A healthy workplace can lead to numerous benefits for employees and employers. Promoting and supporting health in the workplace makes good business sense. Employees feel valued, productivity and engagement is increased and they are more likely to show long term commitment creating a better return on investment.

Healthy Worker = Healthy Business

Gateway Health collaborates with workplaces to support the health and wellbeing of employees through the:

Victorian Achievement Program

Healthy Workplaces Program

Achievement Program

The Achievement Program is a free, state-wide health and wellbeing framework that has been jointly developed by the Department of Health and Human Services and Cancer Council Victoria. The framework provides guidance on how to build healthy working environments and cultures.
The focus is across five health areas:

  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Physical activity
  • Healthy eating
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol

The Achievement Program provides your workplace with access to support and resources via an online portal, which allows you to work at your own pace and track your progress using:
• Evidence-based guidance and tools
• Connect with health promotion experts for ongoing support
• Select health priorities that suit your service
• Build on your existing health and wellbeing initiatives.
