Wellness at Work
We are committed to helping employees thrive, and helping employers create a workplace that is supportive and productive.
In a report titled ‘Workplace Wellness Programs Can Generate Savings’, Health Affairs reports that every $1 invested in wellness programs saves businesses $3 in healthcare costs. It’s also well known that businesses that prioritise the wellbeing of their staff have lower absentee rates, higher workplace satisfaction scores and better productivity.
With the average Australian spending a third of their life at work, it’s imperative that management teams value the physical and mental health of their employees and understand the link between the wellness of their staff, and the success of their business outcomes.
Wellness programs are fast becoming one of the key ways that forward thinking management teams are supporting their staff to thrive and be their healthiest selves – psychologically, emotionally and physically.
Research has found that workplaces that prioritise health and happiness have staff that:
- are more focussed and productive
- feel satisfied and engaged at work
- feel valued
- have lower rates of absenteeism
- enjoy being at work and have improved levels of morale
- stay in their roles for longer periods of time
- are less stressed and have better mental health
- are physically well
- have higher levels of connection and loyalty to their workplace.

“Georgina has been running classes at work for over a year and I absolutely love it! Prior to that I had never done any kind of yoga or meditation so I didn’t really know what to expect, but from the first class I was hooked! Georgina’s teaching style is so calming and gentle.
It’s exactly what I need to de-stress, unwind + relax after a long day.
I have now incorporated yoga and mindfulness into my weekly routine at home and it has had such a positive impact on my general health and wellbeing. Georgina’s knowledge and passion for wellness is so inspiring and it has really changed my outlook on self-care. Just the simple act of breathing and being more aware of the breath is so powerful and has helped me to turn my focus inwards and be kinder to myself.”
What does a Wellness at Work session look like?
Starting at $120, price will vary depending on session length, travel requirements and number of sessions booked.
Many companies invest in classes for employees as part of their health and wellness strategy, subsidising the cost of classes fully or partially. If you choose to offer a partial-subsidy, you are responsible for coordinating employee payments.
