Health & Wellbeing

Supporting our employees throughout their time with us.

Our Health and Wellbeing Initiatives

At Version 1 we want our employees to be healthy and live well. We strive to promote a culture of positive health and wellbeing daily. We invest in a strong culture of wellness through programs, activities and resources that help our employees create their own journey toward optimal wellbeing. Take a look at some of our initiatives below.

Our Wellbeing Framework

The overarching principle here at Version 1 is our Wellbeing framework which is based on the ‘Strength in Balance‘ theme. It encapsulates all aspects of a Version 1 employee’s health and wellbeing. Health and wellbeing are necessary to ‘Empower our People’ and ensure a sustainable career in Version 1!

The holistic nature of our Wellbeing model emphasises the importance of variety and balance and staying on top of your ‘A’ game by managing each aspect of yourself the best you can. This model highlights the importance of variety and balance. It shows how certain areas of an employee’s life may impact other areas if they are neglected. The 5 segments of the Wellbeing Wheel include Sense of Purpose, Financial Management, Physical Health, Mental Wellbeing and Social Connections. These are explained in more detail below.

“The mental health training was really insightful, engaging and beneficial. I learnt that you don’t need to be an expert or medical professional to help a colleague who may be struggling; it was good to realise we can all play a role in supporting each other in dealing with the stresses of life.”
- Paul Bullen, Principal License Consultant
