Recognising a diverse workforce

We have a number of experts providing content in the following areas: parenting, disability, aged care support, transition to and from the workforce, best practices in workplace flexibility, health and wellbeing and more.

Premium add-ons

In addition to our partners above, we have a number of premium services available to complement your Work & Life Hub.

Uprise – Preventative Mental Health System

Uprise is an award-winning new technology for finding and supporting employees with mental health issues before they reach crisis point. Created at the University of New South Wales and backed by 10 years of clinical trials, Uprise is based on the idea that employees who need help are unlikely to ask for help, so Uprise reaches out to them rather than expecting employees to seek help on their own. 
 
Wellness Pulse Checks: 6 questions in less than a minute that give your company anonymised reporting on wellbeing and causes of risk. Uprise proactively reaches out to all at-risk employees.  
 
Digital Programs: Low risk employees are referred into digital resilience training and moderate risk into digital cognitive behavioural therapy. 
 
Phone Coaching: Moderate to high risk employees are linked with a psychologist who acts as a coach. Coaching is growth focused rather than remedial to prevent stigma. 
 
Face to face: If you have an EAP, Uprise can make your EAP work for you by referring complex issues to your provider. If you need an EAP, Uprise can provide face to face sessions with our provider network. 

Locator reports

The SeventeenHundred Locator report service supports employees who are short on time or uncertain where to start to by researching and reporting on the most appropriate services that meet their particular requirements. 

Ask an expert

Our wide range of consultants and partners can offer valuable one-to-one advice and assistance to employees on a wide range of topics relating to childcare, aged care and disability.

A telephone appointment can be arranged on an employee’s request to seek advice on a range of caring topics. Areas covered by our experts span diverse topics such as understanding the childcare, aged care and disability care systems, the different types of care available, potential cost of care as well as understanding Government benefit and entitlements available.
