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, counselling, nutrition advice and legal and financial assistance. Our Health, Safety & Wellbeing team provides support to our people in remaining healthy and well at work.

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 a 12 month wellbeing action plan. 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 partnered with Heads Up to develop our ‘Let’s Talk Mental Health Toolkit’ for employees, leaders and carers. We provide training and have a variety of education and support resources available to all employees to promote mental health. We also offer tools to assist our people in supporting customers with mental health concerns.

Working environment

Our workplace standards and fit-outs 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 locations are designed with agile working principles. Visit our Locations page for more information.
