What are the benefits of a healthy workplace?

Australians spend about a third of their lives at work so it only makes sense to consider the workplace an important place to improve health and wellbeing.

Organisations that implement workplace health and wellbeing programs are known to have:

  • increased employee morale and engagement
  • improved corporate image
  • reduced workplace injuries and associated expenses, and
  • increased attraction and retention of employees.

According to research, healthier employees:

  • are more productive
  • are more engaged in their work
  • have less sick leave, and
  • have greater levels of energy and concentration.
