A HEALTHIER, HAPPY & MORE PRODUCTIVE WORKFORCE
Why create a healthier workplace?
Like many developed nations, Australia is currently witnessing a significant increase in the burden of chronic disease.
Workplaces everywhere are feeling the impact (and daily cost) of the current health of our workforce – reduced productivity, high stress levels, poor job satisfaction, increased sickness, growing absenteeism, high staff turnover and mistakes caused by physical and mental fatigue.
This situation clearly needs to be turned around. With most Australians spending about one third of their lives at work, it simply makes good business sense to invest in making the work environment a key setting for promoting positive health and wellbeing.

The business advantages of having fitter, healthier and happier employees on the payroll are many and varied, including:
