Kareena Private Launches Wellness Program for Staff
Feb 02, 2012
Kareena Private Hospital has taken a proactive approach to promoting their employees’ health and wellbeing by launching a Wellness Program for staff, which includes a range of activities and initiatives to support staff health, personal development and community contributions.
Kicking off with a ‘Week of Wellness’ activities from Monday 13th February 2012, Kareena Private will celebrate the launch of their Wellness Program by providing mini massages, fitness classes, healthy BBQ lunches and free health checks.
The ‘Week of Wellness’ Launch will centre around a Wellness Expo with exhibitors from Hesta Super Fund, Bupa, 50+, Breast Screen NSW, Credit Union Australia, ME Bank, Seniors National Australia, Australian Diabetes Council, Mental Health Association, Fitness First and PPCW.
Triple Olympic medallist Matt Welsh will make a special guest appearance at the Wellness Expo providing staff with an insight into key factors for optimal wellness and sustainable ways to achieve it.
Kareena Private CEO, Steven Schultze said wellness programs for staff recognise that workplaces can assist staff to attain a better balance between their career and personal life. He said the programs are based on a holistic view of wellness within the workplace from occupational health and safety through to health promotion.
“Putting in place good wellness programs for staff will result in a win- win for employees and the organisation. For employees, it is about improved health status, job satisfaction and quality of life. For the organisation, it is about reduced injury rates and being an employer of choice” Mr Schultze said.
“The Wellness programs we have launched provide a comprehensive range of initiatives across the wellness spectrum starting with health assessments and extending to financial wellness, employee assistance programs, flu vaccinations and much more. This program aims to meet the needs and interest of all of our staff at Kareena Private.”
Wellness weeks run annually in February, June and October with themes such as Safe Work and Financial Wellness Week.
