That well employees are happier in their roles, are more resilient and can manage change better. In addition, companies with successful wellness programs have higher employee retention rates improving overall project and company performance.

Corporate wellbeing program
Our Wellbeing team follows a holistic and whole-of-person approach, offering physical and mental health support including workplace initiatives, capability building, training and wellbeing specialists.
Understanding, flexibility and dialogue underpin our stakeholder engagement approach. We'll work with you and your stakeholders to truly understand the benefits, the impacts and the challenges of your project - from everyone's point of view. Then we'll identify how your design, development and delivery can intersect positively with the interests of your stakeholders and local communities.
This means it’s essential that we foster and maintain real, transparent and collaborative working relationships - both with you and with your stakeholders.
We have to be every bit as familiar with your team, systems and protocols as we are with the needs, interests and agendas of your stakeholders. Only then can we ensure everyone’s needs are considered and aligned, all activities are tailored to the specific levels of interest and influence of your stakeholders, and all outcomes are consistent with policy objectives and designed to maximise community benefit.
Our team has the skills and natural aptitude required to work transparently, collaboratively and proactively. Professionals who are not only experienced, but also passionate about overcoming barriers, and focusing on collective goals rather than individual objectives.
Our wellness is influenced by the physical, social and cultural environments in which we live and work. The wellbeing of our team, our partners and our communities is paramount to our success and is the foundation of our core values.

Comacon delivers our consultancy services for our clients based on sustainability best practices. We have a strict screening process for suppliers and subcontractors to ensure conduct is ethical and responsible. We help our clients raise public awareness about the environment and sustainability by developing communication strategies or activities that promote the clients’ environmental and sustainability actions/innovations to local communities.
Sustainability in infrastructure projects cover several areas including planning and design, road user safety, access to local businesses and property, and the reuse and recycling of timber. In many infrastructure projects, Comacon’s Community Engagement staff work closely with Environmental and Sustainability teams to ensure that noise, dust, and water pollution are assessed, minimised, and managed effectively in the community. This is to reduce the impact of the construction work to residents and to find the most appropriate solutions for stakeholders.
