Building better lives for Australians through work and health

Work and wellbeing

There have been lots of studies to show that people who go back to work often end up with a shorter recovery time than those who don’t.

The studies have also shown that the longer you have off work, the longer it takes to return to work.

We refer to this as ‘the health benefits of good work’ and as a signatory to the Health Benefits of Good Work, we champion that philosophy.

As we coach you on your journey to recovery, wellbeing and work, we will be sharing more about all the benefits of good work, including social, financial, emotional and physical benefits.

It’s also important to know that you don’t have to wait until you are 100% recovered before you return to work. In fact, recovery at work – with duties and hours that suit your condition – is often the best medicine.
