More than two thirds (67%) of small businesses have not discussed mental health days, according to fresh data from MYOB.
The finding, from a survey conducted with 757 Australian small business operators, is compounded by the fact that just half (52%) of respondents said they feel able to address mental health issues affecting their staff.

FUTURE OF BUSINESS
MYOB Future of Business: The Future is Now
There's no doubt the next three to five years of technological disruption will impact every business in New Zealand.
But are New Zealand businesses truly ready for the magnitude of change expected over the next few years? Are they prepared to ride the next wave of technological disruption? Or will they miss the opportunities of an exciting but unpredictable new world?
As the future fast approaches - and takes each of us with it - a combination of investment, business preparedness and government support will make all the difference to the success of our economy and the businesses that work to support it.
WOMEN IN TECH
Women in tech need greater support says MYOB
In the latest MYOB Women in Tech report – released at a special Techweek event on Thursday 23 May – the company said there is still work to be done among the local tech sector if New Zealand is to live up to its reputation as a society that recognises, promotes and enjoys the full benefits of equal representation of women.
According to report, nearly half of the tech industry’s female leaders have personally experienced gender bias in the workplace. The report also says just 25% of local technology businesses have equal representation in their leadership teams (41% to 60% of their leaders are female), while only one in ten tech businesses work to actively address discrimination. Less than half pay their female employees the same as men in the same role.
