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 pathways for our team to broaden or deepen their skills, we encourage our Team Member’s to reach their full potential.
Work Based Learning
Swisse understands the importance of harnessing and maximising internal talent. Some opportunities for this include:
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.
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 LinkedIn Learning.
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 training sessions delivered by internal experts to share knowledge that is specifically relevant to Swisse and the H&H Group teams.
To support our Swisse teams in bringing their whole self to work, a range of sessions are offered to provide education and inspiration. An important focus is the mental and emotional health of team members, offering support through our employee assistance program, Benestar.
The CLED!heads program is all about helping the teams to live the Swisse philosophy of Celebrate Life Every Day! CLED is about having a mindset that is both optimistic and grateful, which in turn increases an individual’s empathy and resilience.
Swisse works with external specialists areas to facilitate each session. The content focuses on concepts such as resilience, coping skills, vulnerability and growth mindset. Team members are encouraged to invite family and friends to CLED!heads sessions, so the wider Swisse community can benefit.
Coaching and mentoring
Our team members have access to coaching and mentoring, to support and enhance their own personal development. Coaches provide bespoke programs that focus on areas such as personal branding, presence, communication styles and goal achievement. The team also has access to external and internal mentors with extensive business, leadership and sector experience.
Swisse’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. The modules are run monthly and on rotation, to enable new leaders to join program.
