We’ve been challenging low impact employee wellness initiatives for over 25 years. Our model is better and we achieve better outcomes than the industry average*. Our results cover multiple industry sectors, many of which have significant barriers to effective engagement. Sectors include rail, shipping, transport, manufacturing, mining, office, construction, local government, warehousing, distribution and logistics.
How do we do it? By targeting the hard to change people, with engaging content and practical lifestyle strategies that can be easily applied. That’s the Health By Design difference.
*Please note, the engagement figure above is ‘average monthly engagement’ across a 12-month period. HBD methodology indicates that the minimum required touch point frequency to elicit sustainable behaviour change is 4-6weeks.

Real People, Real Results
Health by Design’s workplace programs are recognised as the most results driven in the industry. Location, logistics, culture or gender are not barriers to success. See some of our ‘Real People, Real Results’ stories below:
Health by Design offered skin checks to all staff across one employer site in WA as part of their health and wellbeing program. As a result of this service, a staff member from the Bunbury site was told to see his skin specialist for follow up immediately and not to delay. He has subsequently had 2 skin lesions removed which were both found to be cancerous. His doctor was impressed that skin checks were offered by the company and that these growths were detected.
One employee in the construction industry has lost a massive 20kg in just 4 months. This employee was motivated to lose weight after experiencing a health scare and through wanting to be a healthier father to his children and healthier husband to his wife.
To achieve this weight loss result he started walking every night after work, reduced his meal portions and focused on eating more balanced, nutritious meals. As a result of his improved behaviors and weight loss his overall fitness and wellbeing have dramatically improved.
He feels he has been given a new lease on life and is able to spend more time outdoors with his family.
An employee presented a complex challenge as they had multiple barriers, internal and external, stopping them from making positive changes to their health and wellness. By working through this over the course of the year, the employee began to focus more of their energy on their exercise and eating habits. They changed from exercising only once a week to exercising with their partner 5 times a week. They have also changed their diet to include a healthy breakfast daily and eating smaller, more regular meals. Since implementing these changes they have reduced their weight by 5kg, their body fat % by 3% and their waistline has reduced by 4cm.
