Abstract

Health and wellbeing continues to be a workplace issue of global significance. Support for creating healthier workplaces is widespread and largely supported by organisations; however, performance outcomes from health and wellbeing programs are rarely measured. This absence of performance measures, together with poor attendance means that health and wellbeing programs often fall short of their potential impact. This paper uses the findings from two vastly different management and leadership development programs for human services employees living in geographically remote communities to support the notion that integrating health and wellbeing initiatives into existing leadership programs can indirectly support improved health and wellbeing for managers. Ultimately, this contributes to improved health and wellbeing, work performance, workplace culture, and organisational success.
