The cost of poor work / life balance is high for both the employer and the employee. HSG provides a holistic framework of work / life balance tips and strategies to align your company’s goals with each individual’s health and wellbeing.

Our Work / Life Balance Program Explained
We can customise an effective and cost-efficient work / life balance program to suit your organisation’s requirements. Our work / life training course can be delivered as a full day workshop, half day workshop or as a monthly series of “Lunch ‘n’ Learn” one hour sessions – our most popular option. They can be delivered on-site or via live video webinar.
When putting together your customised work / life balance training program we will discuss your specific requirements and consider the following:
- Audience (executives, senior managers, team leaders, call centre staff etc.)
- Different methods of presentation to suit various learning styles
- Would you like us to stream into another program or initiative?
- What aims and objectives would you like to achieve?
- What outcomes or results would you like your staff to walk away with?
- What type of intervention is this (cultural change, organisational strategy or policy, management objective, light relief, etc.)
Topics covered in the workshops may include:
- Defining Work / Life Balance
- Core Life Areas – Self, Work, Social, Community and Core Work / Life Principles
- Identifying Your Strengths
- How To Manage Time Effectively
- How to Create Healthy Relationships for Personal and Career Growth
- How to Manage your Energy and Maintain Good Health
Practical activities may include:
- Work / Life Balance Evaluation
- Roundtable Discussion of Habits that Contribute Towards a Balanced Life
- Envisioning Your Future & Goal Planning
- Discussion of various strategies for equilibration
We deliver our work / life balance training either virtually via online webinar, or at your premises in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Hobart, Geelong, Newcastle, Wollongong and other regional areas. We also provide organisations with keynote speakers who are experts in a wide range of inspiring wellbeing topics.

Become an Employer of Choice!
Your organisation will also enjoy the benefits of implementing a Work/Life Balance program.
Attract your Ideal Candidates
In a competitive labour market, organisations need to be smart about how they attract good candidates to fill vacancies. Today’s employees need more than just job descriptions. Emphasising your company’s culture and work / life balance initiatives will help you reach your ideal employee.
Increased Staff Retention and Reduced Turnover
Factors such as morale and loyalty weigh heavily on whether a prized worker decides to stay or is headhunted by a competitor. Implementing good work / life balance initiatives in the workplace will sustain a vibrant, healthy and passionate workforce and help you retain your valued employees.
What does it really cost to replace a team member? Even in industries with higher than average turnover, it’s easy to underestimate the price your business pays. Direct costs include bookkeeping and running the hiring process, indirect costs include the lack of productivity during vacancy and training the new recruit, and your business also loses intellectual capital. While staff turnover can never be completely eradicated, you can make a positive impact by implementing family-friendly policies and striving for a healthy, happy and supportive workplace.
Government research (Comcare, 2010) reports that corporate wellness programs improved employee morale, engagement and retention.
Expand Into a Corporate Wellness Program
Many employers of choice are including work / life balance programs as just one part of a complete corporate wellness program that includes other elements such as seated massage, meditation, yoga classes, tai chi classes, and other similar wellbeing sessions. HSG can help provide you with expert advice to begin your corporate wellness program.
