The workplace program is now well underway.
A diverse group of organisations have either begun or expressed interest in the program, including Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads.
Group facilitator Leanne Loch who delivered the program to Australia Post, says My health for life was well suited to workplaces,
“It appeals to employers because it is evidence-based and they want to know it has substance and is not just based on good intentions,’’ she said.
“The program is motivating. It does not take long for good relationships to form across the groups and people are spurred on when they see it work and have success.’’
The workplace program is free to businesses and their employees and is now available across Queensland, so workplaces are encouraged to register their interest now.
“There has been quite a lot of research into workplace programs,’’ Leanne said.
“Benefits are far ranging and can include increased productivity, staff retention and reported increases in staff motivation.
“My health for life is a genuine evidence-based prevention program and it doesn’t give lip-service to wellness or healthy lifestyles. That is why I enjoy delivering it so much.
“When people commit, it gets results.’’
