Kickstart your fitness journey

Earlier this year, People and Culture conducted an Idea Scale survey, asking staff how they can be best rewarded and recognised for the work they do.

By providing staff with this opportunity, People and Culture have partnered with two companies – Fitness Passport and Wherefit, to bring Northern Health employees a tailored wellness package.

Fitness Passport is a tailored workplace health and fitness program designed to help employees on their health journey. At a highly discounted rate, Northern Health staff and their families can gain access to a range of gyms, pools and leisure centres across Victoria as often as they like.

“We want staff to feel recognised, and rewarded for all their efforts over the last two years. This exciting partnership is a way of saying to our staff that their health and wellbeing is our priority, the same way that they have prioritised the health of the community, particularly throughout this global pandemic. We encourage all Northern Health employees to have their say now on what they want to get out of their own personalised Fitness Passport, and then sign up to reap all the benefits once the program is ready to go live,” said Renee Camilleri, Wellbeing Advisor.

A short online survey has been sent to all staff, asking staff what gyms, pools and leisure centres they want to appear on the Fitness Passport. To access the survey, click here. There are also posters around each campus, featuring QR codes to scan straight through to the survey, which closes on June 5.

Once the survey closes, the Fitness Passport sign up phase launches at the end of June, which will be personalised to our staff requests.

Wherefit is an online benefits platform that gives employees instant access to exclusive corporate rates at over 400 fitness and wellbeing partners across Australia. Negotiated discounts are also available at leading online wellbeing retailers including The Iconic Sport, HelloFresh, Under Armour, Adore Beauty, Reebok and more. All staff need to do is sign up. This will launch in early July.
