Corporate

Healthy employees make a healthy workplace – and the benefits of this go far and wide. Our clients tell us their employees have less sick days, better team morale and are more productive at work. And it’s easy to get the ball rolling with our range of corporate health and wellness services.

The free Life! Program makes adopting healthy behaviours a simple and inspiring process for workplaces. It starts with a one-on-one session with each staff member to understand their individual health risks and goals. Then the group sessions kick off with each session covering a variety of evidence-based topics, including healthy eating, proven exercise strategies, losing weight and keeping it off, stress management and improving sleep.

Program, tailored to your workplace setting and free for your staff.

We also offer workplaces a range of wellbeing seminars, including the following topics:

  • Reducing stress in the workplace
  • Managing the wellbeing of an ageing workforce

For a more individually tailored approach, our exercise physiologists and dietitians provide individually customised approaches including health assessments and lifestyle prescription programs for staff. We apply proven strategies, including nutritional modification, functional exercise prescription, and goal setting to achieve a healthier workforce. These programs target each worker’s unique needs as well as your goals as an organisation. We are able to provide a range of group exercise classes to assist with maintaining motivation and adherence to these programs.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to workplace health interventions, so we work with you to tailor our health and wellbeing strategy and service delivery to meet the needs of each individual workplace.
