Since 1904 the Retirement Benefit Fund has been serving Tasmania’s public sector as a superannuation fund. The RBF provides wealth creation services to 75,000 members and manages $4.9 billion in investments, financial advice is offered through RBF financial planning.
The organisation bases itself on the following values – ‘opportunity to grow’, ‘promoting life-style’, ‘caring for members’, ‘performance culture’ and ‘contemporary environment’.
RBF understands that there are key elements of continuing success – they list theirs as learning and development, health and wellbeing, and employee engagement. These three factors are used to develop a healthier workplace. The group launched an employee engagement project, a health and wellbeing program and a learning and development function to support the mental and physical health and education of its employees. The Employee Engagement project helped to measure challenges faced by individual employees, so that RBT could support them better.
In 2015 Retirements Benefit Fund has been recognised as an ABA100 Winner for Human Resource Management in The Australian Business Awards.
