Workplace Health and Wellbeing
Australians spend about one third of their lives at work, so what they do at work to maintain their health is a major influence on overall health and risk of developing lifestyle-related chronic disease such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Organisations that promote health and wellness are more likely to retain staff within 12 months.1
A healthy worker is good for business
According to Get Healthy at Work, In the short-term, you'll be able to recognise a successful workplace health program by the way your team:
- Works together
- Engages in their jobs
- Enjoys their work
In the long-term, a successful workplace health program may influence the performance of your workplace through:
- Gains in staff attraction and retention
- Improved productivity
- Enhanced corporate image
- Reductions in absenteeism
Of course we all know that a healthy worker is a safe worker
If safety is a particular concern at your workplace then ensuring your workers are healthy is vital. There is a growing recognition that healthy workers are safe workers.
Healthy workers are:
- More aware and alert
- More resilient against illness
A workplace health savings calculator is available on the Get Healthy at Work page here.
