 2017 WHAA State Conference Registration Guide

The evolution of health care is ongoing, and the role of the workplace in fostering healthy habits and providing worker education and skills, is ever increasing. In the past 10 years the rise in companies delivering health intervention or promotion programs has increased dramatically. With time has also come maturity of design and strategy. For most companies ticking a box is no longer an acceptable reason to deliver health at work. Companies are looking for highly engaging, interactive, and above all successful initiatives to imbed in the workplace. The 2017 WHAA State conferences will share learning from a broad group of speakers, helping workplaces move forward and further mature their health programs.

 

We look forwarding to welcoming you to a robust agenda, where discussion and questions will be encouraged to help us all learn from each other, and move forward in advancing the role of the workplace towards a healthy future of all Australians.
