Northern Health launches ‘Lucky to Have You’ raffle

At Northern Health, we recognise the importance of ensuring our staff feel valued and appreciated in the workplace.

During Employee Appreciation Day in March, we asked for staff input via Idea Scale, on how you wanted to be appreciated.

A number of recognition ideas were submitted, which generated 92 votes and 101 views. Some of the themes that came out of these suggestions included more frequent staff raffles and other tokens of appreciation like free staff carparking, coffee cards and other vouchers.

As a result of your feedback, Northern Health is pleased to launch the ‘Lucky to Have You’ initiative, launching 1 September 2023.

‘Lucky to Have You’ is a new monthly Employee Appreciation Raffle that will offer all staff a chance to win one prize from the selection below (to the value of $140):

  • One month of free onsite staff carparking
  • Coffee vouchers
  • Movie tickets
  • Coles Group voucher
  • Dining voucher
  • Airbnb voucher

The raffle will be drawn on the first of each month, with your employee number as your ticket.

Winners will be contacted by People Experience to arrange their prize selection and collection, and announced via the Intranet.

“‘Lucky to Have You’ aims to demonstrate our thanks and appreciation for your contribution to Northern Health. We know our staff are our most valuable asset and work hard to deliver quality health care in the north. So, we have committed to showing our appreciation all year round, to ensure our people feel valued, not just on Employee Appreciation Day, but every day,” said Bianca Fazzari, People Experience Business Partner, People and Culture.

This is not the first time Northern Health has hosted free staff employee raffles. Himansu Asija, Talent Acquisition Partner, People and Culture, was the winner of the recent My Voice Raffle in June. He used his winnings to book a trip to Bright and Hotham.

“I haven’t won many raffles to date, but I am greatly pleased about this one,” he said.

“The only thing I am able to express is my sincere gratitude towards Northern Health. It gave me an opportunity, as I otherwise wouldn’t have planned a trip to Bright and Mount Hotham. It was quite a refreshing experience and we had fun there.”

The first Lucky to Have You raffle will be drawn this Friday, 1 September 2023. For more information, including a raffle schedule, please visit the Intranet.
