People and culture
In the People and Culture team at Black Dog we are working to translate our own world leading workplace mental health research to create a positive, productive, mentally healthy workplace. We want our staff to enjoy coming to work because we believe that a happy, engaged workforce is also the most productive.
Working with us
Be part of a team who value compassion, respect, collaboration and excellence as we work toward a mentally healthier world.
At Black Dog we spend a lot of time talking about how mentally healthy workplaces are positive and productive. We have worked hard to create an environment where people feel comfortable and safe.
We welcome diversity, inclusion and equity for all staff.
We offer a targeted wellbeing program at Black Dog which is informed by and designed in response to the results of our annual happiness and wellbeing in the workplace survey. The program offers opportunities for building individual resilience, mindfulness and physical health as well as plenty of social engagement.
We care a great deal about our employees' mental health and wellbeing and have stated our commitment in the Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy. This policy provides a framework in which we promote wellbeing and the prevention of mental illness, early intervention and recovery.
We are committed to supporting our people to strike the right balance between work and personal life, and respect that family life is vital to most people’s health and happiness.
We support and promote a healthy work/life balance, with many roles offering flexible hours, part-time work, job sharing, paid parental leave, family/carer’s leave and other flexible working arrangements.
