As the weather warms up it is the perfect time to get staff moving. The EMRC HR team have been encouraging healthy lifestyle and fitness activities by starting an after work walking group!

This November the walking club will be meeting every Monday afternoon, and they will be keeping it fun and diverse by changing up their walking tracks every week! Tracks will range in distance from 4km to 8km as everyone builds up their ability.

The walking club will be led by a member of our HR team who knows the local area of the Swan River and Ascot. The new walking club is a great opportunity to bring staff together and get in touch with the surrounding natural environment, the beautiful Swan River and local community areas.

The health promotion calendar is shared among all staff members and positioned in common areas to encourage staff to continue to participate in healthy and active activities! Here’s an example of one of the popular walking tracks as it covers natural bush land, the Swan River, safe paths and direct routes.
