Getting started

When planning a workplace health program, it can be hard to know where to start. Our toolkit takes you through the steps and provides a practical guide to help you plan, deliver, and evaluate an effective workplace health program.

Building the business case for workplace health

Getting support from management is important as they can commit money and resources to the program to help make it a success. A great way to gain management support is to provide evidence of how investing in workplace health and wellbeing will benefit the business. Our business case for workplace health outlines the benefits of investing in the health and wellbeing of employees.
