Most people spend a lot of time at work. Because of this, what we do at work has a big influence on how healthy we are. The World Health Organization has recognised the workplace as one of the most important settings for health promotion.
If employees are fit, healthy and happy, it's good for them, their families and their colleagues. It's also good for business.
To help you get an idea of how healthy your workplace is, sign up to the Good Health Good Business Employee Health and Wellbeing Survey!
The survey has two purposes:
- The survey can be used by workplaces to assess the overall health and wellbeing of their workforce and identify priority areas for health and wellbeing programs.
- The survey provides individuals with important, confidential feedback about their personal health and wellbeing.
