Office of Parliamentary Counsel
Congratulations to the Office of Parliamentary Counsel (OPC) for upgrading to Healthier Work Silver Status Recognition! Moving into the second year of the program, the OPC Health and Wellbeing Group were looking to build on some of the great achievements in regards to health and wellbeing during their first healthier work year as well as continue to bring in new ideas based on staff feedback! They will continue to promote the Employee Assistance Program, will take part in another walking challenge, continue with masseuse visits on a fortnightly basis with staff paying for the cost of appointments and continue providing healthier snack and drink options through the social club. Some new activities/strategies included organising mindfulness training sessions, staff presentations, seminars or workshops on stress management, organise health checks in the workpalce (e.g. blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, back health), and encourage staff to participate in fundraising events as a team! Well done to the Office of Parliamentary Counsel!!
