Health and Wellbeing Profile

The Cancer Council WA workplace health and wellbeing program has been running since 2016 and is coordinated by the Human Resources team. 


The Cancer Council WA's health and wellbeing program is coordinated by the Human Resources team and is supported by all levels of senior management. The Human Resources team undertook HWWA Coordinator Training (both the online module and then face to face training workshop) before carrying out staff consultation to measure staff awareness and knowledge of the four SNAP lifestyle risk factors (smoking, nutrition, alcohol and physical activity). In addition, a review of workplace policies and past activities was undertaken. Results from this review and staff consultation were used to guide the development of a Workplace Health and Wellbeing Action Plan
