Wellbeing
AGL supports the wellbeing and good health of its
people through a range of initiatives, and recognises
the infuence that employee wellbeing can have
on employee engagement and on achieving a high
performance culture.
Approach
AGL has taken an organisational approach that recognises and
actively promotes the value of good health and wellbeing, and
deploys initiatives aimed at maintaining and enhancing the wellbeing
of AGL people.
AGL’s wellbeing framework during FY2011 incorporated five key
wellbeing areas:
>> physical
>> emotional
>> social
>> fnancial
>> creative.
Wellbeing initiatives were delivered under each of the five key
wellbeing areas, ranging from financial learning programs, fitness
programs and influenza vaccinations; to social and book clubs; and
the provision of fresh fruit in the workplace.
In FY2011, AGL undertook a comprehensive benchmark study of
the management of employees’ emotional wellbeing, in order to
prevent psychological-related injuries. Initiatives to address the
recommendations of this study will be implemented in FY2012.
The Employee Assistance Program is another component of the
wellbeing program, and offers a confidential and independent
counselling and advice service for AGL employees and their
immediate family members.
A leader hotline is also available through the Employee Assistance
Program, providing AGL leaders with access to support and coaching
on people management issues. This telephone-based service is
designed to assist leaders to proactively address issues within the
early stages of an issue being identified.
Performance
During FY2011, there were 3,876 participants in the various
Wellbeing initiatives. This means that on average, the majority
of AGL employees participated in two Wellbeing activities
throughout the year.
