Health, Safety & Wellbeing

Embedding a culture of care and wellbeing.

Our aim is to enrich the health, safety and wellbeing of our people across all areas of life. We embed a culture of care across Westpac through the support we have available for our people.

Wellbeing for us spans across the five key areas of Family & Community, Finances, Health, Values, and Work, extending our support for employees beyond the workplace.

Support services

Our people and their families have access to a free Employee Assistance Program (EAP) which offers services such as coaching for people leaders, counselling support, nutrition advice and  guiding financial wellbeing. Our Employee Care team provides support to our people in remaining healthy and well for whole of life.

Benefits and resources

We have toolkits, videos and programs dedicated to support the wellbeing of our people and their families. We also offer discounts on wellbeing products and services, free flu vaccinations each year, one ‘Lifestyle and Wellbeing’ paid day off per year, and one Volunteering day.

Learning & development

To enable us to foster a culture of care, all employees are required to complete health, safety and wellbeing training and are encouraged to set annual wellbeing goals. Our leaders are also coached on the best ways to engage their team around wellbeing.

A mentally healthy workplace

We are committed to ensuring a mentally healthy workplace. We have engaged psychologists to develop guides, toolkits and training on a range of topics to support the mental health of employees and leaders, including a ‘Let’s Talk Mental Health Toolkit’ for employees, leaders and carers. We also provide training and resources to assist our people in supporting customers experiencing vulnerabilities.

Working environment

Our workplace standards and fit-outs of our offices and branches are best practice. We are a member of the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) and support the Green Star Design and fit-out guidelines. Our CBD corporate workplaces support our hybrid way of working and enable our people to collaborate, connect, innovate and focus. Visit our Locations page for more information on our workplaces.
