2018 Wellness and Wellbeing Expo

CSU recognises the value and importance of promoting wellness and wellbeing in the workplace and the added benefits to individuals and their families of taking a proactive approach to improving health outcomes.  For this reason and following the success of CSU's Wellness and Wellbeing Expos (held since 2013) the University will be again conducting the Wellness and Wellbeing Expo on selected campuses March during 2018.

We will be rolling out the MindRazr health & wellbeing platform to CSU staff as part of our workplace wellbeing program. MindRazr is a mobile / web platform that combines guided health & wellbeing exercises with music of your choosing and we encourage all staff to make use of the platform.
Watch the demonstration video.

In a nutshell MindRazr makes it easy to deliver customised health & wellbeing programs via streamed audio and video exercises which are delivered via mobile app and streamed alongside music of the users choosing. Each session is user driven and integrates exercises from the wellbeing program into the user's existing music listening habits, making the exercises more accessible, enjoyable and effective. The platform also provides anonymised and aggregated data relating to the mental and physical wellbeing of the workplace (helping to manage WHS risk), as well providing visibility over program engagement and effectiveness.
