Lendlease is committed to the health and safety of its people and those who work with us, and we have been acknowledged externally for our focus on providing healthy workplaces.
Lendlease is certified as a ‘Global Healthy Workplace’ in recognition of our focus on employee health & wellbeing. This certification was granted by the Global Centre for Healthy Workplaces in October 2017 and we have continued to remain certified.
We have a holistic approach to health & wellbeing, and continue to grow our focus around mental health. We know that employees are likely to experience higher levels of stress, anxiety and depression if they work in the construction sector, and consequently are more likely to die by suicide than a workplace incident.
Looking after the physical and mental health of our people is a significant part of the Lendlease culture. In support of this Lendlease introduced wellbeing leave in 2015 – giving all employees one day every four months to attend to health & wellbeing related needs.
We will continue to work with industry partners and experts to grow our knowledge in these areas, and importantly, address these health & wellbeing challenges. Today Lendlease partners with organisations around the world including Mental Health First Aid, Frankie Health, and Lyra Health to deliver our mental health programs.
Our programs aim to raise awareness and provide preventative and active support to anyone who may be experiencing a mental health condition.
