At TWUSUPER we aim to help promote physical and emotional wellness both inside and outside the workplace. Healthy communities mean healthy individuals.
Promoting workplace wellness
TWUSUPER's partnership with SuperFriend helps employers and members build safe, mentally healthy organisations where all workers can thrive. This partnership is part of our ongoing commitment to our members' wellbeing. Find out about the potential benefits here.
TWUSUPER also participates in R U OK day each September, and we encourage others to do the same.
Joining in the Mothers' Day Classic
The Mother’s Day Classic walk and fun run was developed by Women in Super to deliver a fun, healthy and inspirational event that brings communities all across Australia together on Mother’s Day to support and remember those touched by breast cancer. TWUSUPER encourages its employees and their families to participate in this event.
Supporting women in transport
Although the industry traditionally has more male than female workers, women have always played an important role both behind the wheel and in other roles. TWUSUPER supports the work of Australian transport associations which are working to promote the work of women in transport - including the Victorian Transport Association (VTA) and Transport Women Australia.
As well as being the major sponsor of the VTA's Women in Transport lunch, we also support Transport Women Australia's biannual conference.
Helping train the people who keep Australia moving
To support the people who keep Australia moving, TWUSUPER supports various training programs.
In 2019/20, more than 1,500 people are expected to undertake training through the Victorian Transport Association (VTA) in:
- Industrial Waste,
- Chain of Responsibility,
- Management Training, and
- The Driver Delivery Program, in conjunction with Armstrong Training and VicRoads, provides new-entrant drivers with the exposure to the driving environment they will encounter as a professional driver.
Tackling modern slavery
TWUSUPER believes every person has the right to freedom, and to be safe and respected in their day-to-day lives. We've started our implementation of the Modern Slavery Act to protect workers in and outside of Australia. We've set out a framework to ensure we monitor legislation and adopt best practice so our staff (and those employed by our suppliers) are treated fairly, supported and respected.
