Health and Wellbeing Achievements

The RAC recognises that its people are key to the success of the organisation. Without great people, the RAC wouldn’t be the organisation it is today. The RAC also understands the importance of creating a healthy workplace culture, and have been striving to integrate positive health and wellness concepts into the regular work environment across all workplace locations. The organisation gives back to its employees by investing in health promoting initiatives supported by a dedicated health and wellness program. This program is firmly embedded within the groups Health and Safety Strategic Plan. As such, the Health and Wellness team strive to promote positive lifestyle behaviours via both internal and community-led health and wellbeing initiatives.

The programs put in place are strongly supported by the executive and leadership teams as it’s believed that an increase in employee health is strongly linked to:

  • increased employee engagement and therefore increased productivity;
  • improved employee retention and attraction;
  • reduced workers compensation; and
  • reduced absenteeism.

In recent years the Health and Wellbeing Program has developed into a comprehensive, well-developed and successful program offering a suite of tailored and holistic resources. Such initiatives include group wide:

  • behaviour change interventions
  • weight management programs
  • health education and promotion sessions
  • cooking classes
  • healthy heart checks
  • eye testing
  • flu vaccinations
  • fitness and meditation classes
  • discounted gym memberships
  • private health insurance discounts.

The program also aligns itself and endorses the messages presented by Live Lighter, Act-Belong-Commit and Club Red. 

Additionally, the RAC has demonstrated its commitment to both its people and its mobility agenda by investing in state of the art end of trip facilities.
