Introducing Healthy Workplace Initiative

Recognising Excellence in Healthy Workplaces

HWI is a proven strategic process that provides a road map to the destination of a healthy and well workplace and recognises excellence in the field of health promotion. WELLCOSA established the HWI to assist employers in creating a corporate culture that encourages and supports employee health through worksite wellness initiatives.

HWI utilities resources, training and personal coaching to help deliver a comprehensive and consistent workplace wellness initiative. It is a program available exclusively to WELLCOSA members.

Our processes are proven to reduce the costly and time-consuming mistakes many internal wellness committees make when attempting to deliver wellness at work.
