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.

Wellbeing Month

In New Zealand, we often pride ourselves for being leaders in workplace happiness and having a cruisy, laid back office culture. For the most part our companies are relaxed, our work days are flexible, and our ties can be casually tossed aside on a Friday. Yet some international big players such as Fit-Bit, Airbnb, Google and Twitter go to extreme lengths to make sure their employees are taken care of. We take a look at some the best examples of wellness policies from around the globe.
