At Rail Projects Victoria (RPV) we have one of the most progressive wellbeing programs in the Victorian Public Service. We recognise that our people are critical to our ability to deliver business outcomes, and we understand that a holistic approach is required in engaging, satisfying and retaining our people. Our vision is to build a safe and trusting environment that values and pursues balance and health and provides a strong platform for continuous development and high performance.
Our wellbeing program covers a wide range of health and wellbeing topics and themes. We offer yearly flu vaccinations and skin checks, guest speaker events, lunchtime activities, Mental Health First Aid training – just to name a few!
RPV is committed to providing an inclusive, trusting and supporting working environment that positively affects the mental health and wellbeing of our people.
We understand that life balance is an important part of our employees' lives. That's why we have developed and implemented a wide range of flexible work/life balance options such as working from home, flexible working hours and generous leave provisions including the 44/52 model of employment.
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides access to professional advice to help our staff and their immediate families cope with life's difficult issues. This is a personal coaching and counselling service that offers confidential, short-term support for a variety of work-related and personal problems that may be affecting you or your immediate family members.
Inclusion is a core part of working at RPV – we’re committed to creating a safe, understanding, and inclusive workplace where everyone is empowered to be their full and authentic selves. We are a workplace that values the diversity of thoughts and experiences each of us possesses, applauds collaboration and innovation, and seeks to advance equity in all its forms.
As part of our commitments, we have a range of initiatives to help foster an inclusive workplace, including:
- Trainbow Pride (our LGBTIQA+ pride group), Wear it Purple and IDAHOBIT Day celebrations
- Women in Transport Network (a networking group for women of all lived experiences and identities) and International Women’s Day celebrations
- NAIDOC and National Reconciliation Week celebrations, as well as a partnership with Kinaway Chamber of Commerce
- Annual participation in STEPtember and International Day of People with Disability celebrations
