Lotterywest and Healthway

Workplace Profile

Lotterywest was established in 1932 and runs the lottery in Western Australia. Lotterywest is a statutory authority of the Government of Western Australia and aims to enhance the quality of life and well-being of all Western Australians. Lotterywest has proudly supported the Western Australian community for over 80 years and remains committed to its vision to build a better Western Australian together.

In 2018 - 2019 Healthway amalgamated with Lotterywest as part of the machinery of government changes. Healthway’s role is to promote and facilitate good health and activities in Western Australia that encourage healthy lifestyles. The amalgamation allows both agencies to work together positively to focus on their collective work - building a better and healthier Western Australia.

Health and Wellbeing Profile

The Lotterywest Wellness Program has been running for more than 2 years and is coordinated by the People and Culture team.

Planning

Following support from the Corporate Executive Team, which included allocating a budget for the People and Culture Team to plan and coordinate staff health and wellbeing activities, a Wellness Program was launched. A sub-committee to oversee staff health and wellbeing, and occupational safety and health, was also established. 

Health and Wellbeing Program Activities

The Lotterywest Wellness Program implements the following activities:

  • Staff education and awareness raising presentations
  • Subsidised staff fitness activities such as yoga, tennis and volleyball
  • Sit-stand workstations
  • End of trip facilities
  • Corporate smart riders to encourage staff to actively commute
  • Individual Health Assessments including flu vaccinations and skin checks

Staff consultation and evaluation is carried out by assessing employee feedback, awareness and participation. In addition, Lotterywest run a bi-annual staff engagement survey which includes feedback on the Wellness Program.

Goals for the Future

  • Transitioning to become a Gold Recognised Healthy Workplace
