Managing mental health in the workplace
This year, we had the pleasure of hosting a lunch about mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. The guest speaker was Geelong Cats General Manager – Football, Simon Lloyd, who is also a qualified psychologist. Simon shared his unique perspective on how teams such as the Cats, work to create positive, productive
and healthy workplaces.

Investing in regional NSWWe are adding to our investments in Australia’s Oyster Coast (AOC). The $20 million investment is part of an overall allocation in the GO NSW Fund, which seeks to provide capital funding to high-growth companies in exchange for a percentage of ownership. The investment in AOC, a company of over 45 oyster farmers on the NSW south coast, will increase employment from 19 to 75 staff, with 40 of these being new, full-time, regional jobs.

“The investment in AOC reflects our approach to investing in the communities where our members live, work and retire. It will not only deliver returns to our members, but provide capital to help expand an important regional industry.”
