Executive general manager corporate affairs and organisation development Fiona Lander said the airport was proud to rank in the top 10 of the inaugural HBF Corporate Wellness Leaderboard and would continue to support the health and wellbeing of its employees.

This year the airport has offered a number of wellness programs to staff, including healthy heart checks, skin checks, flu vaccinations, 30-day gym membership and meditation.

‘One initiative we have found to be very popular is the ‘fruit month’.

‘Fresh fruit is delivered twice a week and placed in all staff rooms across the company,’ Ms Lander said.

Ms Lander said the fruit for the platters was purchased from a local supplier in a conscious effort to support local business.
