SuperFriend – helping employers create mentally healthy workplaces
At Kinetic Super, helping Australians achieve a positive financial future is just the beginning of our vision and commitment. We can help them to manage their wellbeing more holistically, across mental health and general wellbeing too.
That’s why we’ve partnered with SuperFriend - a mental health promotion foundation that makes it simple for employers to create mentally healthy workplaces. The goal is to reduce the incidence of suicide and the impact of mental illness on individuals and organisations.
Suicide is now the leading cause of death for Australian men and women aged 15 - 44 years, and people with mental health conditions are at great risk.
45% of Australians will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.[i]
Benefit of healthy workplaces
Together with SuperFriend we assist workplaces to promote mental health and wellbeing by providing access to workplace assessments, programs and resources.
90% of employees think mental health is an important issue for businesses. Only 50% believe their workplace is mentally healthy.[ii]
Employers can benefit financially from a mentally healthy workplace. Every year untreated mental health conditions cost employers $10.9 billion.
Mentally healthy workplaces reduce absenteeism, increase productivity and tenure, and improve engagement and motivation.
Reach retirement happy, healthy and financially prepared
Our ultimate goal is for Australians to reach their retirement happy, healthy and financially prepared.
This means having the capacity and positive wellbeing to work and enjoy life. We want people to have the confidence that they’ll have enough savings in the future when they’re no longer working.
