Wellness Wise™ Webinar Series 2018: “Work as a prescription for well-being: A human-centred design approach to achieve “Net Positive”” with Sara Pazell

November 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST

There is a constructive social movement underway and that is to design work for health, well-being, and productivity.

The term NET POSITIVE refers to the net benefit of our daily interactions and activities that lead to improvement in our well-being and capabilities. When work is designed well – psychologically, socially, and physically –it can serve as prescription for health and well-being. This requires reverse-engineering efforts to prevent harm (injury and incident) and instead aim for creation of well-being in every imaginable way (underpinned by sound workplace strategy). Thinking in this human-centred way provides for break-through, innovative work practice and a fiercely competitive business strategy. Ultimately, it’s about making work more human-centred.

This seminar will provide you with real-life examples of (human) lifecycle ergonomics  – from recruitment and hire to retire and beyond.

This webinar facilitated by Sara Pazell, Principal Occupational Advisor, Viva! Health at Work, will explore:

  • Why Total Worker Health® is the cornerstone for well-being strategies that are cost-effective and provide a high return on investment
  • Why the NET POSITIVE effect is a guiding principle for workplaces serious about making a difference in the health and well-being of their workforce
  • How designing for diversity contributes to these methods
  • The different skills, resources, and measures required to advance a project versus a program
  • Successful case studies across various industries (white and blue collar)

Leave the webinar inspired to launch an integrated Total Worker Health® program to achieve NET POSITIVE effect in your workplace!
