Health and wellbeing

We are committed to providing a supportive and safe work environment. We provide several support initiatives to improve our employees’ physical, mental and social wellbeing.

Health and Wellbeing Program

Our Health and Wellbeing Program is designed to encourage and support a healthier workplace and healthy lifestyle choices. A seasonal program of events is available to all employees each year.

Healthier Work Accreditation

We hold a Platinum+ accreditation under the ACT Government’s Healthier Work Program. The program helps workplaces to develop and implement programs, policies and practices that lead to healthier workplaces and healthy lifestyle changes for employees.

Mental Health First Aid Network

Our Mental Health First Aid Network is made up of volunteer employees who are trained to provide initial informal support to other employees in the workplace, complementing support available from Human Resources and Workplace Health and Safety. Mental Health First Aid Officers can also complement formal support services, like Employee Assistance Programs.
