Why a healthy workplace?

With most of us spending around a third of our day in the workplace, a healthy workplace is a good place for business and individuals.

Improving health and wellbeing can increase employee job satisfaction and engagement. It has also been shown to improve productivity, reduce sick leave and increase employee retention.

The Healthy Workplaces Achievement Program aims to support and provide recognition to workplaces who set up staff health and wellbeing being programs.  If you are interested in supporting your staffs health, register your workplace to the Achievement Program today. Click here to join

Already registered, and don’t know where to start? Check out the step by step guide to setting up your health and wellbeing program with supporting resources. Click here
