“To deliver outstanding, world-class care to thousands of Australians every year, MindSpot needs to provide an exceptional workplace and culture,” Professor Titov says.
“When our staff thrive, they perform at their best. This means we aim to support our team across multiple domains including their learning and development, remuneration, psychological and physical wellbeing, promoting good work/life balance and providing work flexibility.
“Our people are the heart of MindSpot, and collectively our team [members] have created and sustained a healthy workplace and culture that not only rewards, but nurtures.”
