Enhancing your Mental Health and Wellbeing in a 24/7 Environment


There is no escaping the fact – a 24/7 workplace culture is the new normal across all industries. Shift work and the efficiencies of making the most of all hours in the day are clear. However, the pressure to be ‘always on’ can impact the mental health and wellbeing of employees.

With many industries struggling under intense competition, there is greater motivation to extend working days. Globalisation often demands employees work across multiple timezones. Underpinning these trends is technology that enables 24/7 availability.

So how can we take advantage of the opportunities presented by a 24/7 work culture without experiencing the pitfalls of stress, burnout, and dysfunctional work practices?

Don’t miss NAWO NSW’s first event for 2020, generously hosted by O-I Glass – the iconic global glass packaging company – to hear a fantastic line-up of experts sharing their perspectives on this important topic:

  • Jane Mahon, Calm Minds. With an extensive background in occupational services and counselling Jane works with organisations and teams to create positive high-performance workplace cultures, preventing stress and burn out. Jane will be talking about the ‘Fed Effect’, using Roger Federer as an example of how thinking style and behaviour can positively impact work performance.
  • Marlaina Morley, O-I Glass Sydney. With broad experience across the manufacturing, FMCG, construction & architecture sectors, Marlaina leads people-focused initiatives at the Penrith O-I plant, including the cultural shift in the wellbeing of the team.
  • Venita Hudson, Converge International. Leveraging her background in psychology, Venita works with organisations to support health and wellbeing for employees, adopting a practical, solutions based approach to facilitate positive change for individuals.

With opportunities for networking and to tour the iconic glassworks, this is an event not to be missed. Please book early to avoid disappointment.

Kickstart 2020 with insights that will ensure you can last the distance!

O-I Glass has always been driven by transformation. ‘It can be done’ was the motto of founder, Michael J Owens, more than a century ago. His legacy continues as the organisation leverages creativity and technology, transforming the glassmaking industry. Against this transformative backdrop, O-I recognises and embraces the importance of strategies to manage the 24/7 working environment.
