The wellbeing of your people is deliberately integrated into how your workplace manages, designs, arranges and carries out its work.
The physical environment and facilities in your workplace are designed to maximise the health and wellbeing of your people.
The people in your workplace are a team. They are supported to connect, stop and take notice of themselves, each other and their environment.
Your commitment to wellbeing is visible and talked about from the boardroom to the breakroom.
This is how work is arranged, delegated and carried out. It includes task allocation, task variability, work schedules and work load.
This could include flexible working hours, working from home, location of work and time in lieu.
Your people work as a team. Their support for each other may include mentoring and buddying, negotiation, relationship and conflict resolution skills.
Your people are given fair, appropriate and timely feedback on their performance. Your leaders and managers acknowledge your people and say 'thankyou'.
Your workplace looks to sharpen skills, introduce new concepts and knowledge to enhance the performance of your people.
This includes things like annual and sick leave, switching off technology and mobile devices, eating away from desks or work areas, and movement and stretch activity.
Consider design of spaces, facilities and equipment, cleaning and maintenance, noise, lighting, temperature and other work-related health risks.
This could include having facilities such as lockers, bike racks, showers, fleet bicycles; work-space design, such as stairs and the positioning of equipment such as water coolers; and the equipment available, such as standing stations.
This means extending beyond legislative requirements and making outdoor areas and vehicles completely smokefree.
This might include a fridge, microwave, cutlery, and break area. For those who frequently travel or work off site it could be chilly bins, portable cooking appliances, pop-up shade and seats. Consider the availability of water through coolers and chilled water bottles or containers. Consider how your people wash their hands.
This includes the work canteen, catered food, snack boxes or vending machines. This includes items with wholegrains, fresh fruit, vegetables and salad, limiting deep fried, high sugar and salty foods and drinks. Also consider smaller serving sizes.
This includes considering how your workplace can be flexible during work hours so people can access support and attend appointments. You might also promote services such as stop smoking or counselling support.
This might include opportunities throughout the day, at team meetings and social events for your people to get to know each other. Consider team building days, fun runs, family days, team sports, shared lunch, or competitions.
People are polite and considerate, and give and receive feedback constructively. Bullying and harassment is not tolerated. Our people acknowledge one another's efforts at work and say 'thankyou'.
The way work happens supports people to have the time to take breaks, find enjoyment through the day, and take notice of themselves, each other, and their surroundings.
For work events and meetings we consider activities, shade, drinks (and how they are served), food provided and other needs of your people.

You have a motivated person or people who co-ordinate and lead wellbeing at your workplace. They have the full support of management.
Your people can describe how they have been involved in any decisions that affect them. This might be through representatives from each team or site who meet together, or smaller workplaces might have wellbeing as an item at staff meetings.
Your workplace has processes to get feedback and input from your people about wellbeing. You have a process for responding to feedback received.
Your leaders are effective in supporting your people and are skilled in change and relationship management, conflict resolution, coaching and mentoring.
Your wellbeing practices are included in recruitment and induction discussions and resources.
