As most businesses are aware, a happy, healthy workforce is good for business, but how do you make workplace wellbeing part of business as usual?
You could start with this free online tool, Good4Work, which was designed for NZ businesses by a national group of public health agencies.
Their research showed that while businesses valued the wellbeing of their employees and were keen to embed positive practices into their workplace, they often didn’t know where to start.
They would welcome a product that had “done the homework for them” and “took the thinking out of workplace well-being.”
Good4Work starts with a quiz to help you rate your workplace and identify priorities for improvement. You will then be provided with suggested strategies and resources to help you take action, all for free.
The Commerce Commission has released yesterday on its website a Business guide to Unfair Contract Terms, aimed at raising awareness amongst businesses on their obligations under the unfair contract terms provisions of the Fair Trading Act.
Several quick guides and videos are available online. They address topics such as variation of the contract, cancellation, subscription and automatic rollovers, and tips for writing terms and conditions. While the animations are primarily addressed to businesses, we expect that consumers will also find these a useful resource.
