About Charlotte Hathaway

Originally from Paekakariki, I am a Corporate Anthropologist with over 25 years experience in workplace health and wellbeing. I have a diverse range of experience that includes working in public and community health, private practice, industrial, corporate and government environments.

I have an extensive knowledge of the health and wellbeing sector, a thorough understanding of the health and safety legislation, occupational health processes, health promotion and wellbeing strategies.

I apply anthropological methods and ideas to view the big picture of your workplace culture. This enables me to work with you to develop and implement behavioural change strategies that are both applicable and sustainable to your organisation’s culture. 

My strength is engagement. I am a strategic thinker and believe that people are the greatest asset to any organization. I have excellent relationship building skills. I listen and establish trust. I am an agile and adaptive leader who is passionate about wellbeing, competent at health risk assessment, solution design, and facilitation of  seamless implementation. I work in a way that empowers stakeholders to take ownership of the process, the results, and the ongoing effort to sustain engagement.


“I had the pleasure of working with Charlotte, Occupational Health & Wellness Advisor at CentrePort Wellington. Charlotte implemented a number of wellness initiatives at the Port which contributed to increasing wellbeing engagement. Charlotte provided me with great advice on managing my own wellbeing, endorsed by my medical practitioner who suggested I continue working with her. Charlotte is a breath of fresh air, fun to work with and has had a positive influence on wellbeing culture, which I have personally benefited from.”

“Having worked with Charlotte on a number of highly complex cases in safety critical areas, I have found her to be approachable, highly professional and thorough. Charlotte is easy to speak with as a colleague about complicated medical matters and I suspect her nursing background gives a significant advantage with these matters. I highly recommend Charlotte as a consultant in Occupational health and wellbeing.”

“Charlotte’s professional manner and broad knowledge of wellness and fatigue issues enabled our team to move forward in a positive way. Her holistic approach empowers individuals with sound education and challenging conversation, she enabled us to break new ground in a changing working environment with all the necessary tools required to succeed.”

“Our work with Charlotte and her team at CentrePort was aimed at reducing our fatigue levels in the Marine department whilst concentrating on health & well-being.  We are very happy with Charlottes work.  Her ideas and processes resulted in new SOP’s and roster systems for Marine which has helped our team immensely. The end result was beyond our expectations and we accomplished our goal. What we appreciated most about working with Charlotte was her ability to cut through the predictable politics of a project, keep everyone happy, and deliver the expected results… and then some.”
