Psycho-social risks in the workplace

CEO Summits October 2018 - Akl, Wgtn, Chch

This year’s October CEO Summits will focus on the leader’s role in managing psycho-social risks in the workplace.

Psycho-social risks are an increasing area of focus for members. Some are looking for guidance on how to move confidently into this area. Others want ideas on how to more effectively manage these risks or improve due diligence.

The Summits will focus on the obligations of CEOs but will also explore the opportunities than can open up when CEOs have more confidence in their ability to manage psycho-social risks.

We will hear from an expert about mind-sets and practices that can support CEOs to show leadership in this area. We will also hear how some Forum CEOs are identifying and managing these risks.

There will be an opportunity to discuss and share experiences with your fellow Forum CEOs. Attendees will also be asked to identify specific psycho-social risks they would like the Forum to focus on, with a view to us delivering more targeted support for members in 2019.

In addition, we will hear the outcome of the CEO noise challenge, launched at our May Summit, including a report-back from organisations that took part.

We will be running Summits in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Members can attend any Summit, regardless of where they are based. Our AGM will be held just prior to the Auckland Summit.
