Creating a workplace that is safe, respectful and inclusive is not just about mitigating risk and exposure – it helps a business provide a better return on investment. Here, a BigLaw partner details the importance of nurturing the workplace and those within it and how to do so.

In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy welcomes back Hall & Wilcox partner Fay Calderone to discuss her new book, Broken to Safe, how and why she decided to write it, the state of affairs for combating workplace health and safety issues in Australia, and the appetite among business leaders to enact meaningful change.

Calderone also delves into her proposed framework for businesses to ensure they can be more high-performing and increasingly supportive of all staff members, the questions that business leaders need to be asking in order to implement change, the extent to which staff can and should be engaged in identifying the best pathways forward, and whether or not Australia is headed in the right direction in fostering safe, respectful, and inclusive workplaces.
