#HANDSUP Wins 'Leading from the Front' Resource Industry Network Award


G&S Engineering's #HANDSUP initiative won the 2016 Resource Industry Network Chairman’s Leading from the Front Award, which recognises organisations who have successfully engaged with their employees to deliver a better outcome for their people or their business.

Haley Lee, General Manager People and Capability, said, “The Leading from the Front award is a credit to those brave individuals who shared their story in the #HANDSUP film. 

“Our teams have certainly led from the front over the past twelve months when it comes to ending the stigma associated with mental illness. We have seen very positive results in our workplace, individuals are speaking up and seeking help and managers are more aware of how they can offer support to their teams.

“Changing viewpoints and perceptions of mental illness doesn’t happen overnight, it is a journey, but we feel that through #HANDSUP we are taking a step in the right direction and doing our part to raise awareness and offer support.”
