The City of Swan is Perth's largest local government area, with a sprawling and unique blend of residential, commercial, industrial and rural land stretching over 1,044 square kilometres.
With a forecast population of more than 145,000 residents in 2017, the City is a thriving hub of economic growth, consisting of some of the fastest growing suburbs in Western Australia, regional centres, several national parks and reserves, major commercial and industrial areas and historically important town sites and rural areas.
The City of Swan is led by Chief Executive Officer, Mike Foley who operates under the guidance of the elected Council. Council delivers infrastucture and services to the community through four divisions: Operations, Planning and Development, Community Wellbeing and Stakeholder Relations, each of which is led by an Executive Manager. The City’s staff members work to the shared values of respect, excellence, accountability and leadership.
In 2014, the City of Swan invested in a structured workplace health promotion program. The City is dedicated to creating a healthy workplace because it helps create a proactive work environment, assists in reducing health risks and improves personal and professional outcomes for staff.
The program is centred on three themes – Healthy Mind, Healthy Body and Healthy Lifestyle. The City has a Health and Wellbeing Committee which coordinates a range of health promoting initiatives across these three themes to maintain and promote a healthy workplace. Such initiatives include:
The City continuously evaluates the success of their program and is always looking for new initiatives which will add value to their workforce as a whole.
"As a City, we are committed to providing a healthy work environment which supports our greatest asset, our people. With appropriate resourcing and support we have seen our wellbeing program grow into an essential part of employees’ work life balance and improve the culture of our workforce as a whole. We will continue to improve and develop programs which we think will add value and we seek feedback from our own staff on an ongoing basis to ensure programs are relevant. Our investment in a wellbeing program has already resulted in a healthier and more engaged workforce."
