Good planning helps to ensure a successful program. The phrase: “failing to plan, is planning to fail” is true for any project, including a workplace health and wellbeing program. There are some crucial elements within the planning process, that when complete will give your program the best chance of making a difference to the health and wellbeing of your workers. These include: gaining management support, identifying the priorities for your workplace health and wellbeing program, and consulting with staff.


Once you have decided on the priorities for your workplace, you can begin to implement your program. A successful workplace health and wellbeing program considers three key areas. These are:

  • Policy 
  • Supportive environments 
  • Education and activities 

It’s best practice to have a combination of strategies covering all three elements. This way, you will have maximum impact and will be more likely to see long lasting effects on the health/behaviour of workers.


Reviewing your workplace health and wellbeing program is very important as it helps you determine if your strategies have been successful and if you have met your program goals and objectives.
