Using AI to improve psychosocial safety

Nearly half of Australian workers experience stress during much of their working day, according to research.

The State of the Global Workplace 2023 Report shows that 47% of Australian workers experienced stress during a large portion of their working day, compared with the global average of 44%.

Recent statistics from Beyond Blue also underscore the mounting crisis in workplace stress and mental health, with one in five Australian workers reporting time off due to mental unwellness.

As these levels of stress and anxiety continue to increase, it has steadily become apparent that traditional interventions are insufficient to address these psychosocial risks. To help address the issue, NeuroCapability and Noa Coach have collaborated on an innovative solution to combat workplace stress through a neuroscience-based approach to psychological safety.

The companies have created an all-encompassing program that explores the intricate workings of the human brain, revealing the neuroscience behind stress and behaviour. Their 12-week on-demand program aims to empower individuals, create a psychologically safe work environment and transform the way organisations approach mental wellbeing.

This program effectively manages stress and anxiety in real time, adheres to global psychosocial guidelines and complies with mental health legislation in multiple countries.

Key features of the program include:

  • Understanding the brain’s response to stress: This program provides a comprehensive understanding of the biological causes of stress, empowering individuals to better recognise and handle their responses.
  • Building healthy workplace habits: Facilitates purposeful exercises and techniques that align with the brain’s innate functions, fostering holistic health and resilience.
  • Enhancing trust and communication: Promotes constructive conversations, understanding and teamwork using techniques based on innate human social behaviour.
  • Continuous learning and evaluation: Employees can proactively maintain their mental health by regularly checking their wellbeing.

With the help of an AI coach and practical tools, participants can effectively combat stress and develop healthy habits to improve their overall wellbeing.

The program’s evidence-based approach draws from the latest advancements in neuroscience research, supported by data from Safe Work Australia, which shows that prioritising wellbeing leads to six times fewer sick absences and higher financial returns.

“Our program is more than a course; it’s a crucial investment in human potential and global wellbeing. By helping individuals understand their brains and what triggers stress, we’re empowering them to create lasting changes in their personal lives and workplaces, aligning with international standards and practices,” said Penny Curnow, COO of NeuroCapability.

“By equipping individuals with the insights and tools to navigate stress and fostering psychological safety, we are not only enhancing personal wellbeing but also propelling organisations towards compliance with global psychosocial standards,” said Meg Price, CEO of Noa Coach.
