Healthy workers including teachers, lecturers and administration staff are vital to the everyday running of educational workplaces. Staff are likely to be more motivated, productive and take less sick leave when supported by a comprehensive health and wellbeing program.
Aside from the obvious benefits to the work environment, a focus on health and wellbeing creates benefits for the wider community.
"Steph McDonald, Principal at Makybe Rise Primary School said, “The introduction of a comprehensive online staff portal regarding health and wellbeing and updated polices had been key to the early success the program was having”.
"ECU is proud of our healthy workplace recognition. The health and wellness of our staff is vital in us achieving our goals."
Professor Rod Oliver, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, ECU
