Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation invests in mental health

One of Australia’s largest super trustees, Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation (CSC), has announced its partnership with workplace mental health organisation SuperFriend, effective 12 August.

SuperFriend will support employers and customers of CSC’s super funds, in a partnership with CSC’s group insurer AIA Australia.

SuperFriend CEO Margo Lydon said, “Our 2019 Indicators of a Thriving Workplace research revealed that public administration workers experience higher levels of stress, work-related insomnia, bullying and mental health-related stigma compared to workers in other industries. We’re absolutely thrilled that CSC has committed to improving outcomes for these workers and their families.”

CSC’s CEO Damian Hill said, “Our vision is to build, support and protect better retirement outcomes for our customers and their families. An important part of that is investing in mentally healthy workplaces so that our customers’ wellbeing is supported throughout their working lives. As well as being financially secure, we want our customers to retire healthy and happy.”

CEO and Managing Director of AIA Australia and New Zealand Damien Mu stated, “AIA Australia is pleased to be making a difference in people’s lives by supporting CSC customers when they need it most, while also seeking continuous improvement in customer experience.”
