Members of our Executive Leadership team have changed since last submitting our program for assessment. Our new CEO and Chief Operating Officer have renewed their commitment to the program and are asking us currently to review the whole program and how it going to ensure relevance and benefit for staff. Our CEO has also implemented a Workforce Advisory Group (WAG) of some 20 staff to advise him and staff health and wellbeing is a topic regularly on the agenda. Those WAG members feedback to their work areas and bring ideas to the meeting. Overall we are seeing healthier choices being brought to staff morning teas with at least some fruit or healthy dips being brought in by staff. Staff are actively participating in a variety of activities and actively seek out opportunities to participate by bringing ideas to the Health and Wellbeing Coordinator and champions. Activities have included continuing participation in Bridge to Brisbane, pool passes, yoga etc. Additionally staff have initiated stress reducing activities such as a Chess Tournament and Bring Your Pet (Photo) to Work - where staff brought a shared morning tea and photos of their pets. It was a great morning and we raised $100 for the RSPCA. Staff recognised the calming effect pets can have in the workplace and the joy seeing them brings, so have asked to have a permanent noticeboard in the tea room where pet photos are displayed.
