Lisa, 41, was in employment, however, was experiencing bullying and harassment in the workplace. As the primary carer of children in Primary School, leaving this job without an alternative plan wasn’t an option.
Lisa’s mental health had started deteriorating and she was experiencing anxiety as well as a lack of self-confidence.
When Lisa commenced with atWork Australia, Narrogin, WA, she appeared downtrodden and mentioned having poor mental health. Throughout her appointments, her Job Coach, Jennifer, began to realise that the source of her unhappiness was her workplace.
Lisa had tried to work through the concerns with the management team, but to no avail. Thus, she looked to Jennifer for support to help her navigate the situation. Jennifer saw that Lisa had become very unhappy, exacerbating her mental health.
Jennifer referred Lisa to the in-house wellness services, as well as another employment opportunity; she was successful in securing the role.
Jennifer provided financial support for interview clothes, essential checks/clearances, and clothes to start work.
Lisa was surprised, relieved and overjoyed to get the job. She was grateful to Jennifer and the atWork Australia team for helping her secure the job in less than two weeks.
Lisa says, “I’m so happy to be working somewhere everyone is so friendly and helpful; they actually acknowledge me.”
Jennifer says, “I am happy to help her find better employment, escaping the toxic workplace environment and achieving a positive outcome in employment.”
“Now I am looking forward to going to work. I am so grateful to have secured this job. The working conditions are better for me physically and the other staff are so friendly and helpful.” – Lisa, Workforce Australia client.
