October is Mental health month - 5 tips for leaders to promote positive mental health in their workplace
According to the Superfriend's "Thriving Workplace Survey 2017", a report on the current state of mental health in the Australian workplace, 2 out of every 5 workers reported that they had left a job because of a poor workplace mental health environment.
October is Mental Health Month across Victoria, and given that BRM Projects sees wellbeing as a central element in every one of our projects, today's blog will provide workplace leaders with some helpful tips on implementing and maintaining a mentally healthy workplace.
In A Nutshell…
Activity based working is rapidly taking over traditional ways of working. The flexibility and freedom to move throughout different spaces in the workplace is a highly valued and very necessary part of modern work. These spaces are tailored to different types of work activities and are used by employees for different purposes, making the workspace more dynamic and ultimately more productive.
Leesman defines activity based working as more of a “business strategy” than a “workplace strategy”, providing multiple work settings to meet the individual’s working needs and helping them implement certain tasks.
Mike Zervos, CEO, Courage to Care, Victoria
BRM Projects has always enjoyed working on meaningful projects for organisations with a powerful message. Our work in the Not-For-Profit sector has seen us working with teams and individuals who care about their cause and work tirelessly to promote it.
We’ve partnered with Mike Zervos in the past on a number of different projects for charities he has worked for, providing property advice and office fit-outs. We’re now excited to join him as commercial property advisors in his newest role as Chief Executive Officer for Courage to Care, an outreach program that uses the memory of the Holocaust to encourage the fight against prejudice and discrimination.
We recently sat down with Mike to talk about past experiences together and to discuss his current role in this fantastic initiative.
What Is A Make Good?
A ‘Make Good’ obligation is essentially what it sounds like. It is the tenant’s obligation, when reaching the end of the lease term, to ensure that they ‘make good’ the premises before leaving. This is a standard clause of most commercial leases requiring the tenant to return the property to the landlord in its original, clean and tidy state.
Make Goods exist in order to be fair to both parties when it comes to the make good works the tenant will be required to undertake. A well drafted Make Good clause will specify how certain areas and items will be handled at the end of the lease, making it clear for everyone. This may involve fit-outs installed by the tenant or ownership of certain items within the property. Ultimately, the Make Good clause contributes to a more seamless leasing process and avoids disputes between the tenant and landlord upon the end of the lease.
