Shivaun Conn Profile

Workplace Health

Shivaun has over 18 years experience in workplace health – designing, delivering, evaluating and leading health programs for hundreds of companies in Australia.

Her communication & project management skills combined with an expert knowledge of health & behaviour change places her in a leading position to guide your business to world class health performance.

Investing in your employee’s health minimises risks associated with poor physical and mental health, such as absenteeism, poor productivity and a disengaged culture.

Organisations that implement health and wellbeing strategies can reduce their employees’ health risks by up to 56% (1) and on average, can expect a positive return on investment (ROI) of 2.3 (2). That is, for every dollar spent, an average of $2.30 in benefits to be gained for the organisation.

The choice for leading organisations is not whether to invest in workplace health but who to partner with to bring about sustainable change.
