Industry / Organisation
A healthy workplace is one where workers and managers continually improve processes to protect and promote the health, safety and well-being of all employees. Improving health and well-being can increase employee job satisfaction and engagement. It has also been shown to improve productivity, reduce sick leave and increase employee retention.
Being physically active, combined with eating healthy, nutritious food, means you can enjoy the lifestyle you want. Sporting clubs can assist by providing opportunities to be physically active. To be successful, sporting groups must maintain a positive culture and provide an environment in which social connections among members will flourish.
A SEA Change Task Team can be formed temporarily to accomplish a task or to be engaged in some collective action.
Champions / Ambassadors
Everyone has a part to play in making Portland a community where healthy eating and being active is easy. Every single person can make one, sustainable change. Together, we can make a difference. Become a SEA Change ‘Champion’. Share what you are doing, excite others to do what you are doing.
