Human resources expert Lindsay McMillan has found the main reason employees seek counselling is a breakdown in relationships at work and home.

In his Renewing Australian Workplaces report, McMillan analysed more than 300,000 hours of counselling and found that with big shifts in workplaces affected by technological changes and the rise in part-time work, a greater focus on relationships was needed.

“Relationships are central to how people do their jobs, how people develop and how you can achieve sustainable workplace performance,” McMillan says.

The report highlights four healthy workplace principles to create healthy relationships: inclusion, development, engagement and life enhancement.
