Supporting ageing workers in the public transport industry
The Ageing Workforce Ready (AWR) project is an innovative collaboration between Australia's largest industry super fund AustralianSuper, and organisational psychology practitioners, Transitioning Well.
The project aims to protect and promote the mental health and wellbeing of ageing workers in the public transport industry. This will be achieved through the delivery of resources and advice to a pilot group of Victorian workplaces and their employees.
Activities will target Human Resource and Executive decision makers. Policies and procedures will be reviewed to provide guidance on eliminating, substituting and redesigning systems and processes to support ageing workers. Managers will be upskilled to support employees. Employees will be equipped with the knowledge and resources to navigate the challenges and opportunities of late career.
Blended learning approaches will be explored for scalability and sustainability. The learnings of the project will be shared with over 100,000 Victorian businesses using the AustralianSuper network.
An online tool helping you take your first steps towards a positive, mentally healthy workplace. The toolkit brings together resources and ideas that have worked for businesses like yours.
