Tandem Building Group renews partnership with MATES in Construction SA

In by Claire Corcoran

We are thrilled to announce that we have renewed our partnership with MATES in Construction SA. As a leading construction company, we are committed to promoting the mental health and wellbeing of our employees and creating a safe and supportive workplace culture.

Our industry has unique challenges associated with a highly-competitive environment and high-performance culture that can impact mental health and wellbeing. As our industry thrives on the contribution of our people, it is our role and duty to invest in transforming the management of mental health and wellbeing for our workers and subcontractors.

With our ongoing involvement with MATES, we are able to assist them in continuing their invaluable contribution to the mental health space, which they have been at the forefront of for many years. Partnering with MATES will help promote and grow this initiative, preventing mental health issues from developing and to mitigate the impact when they do occur.

MATES in Construction SA is a non-profit organisation that aims to reduce suicide rates among construction workers in South Australia. They provide training and support to workers in the construction industry to help them recognise the warning signs of suicide and to provide them with tools to intervene and help their colleagues. They also offer a range of resources and programs to support the mental health and wellbeing of construction workers.

At Tandem Building Group, we believe that promoting mental health and wellbeing is essential for creating a positive workplace culture and supporting our employees to reach their full potential. We are proud to renew our partnership with MATES in Construction SA and look forward to working together to create a safer and healthier construction industry for everyone.

“We are pleased to announce that Tandem Building Group has renewed as a SA TIER 3 Industry Partner. We can’t thank Tandem enough for their support of our program and commitment to improving the mental health of our industry.”
