workplace resilience webinar


Helping rebuild resilience in teams under pressure

There's no question that the last two years have been exhausting for you and your people. Through wave after wave of COVID-19 outbreaks, you’ve been working under extraordinarily challenging conditions.

HESTA’s latest State of the Sector workforce reports have shown that work burn-out and fatigue from COVID-19 is significantly impacting staff resilience and long-term workforce retention.


Supporting you to support your people

Our insurer, AIA Australia, is presenting a Workplace Resilience webinar available to all HESTA employers and partners designed to help you support your employees’ mental health and (re)build their resilience - both of which may have been challenged during the pandemic.

Hear from Aaron Williams, CEO of Mindstar, and Rob Prugue, Chair of People Reaching out to People (PROP), followed by a panel discussion with the opportunity to ask questions.



  • A snapshot of people’s wellbeing in 2022
  • What is resilience and mental fitness?
  • The four stages of COVID-19
  • Practical wellbeing exercises
  • How to engage with empathy, with work colleagues who may be struggling
  • Live interactive Q&A
