Promoting Mental Health in the Workplace with Corporate Entertainment in Australia

June is Men’s Mental Health Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about the mental health challenges faced by men and promoting strategies for mental well-being. Did you know? Male suicide continues to be the leading killer of Australian men under the age of 44. (The statistics for the year 2022). In the corporate world, this is a critical issue, as mental health significantly impacts productivity, job satisfaction, and overall workplace harmony. At Eventpod, we believe in the power of corporate entertainment to foster a positive mental health culture in the workplace.

The Importance of Mental Health in the Workplace

Mental health is a vital component of overall health, yet it is often overlooked in the corporate environment. Men, in particular, may face stigma when discussing mental health issues, making it essential for companies to create supportive spaces. Promoting mental well-being can lead to increased employee engagement, reduced absenteeism, and a more vibrant and collaborative workplace.

On top of this, research has revealed that two-thirds of men who are struggling or in crisis don’t feel confident and empowered enough to ask for help. That’s why this Men’s Health Month, we are encouraging everyone to look out for the signs that a man in their life – a husband, partner, father, brother, colleague, teammate, or friend – is struggling, and to reach out and ask, “Are you OK?”

Some of the signs to look out for include:

  • Are they becoming withdrawn?
  • Have they experienced big changes in their personal or professional life?
  • Are they confused, irrational, moody or acting different?
  • Have they lost interest in what they used to love?
  • Are they experiencing health issues?

Sometimes the signs are harder to spot, but if you are concerned about someone, trust your gut and ask, “Are you OK?” Listen with an open mind to what they have to say and ask them what you can do to help. You can also watch for the free Know Your Man Facts toolkit on the Australian Men’s Health Forum.

How Corporate Entertainment Can Help

Corporate entertainment isn’t just about having fun; it’s about building connections, reducing stress, and fostering a sense of community. Here’s how various corporate entertainment options can promote mental health in the workplace:

1. Team-Building Activities

Organizing team-building activities such as outdoor adventures, or winery and comedy,  can help employees bond, improve communication, and alleviate stress. These activities provide a break from the daily grind and help foster a supportive and cohesive team environment.

2. Major Concerts with Premium Hospitality

Music has a powerful effect on mood and well-being. Offering tickets to major concerts with premium hospitality can provide employees and clients with an unforgettable experience, boosting morale and enhancing relationships. Think of attending a Billie Eilish, Crowded House or Olivia Rodsrigo concert with corporate packages that include VIP treatment and exclusive access.

3. Sports Games and Dinner Events

Sports events are great for creating a sense of camaraderie. Hosting a corporate outing to a big game, complete with dinner and premium seating, can help relieve stress and build stronger bonds among colleagues, clients, and business partners.

4. Masterclasses and Cultural Events

Masterclasses and cultural events offer opportunities for learning and personal growth. These events can be tailored to provide enriching experiences that inspire creativity and innovation, contributing to overall mental well-being. Read more here.

5. Unique Experiences

Custom-tailored private events allow companies to create unique experiences that cater specifically to their team’s interests and needs. Whether it’s a wellness retreat, a themed party, or a networking event, these gatherings can help strengthen relationships and promote a positive work environment.
