Healthy Communities - Healthy Workplaces
What is Healthy Workplaces
A workplace that promotes the health and wellbeing of staff also creates a positive and productive setting where people want to come to work.
What we do
We support local workplaces to achieve better health and wellbeing outcomes for their staff.
Why we do it
Staff spend up to a third of their time at work. Healthy workplaces and healthy staff are great for business, the local economy and a thriving community. Benefits of healthy staff include less staff injuries and illness, increased staff retention and improved productivity.
