What the Achievement Program is
The Achievement Program gives you practical steps and easy-to-use tools and templates to promote and improve health and wellbeing in your workplace.
It’s more than just a program – it provides you with a framework for continuous improvement, enabling you to embed health and wellbeing into your organisation’s culture, having a positive impact on areas like morale, safety and productivity.
You can work at your own pace, and along the way you’ll be recognised by the Victorian Government as a health promoting workplace, supporting your organisation’s position as an employer of choice.
Even if you’re already doing great things to promote and encourage health and wellbeing at work, the Achievement Program helps you build on this and get the best results for your business.
Backed by evidence, it will also help you communicate your ideas to management and get your workplace leaders and colleagues on board with the initiatives you’re proposing. It’s also completely free.
We're thrilled to participate in the Achievement Program. Promoting good health and preventing chronic disease is our core business, and VicHealth is committed to leading by example. The health benefits are compelling but health promotion is good for business too. The Achievement Program has helped us to formalise a lot of existing practices at VicHealth, and introduce some new ways of working. We have achieved the benchmarks for all five health priority areas. As a leading health promotion organisation in Australia, we will continue to show leadership as a healthy workplace and prioritise the health and wellbeing of our workforce.
Healthy workplaces framework
Based on the World Health Organization’s Healthy Workplaces Model, the framework will provide you an easy-to-follow structure to work within, helping you to establish a health and wellbeing culture, as well as identify how you can improve your existing approach.
