WHY WE DO IT

When a team member is absent from work it not only costs the company a day’s pay.  It also affects the quality of the work being performed, puts pressure on other team members by increasing workload, puts stresses on management to meet outcomes and can put stresses on customers if mistakes are made or the product/service is late.

The majority of work related injuries according to the ABS are sprains and strains along with chronic joint or muscle conditions.   All of which are avoidable and all of which can be substantially reduced by a healthy work life.

For many years studies have shown that exercise has a major affect on avoiding illnesses such as the flu or stress related mental illness both of which have a major affect on businesses and employees every month.

*The workplace plays an important part in combating the rise in chronic disease, promoting participation in employment, and preventing needless disability. 

The workplace can affect the physical, mental, economic and social wellbeing of workers and therefore offers opportunities to improve worker health.

To realise the health benefits of work and accelerate the prevention of chronic disease, workplaces need to extend their agenda to include health and wellbeing. 

Good work is good for you. 

Strong evidence shows that good worker health and wellbeing boosts organisational health and business performance.

Chronic disease negatively affects worker productivity and workplaces bear a number of associated costs. Health and wellbeing programs can improve performance and productivity and reduce indirect costs.
