Ben Haycroft, Director and Workplace Liaison.
It’s not hard to strike up a conversation with Ben if you like anything to do with pop culture, fishing, travelling and food. In fact, you could talk about almost anything with Ben… he loves a good chat and his favourite part of working at Workplace Central is meeting with new clients and solving problems.
With a background in OHS, Ben enjoys working with clients to create simple solutions that suit workplace needs.

This month’s case study, focuses on Emma Bogard, employed as a Personal Support Worker, who can relate to this false sense of security.
