Workplace Culture Risks Workshop

The workshop highlighted the need for resources across all business levels to ensure consistency in managing these issues, with key focus areas including leadership, governance, strategy, psychological safety and physical safety. 

The key-note speech was presented by Melanie Cooper, Rio Tinto on Everyday Respect: Report into Workplace Culture at Rio Tinto.
