Here's the wellbeing policies some of New Zealand's top companies are rolling out for 2019

In 2019, companies are more focused than ever on the health and happiness of their staff, as wellbeing becomes increasingly seen as a key indicator of success along economic value by governments – including our very own – and organisations across the world. This is because while the corporate world has long seen the bottom line as the be all and end all, companies are increasingly taking a more holistic view and recognising that looking after the wellbeing of their people will in turn make their bottom line healthier, too. We reached out to the people in charge of wellbeing policies at some of New Zealand's top companies and asked what they're focused on for this year and why. Here's what FCB, Isthmus, RUSH, Southern Cross, Xero and Trade Me responded.

Anyone who’s spent a significant amount of time in such rooms knows just how disheartening such spaces can be for anxious parents and unwell kids alike.
