A healthy win

Barwon Water's employee health and wellbeing program won the ‘Health promoting workplace’ award at last night's Geelong Business Excellence Awards.

The program — managed by our in-house Health, Safety and Wellbeing Team — has been expanding over the past 12 months and incorporates a number of initiatives, including:

  • work health checks
  • 10,000 steps activity challenge
  • stretch and strengthen sessions
  • mental health workshops
  • nutrition workshops
  • SunSmart awareness campaigns
  • breast health awareness sessions
  • and more.

We are committed to ensuring the physical and mental health of our staff and these initiatives form an important part of our workplace culture.

Barwon Water Chairman Michael King proudly accepted the award at a gala dinner last night.

The Geelong Business Excellence Awards recognise organisations that have achieved business excellence in the region. The judging panel comprises experienced business leaders and many past winners.

We would like to extend our congratulations to the other worthy winners, and our thanks to the event sponsors and Geelong Chamber of Commerce for co-ordinating the awards.
