RCC in the Top 50 Best Places to Work in Australia

Recognition as one of the Best Places to Work in Australia is a significant achievement for RCC in a demanding and pressurised construction market. Our employees are our best asset, consequently this award means even more knowing it is a result of their experience. The Great Place to Work assessment is based on feedback obtained from a confidential survey of our 600 employees and an independent cultural audit across 9 practice areas.

To be named 17th in our category (100-999 employees), amongst companies such as Salesforce and Stryker in our first year of evaluation is an outstanding achievement for RCC and a reflection of our personnel’s commitment to each other, our clients and the industry.

The goal to provide a fulfilling and supportive work environment prompted us to submit an application to become an Employer of Choice and make it to the Top 50 Best Places to Work in Australia.  We set out to understand our employee experience in the context of Australia’s best workplaces, to highlight focus areas for future commitment and to ultimately be recognised as a Great Place to Work.

We did it. We are honoured to have been recognised as a Great Place to Work in our first year of evaluation.

This acknowledgment compliments our recent recognition in the Employee Engagement Awards (2017) and highlights the strength of our culture of high performance, development, autonomy and collaboration.

The Best Places to Work awards are based on an independent study coordinated by the Great Place to Work Institute. Great Place to Work Australia is an organisation, whose recognition has become an international standard for excellence in workplace culture. After more than 30 years of research the Institute operate across 44 countries, surveying 6,200 companies annually.

“THE 50 BEST ARE SETTING THE STANDARD FOR ALL BUSINESSES.”

RCC’s Impact on the Aged Care and Retirement Living landscape

Economic, social and cultural outcomes for providers and residents

RCC has a long history in the design and construction of specialised social infrastructure. In 2015 we invested further in RCC’s specialised Aged Care and Retirement Living division, matching our capabilities in the health and social housing sectors. Our subsequent 300% growth in aged care delivery is recognition of our ability to deliver quality, state of the art facilities which still feel like home and provide better living for residents.

RCC has been building for 42 years and innovating in the aged care and retirement living sector since 1993, recognising the mounting demographic and cost pressures of infrastructure and care provider availability.

“To meet Australian aged care demand we need to deliver a 120 bed aged care facility every two weeks for the next 10 years. We appreciate the need for sustainable solutions and quality facilities and we share the age care sectors commitment to providing the senior members of our community with the security of a comfortable home and quality of life”
Martin Patience- Joint GM, Aged Care & Retirement Living, RCC

Having successfully delivered a range of Residential Aged Care Facilities, Independent Living Units and Retirement Villages in NSW and ACT metropolitan and regional areas, RCC underwrites the success of major new facilities and the necessary transformation of existing homes to emulate the amenity and aesthetics of today.

We are proud of the projects we have delivered to date and enjoy reflecting on our handover of facilities that our clients are proud of, as much as we are as well as the contribution we have made to those older Australian’s who now call them home.

Our project team’s partner with leading aged care and retirement living operators, experienced design teams and industry specialists, looking for opportunities to speed up, go modular, prefabricate and achieve high levels of quality, amenity and service from every dollar spent.

“Designing and delivering state of the art aged care and retirement homes merge the preventative, therapeutic and rehabilitation needs of residents in a secure, comfortable, home environment allowing them to stay active, happy and connected to their families. Innovative technology and construction services ensure our projects meet their current and future needs”
Rod Burger- Joint GM, Aged Care & Retirement Living, RCC

Our highly experienced and focused aged care team are supported by the substantial financial backing and delivery systems of a long established multi-sector construction business.

Looking forward, our client teams and residents can continue to count on our skills and support to further evolve and enjoy the journey of working with RCC.
