The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Grampians Pyre­nees Pri­mary Care Part­ner­ship has wel­comed a new cat­e­gory for this year’s Neoen Grampians Pyre­nees Busi­ness Awards.

The part­ner­ship, with the In­te­grated Health Pro­mo­tion and Preven­tion Net­work, is spon­sor­ing a Health Work­place Award.

Health pro­mo­tion co-or­di­na­tor Lau­ren Dempsey said she was ex­cited by the in­clu­sion of the cat­e­gory.

“With peo­ple spend­ing up to one third of their life at work, work­places have an im­por­tant role to play in sup­port­ing good health of staff,” she said.

“The award recog­nises the com­bined ef­forts of em­ploy­ers and work­ers to en­cour­age and sup­port healthy life­style habits, mak­ing healthy choices at work the easy choices.”

This award recog­nises or­gan­i­sa­tions or busi­nesses that have a strong fo­cus on the health and well­be­ing of their staff.

“Whether it be phys­i­cal health, men­tal health, ed­u­ca­tion or aware­ness, lo­cal busi­nesses or or­gan­i­sa­tions can nom­i­nate for this award,” Ms Dempsey said.

The awards, cel­e­brat­ing the achieve­ments of busi­nesses in North­ern Grampians and Pyre­nees shires and Ararat Ru­ral City, cul­mi­nate with a pre­sen­ta­tion night at St Ar­naud.

En­tries for var­i­ous cat­e­gories close on Mon­day.
