- MYOB’s Community Investment Program: Running a small business is exciting but being responsible for the company’s success or failure can take its toll and present a number of challenges leading to mental exhaustion, stress, anxiety, depression and suicide.
- MYOB’s Community Investment Program seeks to help more businesses succeed by delivering measurable improvements in Mental Health awareness, wellbeing and outcomes for the owners and founders of small businesses and start-ups across Australia & New Zealand.
In particular, we will achieve this by:
- Investing in/enabling thought leadership to create shared value across our clients, small business and government
- Collaborating with experts and community organisations to research issues and develop best practice models to address mental health issues specifically small business owners, entrepreneurs and start-up founders
- Contributing accounting products, financial support, employee time and public relations efforts to the partner organisation/s
- Contributing research resources and public relations efforts to the cause more generally as part of the MYOB Community Investment strategy.
MYOB welcomes the insights of prospective partners in identifying innovative or different ways to meet the objective of improving mental health in the small business sector across Australia and New Zealand where MYOB operates.
MYOB wishes to identify one or more national Community Partner/s that help us deliver our Community Investment Program objectives, and make positive, measurable impact in the communities in which MYOB operates across ANZ.
