The WayAhead Workplaces membership is for anyone who has responsibility for, or is interested in, promoting employee health and wellbeing within their own organisation. This includes professionals working in human resources, occupational health and safety, employee health and wellbeing, injury management, return to work, learning and development, nurses and psychologists.
Our membership network includes organisations from the legal and financial services, health, community and education sectors, private, government and charity organisations. Our meetings are held in Sydney and Brisbane but we have an online-only membership option for those who work outside of those areas across Australia. See who our members are.
Quarterly Meetings in Sydney or Brisbane
Your membership entitles you to attend our quarterly, half-day meetings in Sydney or in Brisbane, held in February, April, September and November. The purpose of these meetings is to provide a range of expert guest speakers covering various topics on workplace health and wellbeing over the course of the year. These meetings are a great way for members to keep up to date with the research and work going on in the sector. They provide examples of best practice, opportunities to learn from case studies and opportunities to regularly network with like-minded peers.
Annual Members’ Forum in Sydney
The Annual Members’ Forum is an all-day event in June where we invite guest speakers to present on our chosen theme of the day. We also encourage some of our members to present case studies of their work. The second half of the day has an interactive element such as a panel discussion or round table discussion which provides attendees the chance to ask questions of our expert panelists. This event is a great opportunity to mix with people from different sectors and share ideas.
Online Workplace Resource Library
We have spent a great deal of time developing our online Workplace Health Resource Library to ensure our members have access to the latest information and tools to help them do their best possible work in workplace health and wellbeing. Our Library includes all our speakers’ presentations from both the Sydney and Brisbane network meetings from the last 13 years. We also have a yearly Conferences Calendar and Events Calendar to help you plan your year. We have more than 900 resources listed and members are able to browse selections of articles, blogs, case studies, workplace health tools, reports and research or search by 25 different topic tags such as stress and resilience, leadership and management, sleep, workplace health and safety and mental health.
All our members are encouraged to sign up to our eNewsletter. This is a way that we communicate with our members between our meetings. We draw your attention to any new developments with our program, events in the sector, conference discounts and the latest research and resources.
Conference and Event Discounts
We approach our contacts to negotiate the best deal we can for our members to attend the latest workplace health and wellbeing workshops and conferences, particularly around Sydney and Brisbane where our networks are based. Conferences can be expensive so the discounts are intended to make attending them more affordable for you, and to enable our members to have access to best practice and research in a particular area. They are also great networking opportunities for you to connect with other people in the sector outside of the WayAhead Workplaces network.
