Consolid8 are a Queensland Government recognised 'Healthier. Happier. Workplace'. We have implemented a Wellness Program to value, enhance and protect the health of all Consolid8 employees. As part of the program we changed work practices and environment to make physical, mental and social wellbeing a core focus. A Wellness Committee was formed to execute our Wellness Plan and implement healthy initiatives for the Consolid8 team.
Healthy employees are more productive, take fewer sick days and are more engaged. The foundation of the Consolid8 Workplace Wellness Program is our Healthy People and Healthy Places strategies. These encourage employees to adopt healthy lifestyle behaviours and change the physical, policy and cultural environments to support wellness and healthy choices.
We have implemented ergonomic standing desks which enhance spine health, increase blood flow for better circulation and decrease muscle pain and fatigue.
The team bring in fresh fruit and vegetables every week and blend nutritious smoothies in our office Nutri-bullet. Check our Facebook page for the smoothie of the week.
We encourage our team to make choices to enhance their physical fitness. Every day our 'Stair Group' runs the stairs from Level 5 to ground and back up again.
We have added some beautiful varieties of plants to our office environment. The plants increase oxygen and create a calming effect. We take turns as a team to water and maintain them.
Once a month we get everyone in the team together for a healthy shared lunch and games or activities. Ping pong, mini-golf and minute-to-win-it games are some of our favourites.
We developed a custom bot for Slack Messenger (our internal communications platform) to support the emotional health and wellbeing of the team. Esby is never far away if you need him.
