August 2019

A brave community for Australia’s most progressive Executives and Leaders dedicated to building high energy, high performing cultures where individuals, teams and business will thrive.

What Is The Thriving Workplace?

It’s a radical new movement built on a very simple belief – that behind every thriving business is a group of thriving human beings.

If you want your team or organisation to grow and succeed, you’ll need high-energy individuals and a strong culture to connect them all! It may be a simple concept, but workplaces globally are struggling to reach their full potential. Only 13% of employees are typically engaged in their work and Australian businesses are losing $33 billion annually in lost productivity from absenteeism.

It’s every leader’s responsibility to help combat this trend. At The Thriving Workplace 2019 event, your peers will show you how. Whether you are an individual looking to increase your own vitality and performance at work, or an executive responsible for thousands of employees, we invite you to join us and make a positive influence in your own world and beyond!

This was by far the best event I have EVER gone to. I walked away inspired professionally and personally – plus I have never met so many amazing people in one place at one time! Thank you for your vision and I am blessed to have had the opportunity to be part of the event with you. Sarah Ferraina

Marketing & Communications Manager – Beaumont People

I came away with an abundance of ideas on how I can impact my organisation in order to be well and thrive into the future. You have really started something and I encourage you to keep going with your mission. We all share the same desire to see our workplaces become places where people can be the best they can be! Renee Peterson

General Manager – Operations, People & Culture – Care Connect


The Thriving Workplace Manifesto is a written representation of our community,  providing this important movement with purpose, knowledge and direction.

The Manifesto is the product of a whole year of consultation with our Voice of the Collective – a dedicated group of awesome leaders from over 50 public and private organisations here in Australia.

Representitives from every level and corner of organisations have been involved – including Sales, Finance, Operations, HR and Marketing – because EVERYBODY, regardless of title or position, has a huge part to play in building thriving workplaces!

Download the Manifesto below to gain an unique insight into what your peers think about these important questions:

* What does a thriving team or workplace look like? *

* What are the key ingredients to thrive? *

* What are the realities that we are facing that may be preventing us from thriving already? *

I cannot express my appreciation at your generosity and hospitality, but most importantly your humility and intelligence and capacity to inspire. What you have created in such a short period of time is phenomenal and we at SSI are GREAT fans!!! I was so very inspired and enjoyed every moment I was there – the accommodation the food the people and networks, the speakers WOW, the goodies, the vibe the environment the people the learnings and the reflections. Thank you so very very much. We will always be a part of The Serenity Collective! Violet Roumeliotis
