CITY of South Perth has received Gold Standard recognition from Healthier Workplace WA for its demonstrated commitment in workplace health and wellbeing.
The City has had a preventive workplace health program in place since early 2000.
Chief executive Geoff Glass said investing in the health and wellbeing of employees was one of the highest priorities in the City’s workforce planning.
“Around 75 per cent of employees participate in one or more initiatives from our annual health and wellbeing program which is a terrific outcome,” he said.
This year the City aims to lift participation rates as well as introduce targeted initiatives.
