WayAhead Workplaces (formerly Workplace Health Promotion Network) was formed in October 2006 in Sydney. Our goal is to improve the health of Australia’s working population. We do this by resourcing and supporting organisations to create healthy workplaces. While mental health issues are key concerns within Australian workplaces, the WayAhead Workplaces aims to resource its members in relation to all aspects of employee wellbeing.
Our members are located across Australia, with our primary networks and meetings in Sydney and Brisbane. We welcome members from any organisation that has an interest in and commitment to workplace health and wellbeing. Find out more about our members and membership benefits.
In 2017 WayAhead Workplaces celebrates its 10th birthday and took the step forward in its journey – to the change the name to “WayAhead Workplaces”.
