Gumala Aboriginal Corporation (GAC) was created in 1996 to represent the collective interests of the Traditional Owners of land central to negotiations at the time with Hamersley Iron Pty Ltd – a wholly owned subsidiary of Rio Tinto. As a result of the negotiations, the Yandi Land Use Agreement was signed in March 1997. It was the first land use agreement of its kind in Australia and enables Rio Tinto to undertake mining activity on the traditional lands of the Gumala people - the Bunjima and Yinhawangka and Nyiyaparli people - in exchange for compensation. The objectives of the Corporation are to provide direct relief from poverty, sickness, suffering, destitution, misfortune and homelessness of the Traditional Owners of the land used for mining activity.
GAC has it's head office in Tom Price from where community projects, education programs and operational services are delivered. There is also an office in East Perth, where it's Corporate Services are located.
After receiving Bronze Recognition in 2016, Gumala Aboriginal Coorporation transitioned to become a Silver Recognised Healthy Workplace in October 2018.
The Gumala Aboriginal Corporation Health and Wellbeing Program is coordinated by the Human Resources and Training Manager. Following support from Senior Management to implement best practice workplace health and wellbeing initiatives, the Program Coordinator undertook the HWWA Coordinator Training (both the online module and then face to face training workshop).
Also during the planning stages, staff consultation was carried out via a staff survey to assess awareness and knowledge of the four SNAP lifestyle risk factors (smoking, nutrition, alcohol and physical activity). Results from the staff consultation were used to guide the development of a Workplace Health and Wellbeing Action Plan.
Through providing healthier catering options, Gumala Aboriginal Corporation has observed how the workplace health and wellbeing program has not only positively impacted their employee’s health and wellbeing, but also those individuals who are external to the organisation and visit the workplace for various meetings or events (for example, the Annual General Meeting and Board Meetings).
“It was inspiring for the team to see we had been recognised as a healthier workplace by including the Recognition Icon on our email and placing the certificate in our reception area. This built a sense of pride and involvement,“ Human Resources Manager, Gumala Aboriginal Corporation
“Having awareness of health and well being in the workplace makes it easier to practice healthy food choices and stay informed about the benefits of healthy options.”
