We Work With Employers

FIFO Focus provides holistic, end-to-end programs for organisations to reduce mental harm in the workplace.

We believe prevention is far better than cure. Our team of registered psychologists and professionals are skilled at designing and implementing tailored, evidence based solutions that reduce risk factors and enhance protective factors.

We create better outcomes for both FIFO individuals and employers by helping your organisation improve mental wellbeing to:

  • Have a more productive and engaged workforce
  • Improve your image as an Employer of Choice
  • Enhance and embed your workplace culture
  • Engage your employees in company goals
  • Significantly improve your safety, absenteeism and turnover results
  • Take a proactive rather than reactive approach to mental health and wellbeing in workers

We Work With Individuals

Developing mental resilience is one of the key protective factors for FIFO workers and their families.  

For FIFO employees, learning better ways to deal with day to day stresses and challenges or remote work can lead a more fulfilling and rewarding life. Focusing on your mental wellbeing can help you:

  • Develop better connections and relationships with family and friends
  • Experience a sense of wellbeing, greater self-esteem and self-control
  • Improve your ability to deal with difficult situations and disappointments
  • Balance your work and personal life
  • Focus on work and your priorities regardless of what is happening around you
  • Cope better with problems on your own, even in difficult environments
  • Control your negative emotions
  • Limit feelings of being overwhelmed or stressed out
  • Become a better partner and parent

We Work With Families

Research has demonstrated the negative impact FIFO work can have on the wellbeing of not only FIFO employees, but also their partners and families. FIFO Focus helps family members:

  • Develop an awareness of their own issues associated with the effects of FIFO
  • Keep their relationship healthy
  • Cope while alone
  • Build resilience
  • Develop techniques to parent together and apart
  • Manage their household more effectively
