It’s not just athletes who need to lead a healthy life, both mentally and physically to be their best on the field.  

Did you know: 

  • There is a measurable link between a person’s health and lifestyle and how productive they are at work.  
  • Employees with poor overall health status are nine times more likely to request sick days compared to healthy employees.  
  • Staff stress and morale is linked to absenteeism and lack of productivity. 

Whether you are looking for a health and wellbeing program that features high profile speakers who motivate and inspire, or more practical and educational modules, the Western Bulldogs can tailor a program to suit your workplace needs.   

Bounce Back Program

Bounce Back will shine a light on real stories of mental health, strength and resilience and how they can be applied to life and the workplace.  

It takes lessons learned from AFL great Bob Murphy, survivor turned White Ribbon advocate Simone O’Brien, renowned mental health ambassador Jake Edwards and leading workplace mental health consultant Anna Feringa of EML.   

Our speakers will inspire you, as they share their hard-earned lessons in facing their unique, and often confronting, life experiences.  

We all face challenges in our work and personal lives, but it’s how we respond that defines us. This is a chance to bounce back.
