The Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley's Workplace Health and Wellbeing Program has been running for nearly 6 years and is coordinated by the Human Resources team. In May 2019, the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley became a Bronze Recognised Healthy Workplace.
Following support for the development and expansion of the Workplace Health and Wellbeing Program from Executive Management, the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley appointed a dedicated Safety and Wellbeing Officer to plan and coordinate wellbeing related activities; who had successfully completed the online HWWA Coordinator Training. To gain support for the program from both Executive Management and employees, the shire established a business case and carried out face to face and electronic consultation with all staff across the shire.
In addition, a review of shire workplace procedures and past activities was undertaken. Results from this review, in combination with staff consultation, were used to guide the development of a new and improved Workplace Health and Wellbeing Program.
