Frequently asked questions

What type of work roles are ROW Gold members normally in?

Most ROW Gold members are what we call wellbeing managers.

At ROW, we define a workplace wellbeing manager as the person (or people) responsible for workplace wellbeing strategies and programs in organisations. This may be a full-time role or may be combined with other functional responsibilities, such as human resources, or health and safety.

Common role titles include:

  • Health, Safety and Wellbeing Manager / Adviser / Business Partner
  • Organisational Development Manager / Adviser / Business Partner
  • Health and Wellbeing Manager / Adviser / Business Partner
  • Human Resources Manager / Adviser / Business Partner
  • People, Culture and Engagement Manager / Adviser / Business Partner

Some organisations have taken it a step further and recruited a dedicated wellbeing manager. Accounting giant Xero recently appointed a Head of Wellbeing and is expanding the team while dairy export giant Fonterra has had a dedicated team for some time.

Other role titles include:

  • Chief Culture Officer or Chief Health and Wellbeing Officer
  • VP or Senior Manager of Culture and Engagement
  • Global Wellbeing Program Manager
  • Manager of Flexible Work
  • Senior Benefits Manager

In other organisations, responsibility can fall to an informal committee of employees keen to make a difference or a network of wellbeing champions who combine the work with other unrelated functional responsibilities (e.g. operational or technical roles).

We call these people ‘wellbeing champions’ and we warmly welcome them to join too!

Other members are wellbeing experts, academics, and contract wellbeing specialists.

Can wellbeing managers be ROW Gold individual members or do they need to purchase a ROW Gold organisation membership?

Wellbeing managers can be individual members. In fact, most of our members are. Typically, their organisation pays for their individual membership out of a training or a wellbeing budget, recognising that a membership to ROW Gold is both a professional development opportunity and an effective way to improve workplace wellbeing.

The difference between the two memberships is:

  • the individual membership option is for wellbeing managers who want to improve wellbeing across their workplace.
  • the organisation membership option is for organisations that want to invest in the workplace wellbeing manager profession through ROW, supporting industry-wide initiatives.

This page is for joining as an individual. To join as a organisation, read more here.

 

How embedded does wellbeing need to be in my organisation? 

The ‘maturity’ of wellbeing across organisations varies greatly. Some of our members work for organisations that have a well-embedded wellbeing strategy in the workplace, while others are at the beginning of their journey. The benefit for members is you can learn from the experiences of others and share challenges, solutions, and more.

Plus, you can tap into the knowledge and skill of experts.
