WHY WORK AT SWISSE?
Our Wellness pillar is brought to life through a focus on Movement, Nutrition and Mind health. Not only do we invest heavily in enabling these three pillars of health and happiness in our own team members, but it is also reflected in our marketing and communications, including expert advice and blogs on diet and nutrition, exercise and movement, meditation and mindfulness.

LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT
By providing innovative learning pathways for our team to broaden or deepen their skills, explore their strengths and maximise opportunities to grow, we encourage our team member’s to reach their full potential.
WORK BASED LEARNING
H&H understands the importance of harnessing and maximising internal talent. Some opportunities for this include:
- Cross functional project participation: Placing high potential talent in short to medium term projects, to increase their exposure and understanding.
- Secondments: Proactively recruiting for parental leave cover from internal talent.
- Intern program: Recruiting graduate talent with high-demand skill sets for our 12 month intern program.
- Innovative and agile teams training: Teams can participate in workshops to understand and develop more innovative and agile ways of working as well as regular "shark tank" innovation forums.
Given the diversity of technical competencies required across our business units, technical development is provided through external online learning modules, external providers and internal experts.
Online content is available for all team members through our engaging learning Hub – this includes learning modules tailored to work areas, topics and personal and professional development opportunities.
The Swisse Professional Development Assistance (PDA) program allows team members to apply for business support to access external learning. The support could be either financial and/or time off to complete their study. We have partnered with Open Universities Australia to launch the PDA program.
Savvy Sessions are regular training sessions delivered by our internal experts to share knowledge and showcase the work of our great teams. These sessions are tailored to the learning needs of our Swisse and the H&H Group teams.
To support our team members in bringing their whole selves to work, a range of sessions is offered to provide education and inspiration. An important focus is the mental and emotional health of team members, supporting our teams to be happy, healthy and high performing. H&H works with external specialists to facilitate sessions in areas to ensure our team members can thrive. Topics include resilience, creativity and innovation, managing the pace of work, developing a personal leadership brand, vulnerability and growth mindset. We also offer comprehensive support for everyone’s mental health through our Employee Assistance Program, Connect Psych.
COACHING AND MENTORING
Our team members have access to coaching and mentoring, to support and enhance their own personal development. Coaches provide bespoke programs grounded in the Clifton Strengths program that focus on areas such as personal branding, presence, providing feedback, communication styles and goal achievement. The team also has access to external and internal mentors with extensive business, leadership and sector experience.
H&H’s leadership development programs are delivered through the Leadership Collective, which comprises of six modules that all have elements of workshop and online delivery, with follow-up project activity. We also run a program for our Emerging Leaders that leverages the inspiration and expertise of our own leaders.
