away
The new Mining Family Matters Online Induction Tool is a clever new program aimed at boosting the emotional resilience of employees who work away.
The 20-minute induction tool Making It Work When You Work Away features professional advice from our psychologist Angie Willcocks and practical tips for keeping employees happy and healthy despite regular separation from loved ones.
It's designed as a stand-alone program, or as a perfect accompaniment to our hugely successful survival guides.
Created in conjunction with Perth-based international online training company Health Safety Works, the induction tool is specifically tailored to ensure information is relevant to individual workers whether they’re single, in a relationship or have children.
It offers proactive advice and simple strategies on the most common issues faced by employees who work away in all industries, including:
- overcoming mood swings and 'black days'
- avoiding arguments about how R&R is spent
- staying connected without 24/7 phone access
- helping children to cope
- the importance of setting goals & staying fit and healthy
Featuring a short welcome video, the induction tool also includes easy-to-read, accessible content, worker testimonials and a series of fun, engaging multiple-choice questions to ensure employees understand all the key messages.
