Corporate health services for businesses

CBCHS offers businesses within the City of Kingston, free and confidential support to design and implement strategies which improve employee health and business outcomes.

Why focus on health in your business? 

Workplaces that provide a healthy environment and culture are more likely to have satisfied and productive employees, and lower costs associated with sick leave, injury (including mental health injury), illness and staff turnover.

Effective workplace health programs don’t have to increase business costs. Incorporating a health and wellbeing focus in business Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) programs can help your business spot and address the relationship between safety, work environment and the health of employees.

CBCHS Health Promotion team is funded to help you do this using no cost/low cost, proven strategies which promote organisational development, with a view to improve productivity and create a healthy workplace climate.

For every $1 invested in creating a healthy workplace environment, your business could save up to $5.81 through long-term improvements in business outcomes:

  • Increased employee productivity by 300%
  • Decreased absenteeism and injury
  • Retaining and attracting talented workers. Three in five Victorian employees consider an employer’s attitude to health when looking for a new job.
  • Reduce unhealthy worker “risk factors” such as smoking, drinking alcohol, insufficient physical activity and excess body weight which can lead to workers taking up to 9 times more sick leave than healthy workers.
