Staff Wellbeing Activity Program (SWAP)

The Staff Wellbeing and Activity Program (SWAP) provides opportunities for staff to participate in a range of wellbeing activities.  These activities are focussed on four key wellbeing areas: physical activity, general health, mental health and nutrition.

Physical activity programs can be held locally within departments or at Monash Sport. The aim of these programs is to help improve staff wellbeing, productivity and morale through low-cost programs targeted at all ages and fitness levels.

SWAP mindfulness and essence programs along with nutrition, diabetes and health and information sessions can also be arranged on request.
