Action plan with your assessment tool results

After populating the assessment tool you will have a better understanding of your organisation’s ‘baseline’ with respect to the pillars of the Thrive at Work Framework.

Your next actions will be dependent on what you found during your evaluation and the specific needs of your organisation. For example

  • you may decide to focus on strengthening a particular building block that has few or low maturity activities, or
  • you may prefer to focus more broadly and develop a single pillar (e.g. narrow your focus on the Prevent Harm building block to reduce risks).

The Plan section will guide you through the process of identifying your focus, developing your well-being strategy and action planning to address the results of your evaluation. Taking some time to plan will translate into more successful outcomes in the long term.

At the Plan stage you will build an action plan to address the results of the audit.

  1. Identify your focus.
  2. Establish or revise your organisation’s well-being strategy.
  3. Plan specific well-being actions.

Tailoring your plan

Although it is recommended that the Plan section is completed using the method specified, it is not strictly necessary. There is no single way to design and implement mental health and well-being activities because every organisation has different starting points, needs and pressures that are unique to their context. For some organisations, the process outlined in this section may not be feasible or practical. It is important that you consider your organisation’s context (such as resources, time frames, reporting requirements) and build an action plan that works best for the unique needs and constraints of your organisations. For example, some organisations may prefer to achieve some quick wins to build staff engagement with the well-being initiative before writing or modifying their strategy. You are encouraged to consider your organisation’s context, needs, appetite for action, and resources and engage with the Plan stage in the way that is best suits your organisation.
