Variety is the spice of life, and it does wonders for business success too. We’re committed to empowering you to create healthy workplaces where you’re not afraid to employ a diverse mix of people to enrich your organisation.
We all have skills that should be recognised and rewarded and having a mental health condition should not dimish the valuable contribution we’re able to make to the workforce.
What is Skillness all about?
Helping to change the culture of your organisation to one that is more inclusive and successful.
Opening dialogue to lift the stigma surrounding mental illness and to help support recovery.
Building resilience to reduce absenteeism and presenteeism to promote a faster return to work following illness or injury.
Empowering businesses to look beyond mental illness and see the diverse and unique skills people have to offer.
Fostering relationships between local businesses to strengthen and build the community together.
Inclusion for everyone
To provide a safe environment for everyone who wants to contribute to the workforce, without fear.
