FIFO Health & Lifestyle Program

We’re proud to announce that we now have a new arm to our business which is providing health & lifestyle services to the mining sector and associated industries requiring FIFO employees.

We’re excited to be associated and providing our health & lifestyle programs with Evolution Facility Management and the Home Ground facility in Calliope.


Why Onsite Health & Fitness Programs? 

It is well documented that being overweight or obese, sedentary and the use of tobacco are adversely affecting the health and productivity of employees and ultimately, the businesses’ bottom line. As a result, innovative employers are providing their employees with a variety of work-site-based health promotion and disease prevention programs.

These programs have been shown to improve employee health, increase productivity and yield a significant return on investment for the employer. The productivity of any organization is linked to the health of its employees, and ultimately, “the bottom line”. There are an increasing number of research studies that indicate healthy employees are more productive and absent less often.

Recent research conducted by Medibank Private* found:

• Healthy employees are nearly 3 times more productive than employees with poor health

• Employees with poor health take up to 9 times more sick leave than their healthy colleagues

• Poor employee health and absenteeism is costing Australian business $7billion annually

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics* in a 2005 study 54% of the adult population are overweight or obese.

Our mission is to provide a health conscious environment for facility management companies and mining camps to value add to their service to guests, and most importantly employees health.

“Evolution Facility Management operates a full service accommodation facility located at Calliope west of Gladstone. As part of this full service facility is an on site health & fitness centre incorporating health and lifestyle programs, seminars, events and other recreational facilities available for use by guests, which is facilitated by function well.

Evolution Facility Management (EFM) acts as a facility manager in the mining accommodation industry. EFM engaged Function Well to implement a healthy lifestyle program at its flagship site MGA Gladstone (located in Calliope, Queensland). MGA Gladstone has over 1300 rooms with plans to increase this to well over 2000 rooms. 

Function Well’s experienced team assisted with presenting a comprehensive proposal to project manage the implementation of a full lifestyle function, including management of onsite gym and recreational areas to maximise their usage by guests. Function Well’s team were highly professional, and by providing regular updates, this gave our business comfort the project was progressing according to the scope of work.

Function Well also provided flexibility throughout all stages to adapt to variations in our scope of work. Our project was met with great feedback from guests and EFM would proudly recommend Function Well as a business partner.”
