The Important Topics
Workplace Health and Safety (WHS)
At Whizdom, we make the health and safety of our contractors our top priority in the workplace. We're committed to keeping our contractors informed of best practices to promote workplace health and safety.
In the event of any workplace health and safety incidents, we have a WHS Incident Report Register in place to monitor and address any issues.
Click hereto make a report on Whizdom's WHS Incident Report Register.
As a responsible employer, we have a duty of care and statutory responsibilities to ensure the safety of our contractors and employees in the workplace. Our aim is to prevent and minimise work-related injuries or illnesses, encourage healthy lifestyles, and provide the safest possible work environment for our contractors.
Employee Assistance Program through Mind Fit at Work
Contractors and staff at Whizdom have ongoing access to a employee assistance program through Mind Fit at Work. This program connects employees and contractors with a nationwide network of licenced mental health professionals who can provide brief, one-on-one counselling sessions on a wide range of issues, including those that may arise in the workplace. In addition to helping with professional challenges, they can also support with more personal matters. This service is confidential and optional for all staff.
Visit the Mind Fit at Work website, for more information about this service.

Contractor Training Opportunities
Whizdom are partnering with the best in the business to bring you flexible training sessions after hours so you can avoid time management and cashflow impacts of traditional training delivery. All training is performed onsite at Whizdom’s office in Bruce, ACT. Current available training: PRINCE2 Foundation & ITIL 4 Plus simulation.
The whole Whizdom team care about the well-being of our contractors. Together, we make a point of checking-in; catching up in a relaxed environment; seeing how the engagement is going; assisting with work-life balance; and looking for early indicators of stress contributors.
Social networking events such as the famous ‘Whizdom Pizza in the Park’, Barefoot Bowls, Lunch, Brunch, and Morning Tea events, give our contractors the opportunity to become part of the Whizdom Contractor community. We get together in a social setting and build on the Whizdom team spirit – adhering to COVID safe rules of course!
End of Contract Feedback opportunities
Whizdom recognise that contractors coming to the end of their engagement can provide valuable perspectives on their overall interactions with Whizdom and their clients. End of contract surveys are completed to capture this vital information if contractors are happy to participate.
If you have not yet received your bag of Whizdom goodies, please let our Contractor Care Manager know and we will organise delivery as soon as possible.
