Regional Work and Organisational Resilience Sturt Group
Strengthening organisational resilience and workplace wellbeing in regional communities
Resilient and productive workplaces are central to vibrant regional communities and the provision of essential human services. Workforce mental health and wellbeing and its relationship to leadership and organisational resilience are fast emerging, high impact areas of research.
The Regional Work and Organisational Resilience Sturt Group (RWOR) is exploring experiences of workers in regional Australia and examining the factors that contribute to their physical, mental, emotional health and wellbeing.
A cross-disciplinary and evidenced based approach is being taken, by exploring workplace wellbeing within different organisational settings with a focus on regional organisational resilience.
RWOR consists of two pillars:
1. Workforce Wellness
This pillar conducts research on the physical, emotional, and mental health and wellbeing of the workforce.
2. Leadership, Management and Human Resources
This pillar conducts research on the role of leadership, organisational communication, and human resource management in creating healthy work environments.
