This covers all modes of transport, including healthy options such as cycling and walking.

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. 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 RAC gives back to its employees by investing in health promoting initiatives supported by a dedicated health and wellness program. Health is firmly embedded within RAC employee behaviours, strongly supported by executive and leadership teams and a part of the overall health and safety strategy.     

Since launching our health and wellness program and continually growing it over the past 16 years, our people have seen significant benefits across the board, including improved productivity, lower stress levels, greater levels of engagement and improved energy levels. Our tailored and holistic health and wellbeing initiatives include:

  • No smoking policy, no designated smoking areas, and providing support to staff who wish to quit or cut down
  • Alcohol Guidelines regarding the provision of alcohol at staff social events, and the "RAC Good Function Guide" which supports staff in organising events where alcohol may be served 
  • Pool Bike Program (including E-Bikes) and Workplace Travel Plan to support staff to actively commute
  • Interactive intranet with credible tools and resources to help improve or maintain a healthy lifestyle
  • Health screens (health risk assessments, heart checks, hearing assessments, eye checks) and flu vaccinations
  • Activities and education in identified risk areas of smoking, nutrition, physical activity, weight management and mental wellbeing
  • Opportunities to increase physical activity throughout the day including standing meetings, groups stretching breaks, on-site exercise equipment and fitness classes, and discounted gym memberships
  • End of trip facilities to promote active commuting to and from work, including e-bike loan schemes and charging stations
  • Well developed Boost Champions Program where workplace champions help to support the program and increase staff participation

The program also aligns itself and endorses the messages presented by LiveLighter, Act-Belong-Commit and RUOK?.
