Category five – Best commitment to work health and wellbeing
During the uncertain days of the Covid pandemic, Queensland's largest family-owned civil contracting company, Shadforth, created a program that reflected their commitment towards improving health and wellbeing for employees—Shadlife.
Employee-driven, Shadlife aims to foster connections between employees and has a holistic approach towards health and wellbeing—including guidance and support (i.e. mental health), healthy lifestyle programs, financial advice, and professional development.
The introduction of Shadlife into everyday life at the organisation has become fundamental to the company's culture, fostering community, teamwork, and connection. Shadlife's comprehensive support and resources are credited with the creation of a happier, healthier, more engaged, and connected workforce.
