People, culture and wellbeing

Those who choose to work or volunteer in the sector are generally good people seeking to make a difference. Like any sector however, organisations still need to ensure they attract the right people, provide the right training and development opportunities to ensure they stay and have the right policies to create a safe working environment that meets the ever-changing regulatory and compliance requirements.

Critically, the team needs to be united and clear on the organisation’s strategies, priorities and how the organisation gets things done – i.e. the culture.

Having your people aligned and committed to the organisation’s values and vision, in a culture that values individuality and teamwork, is critical to a healthy and successful organisation. To achieve this takes time, effort and continual focus as people come and go, and as your organisation changes. Our experts can guide you through establishing strong foundations, as well as navigating challenges as they emerge or as your organisation grows.

The session we attended on vicarious trauma was excellent. I’ve heard many similar things before on trauma memory and psychological safety, but this was probably the best explained version I’ve come across.

Why Benefolk for People, culture and wellbeing?

Our team is fiercely dedicated to changemakers and we’re committed to empowering them with everything they need to make their impact and thrive. Those who go it alone face the same challenges as everyone else, but striving for greatness alone is hard, particularly if you are the leader. Staff and volunteers need support, but so too do the leaders. Those driving change need to be able to sustain their efforts for the long-haul.

Our role is to support them and eradicate changemaker burnout, while they strive to make their vision for a better society reality.

With a range of specialists with experience as leaders of NFPs and others with deep expertise in the people and culture space, Benefolk can offer the support that you and your organisation need.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land and waters and their knowledge of the places where we gather to collaborate and strengthen communities. In our work, we recognise the importance of Country, not just as a place, but how it also maintains community, family, kin, lore and language. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.
