The Project – RBA Wellbeing Collab Update
What is the Rosebank Wellbeing Collab?
Research shows that those businesses that invest in workplace wellbeing are more financially successful.
But we know it can be tough for businesses to invest in workplace wellbeing when faced with all the everyday demands of running a business.
That’s why we started the Rosebank Wellbeing Collab in 2020. In partnership with Healthy Families Waitākere, we wanted to collaborate with Rosebank businesses to create workplace wellbeing solutions for the whole of the Rosebank business community.
As a New Zealand first, this is an important opportunity for the Rosebank Business Association and its members as part of the COVID19 recovery efforts.
Our Journey To Get Here
Healthy Families Waitākere funded a codesign process in 2020 to help us understand the challenges and opportunities for workplace wellbeing in Rosebank.
We started by forming a Codesign Leadership Group with representatives from Rosebank businesses, and government and community agencies.
Through a series of interviews, meetings and workshops, this is what we heard.
We now have a collaborative plan of action and a Codesign Leadership Group that will oversee the implementation of these collaborative initiatives. You are welcome to join one of the Working Groups for any of the initiatives.
