Our vision: Lower Hutt – NZ’s healthiest people

Hutt Valley investing in workplace health and wellness

26 April 2017

More and more workplaces are realising that health and wellness is an investment, not just a cost. The benefits of a healthy workforce include less sick leave, reduced stress levels, better staff morale and increased productivity.

Workplaces that have a reputation for fostering a healthy culture become employers of choice and can gain a real advantage over their competitors.

The free Workplace Health and Wellness Expo will host a range of community and government organisations, as well small and large businesses to provide information, resources and advice on how Hutt Valley businesses can support the health and wellness of their staff and community.

In an adjoining room there will also be short speaking sessions. The main presentation will be from WorkSafe NZ on work related health, risks and the need for a systematic approach.  The presentation will also cover tools to help businesses with work related health matters.
