Happy Birthday Healthworks! August 11th, 2014, by Ken Buckley

Healthworks is 30! Yep, that’s right, we’ve been helping employees improve their health for 30 years.

Since in 1984, Ken has trailblazed his way through the corporate health industry.

Ken built the first fully-managed corporate fitness centre in Australia (for HCF), and started the first ever employee health newsletter, then called Health Yourself, and now known across Australia and the world as Well at Work.

He went on to develop Australia’s first online employee health portal, and was a pioneer in developing integrated employee health programs.

That pioneering attitude is still fighting fit today, as Healthworks continues to introduce new approaches to employee wellness.
