Board Member - Not for Profit Health Initiative
Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide
About Healthy Workplaces Ltd.
Healthy Workplaces Ltd. is the driving force behind Tour de Office, an annual workplace cycle for charity. The event takes place for one week in September, with staff, clients and friends or participating businesses cycling 30 minute legs on a stationary bike in the office. Riders raise sponsorship dollars through the website, www.tourdeoffice.com
Tour de Office was established in 2011 as a philanthropic event to not only raise money for charity, but to encourage desk-bound workers to get out of their chairs and onto a bike, all in the name of promoting a healthy workplace.
From humble beginnings, Tour de Office has grown from an in-house charity event to a corporate social responsibility platform that has been adopted by external companies including Deloitte, McDonalds, Ernst & Young, Flight Centre and Super Retail Group. We would like many more Australian companies to get involved in this event which is great not only for team building, but for fostering client relationships and building a reputation as an employer of choice.
