New award category
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.
People seeking more information or keen to fill out a nomination form can visit their council’s website or call into council offices in each shire.
