workplace wellness programs

Workplace wellness programs are quickly becoming an integral part of improving the health and wellbeing of Australia's workforce. A good workplace wellness program will not only enhance employee satisfaction and increase happiness, but studies are now telling us they can minimise the costs of absenteeism by 25% while decreasing workers compensation by as much as 40%. The Wellness Workshop's Workplace Wellness Programs are developed by a team of qualified practitioners and can be tailored to suit your business's needs. Our programs aim to optimise mental, physical and vocational health, while addressing barriers to productivity in the workplace.

what is a wellness program?

A wellness program, sometimes referred to as a wellbeing program encompasses the strategies and efforts implemented by an organisation such as a school, workplace or community organisation to improve the overall health and wellbeing of its members. Wellness programs generally include advice and resources to increase physical activity, reduce and manage stress, enhance mental health, improve nutrition, prevent disease, aid communication and performance, and reduce risk and/or injury through better design of the direct environment e.g. a workplace. Wellness programs should be evidence-based and measured against a specific set of objectives. Poor design and incorrect implementation of a wellness program can be costly, ineffective and a waste of time. Where-as effective wellness programs, like those created by The Wellness Workshop, can increase productivity and performance, create a positive corporate/member culture and reduce turnover.
