RAC's workplace health and wellbeing program, titled Boost, is coordinated by a Health and Wellness Consultant and supported by a Wellness Coordinator and a network of Boost Champions. The Boost program focuses on long-term behaviour change through their four pillars; Move Well, Eat Well, Think Well and Live Well. In November 2019 RAC renewed its recognition as a Gold Recognised Healthy Workplace. Congratulations RAC.
RAC's Boost program has been running since 2002. Since this time the program has grown and evolved into a comprehensive program targeting smoking, nutrition, alcohol, physical activity and mental health. The Boost program is embedded in the organisation's Health and Safety Strategic Plan and ensures that senior leaders across the organisation support health and wellness strategies.
Health and wellness staff have undertaken HWWA Coordinator Training and staff consultation is carried out using the network of Boost Champions who are responsible for promoting program activities to staff teams and departments. There are currently 39 champions across the organisation, including regional Member Service Centres, Auto Service Centres and Roadside Patrols.
"Another key to the success of the Boost program is the growing network of Boost Champions. These are volunteers that have a passion for health and wellness and assist in promoting initiatives across our large organisation." says the Health and Wellness Consultant.
Boost activities are promoted via the RAC intranet which links to a range of HWWA resources such as healthier catering and healthier food and drinks guide, Livelighter resources such as the 3-2-1 Meal Plan, and Cancer Council WA resources. Other methods of engagement and promotion are specifically tailored to employees who are not office based.
RAC's Boost Program encompasses a wide range of different strategies and activities, including:
